Blood of Heroes features a sport that you're not likely to see on ESPN. It's called "juggers," and Rutger Hauer is the champion jugger in the post-apocalyptic world; he goes from village to village with his entourage, brutishly taking on all comers. The action culminates in the bloody "league championship." Joan Chen costars as Hauer's apprentice in the film, which was released in Australia as Salute of the Jugger.

I've been waiting for this movie to become available for quite some time. Its really good. If you like dark, action futuristic movies like, what Rollerball tried to be, then buy this! P.S. Now if only someone would make John LeCarre's two BBC master espionage movies Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Smiley's People available in NTSC format, then I would truly be in Nirvana. Cheers.

If you like ''Mad Max'' type movies, this is a little gem not many have discovered. It is raw, muddy, violent and sexy without the trappings of special effects to detract from the ''earthyness'' that is the world in the future. It ain't pretty, but it is gritty. It's tough and interesting. The characters are compelling and the game is brutal and beautiful. A fun ride.

A story of honor, intrigue, and defeating all odds, this movie must be seen! Remeniscent of Mad Max and Rollerball, it mixes football and mideival sports in a post-apocalyptic age! One of my favorite actors (Hauer) and one of my favorite movies!
