Based on the best book about football ever (Time Out) by Pete Davies, One Night in Turin tells the incredible inside story of Englands Italia 1990. From an age before the Premier League and multi-million pound salaries, remember how a under pressure (Sir) Bobby Robson and the mercurial Paul Gascoigne led a small band of English brothers to overcome scandal, political intrigue and even the mighty Dutch, to reach a semi-final against West Germany in Turin. From Platts last-minute winner against Belgium and Linekers cool finishing, to the heartbreak of being one kick away from the World Cup Final, relive all the glory and pain of an epic event that changed our footballing nation forever. Featuring match action from the FIFA archives and previously unseen footage from inside the England camp, as the nation begins to dream again, see how the modern age of the game began.

I was 17 in 1990; I remember Italia 90 with more fondness than any tournament before or since. I watched virtually every match and it came at a perfect time in my life. And I loved Pete Davies' book, All Played Out (although that now appears to have changed its name to One Night in Turin as well). This, then, is the film of the book.

And the archive footage is put together very well. But why the intrusive and (let's be honest, not very well done) reconstructions? The footage is supplemented by close up shots of feet kicking footballs, snappers taking pictures and, most bizarrely, a pervy reporter leering through a door at a footballer in bed with a page 3 lovely. It's just weird. Gary Oldman's commentary is also strangely laddish when it doesn't need to be. In places it was halfway towards Danny Dyers bosh bosh bosh.

And that is not to say that, overall, it's not highly enjoyable. Particularly if, like me, you are the right age to remember all of this. But the film makers made some really odd choices along the way

I was a kid during during this World Cup, barely in my teens. And frankly I wasn't really that in to football before. But I did watch England play in this tournament. And I was hooked.

The drama twisted my stomach. The players played their hearts out, and they played damn good football too in the games that mattered. The manager, Bobby Robson, was as brilliant and as decent a bloke as I would like to be myself. He was a man I could look up to, and so were many of the players. These people really cared.

Both the players and the manager did the country proud, and made us feel good.

But it is what was achieved on the pitch which was great, and there is very little footage of actual play. I'd guess about ten minutes of England playing in total- could be wrong but that's what it felt like. There's more footage of actors feet reenacting England players than actual footage of the tournament. It's as though they only had a fiver to pay FIFA for footage and had to make up the rest with actors legs.

And this movie is quite political too for some reason, quite left wing in parts. And this makes no sense because England supporters are a mix of people who have their own individual political opinions.

There is far too much description of the football and not nearly enough actual football.

Very, very disappointing.

Ultimately I felt let down after seeing this. A lot of it is good, there is some great archive footage in addition to the stuff you'll see replayed every few years on TV. There are some good interviews from during Italia 90 with Bobby Robson and the players, some good footage of training sessions and players relaxing by the pool or playing golf. The scene is also quite nicely set against the backdrop of the so called hooligan problem which includes some enlightening interviews from the time with fans and police.

What ruined it for me mostly was that they felt the need to intersperse their footage with reconstructions of some of the incidents. As if the drama isn't compelling enough from watching action from the game we are subjected to watching close ups of actors legs as they mimic some of the action. It's almost like the director is trying to copy the 1986 FIFA film, Hero. Against Cameroon in the quarter final, Lineker is brought down for a penalty, but rather than see the actual footage the moment is poorly recreated by some actors! It's Baddiel and Skinner "Phoenix From the Flames" stuff. In the semi final, Chris Waddle hits a shot from near the halfway line which is tipped onto the bar by German keeper Bodo Illgner, at which point the action cuts to treat us to a replica ball hitting a replica post.

During the scenes of rioting on the streets it is felt that the viewer needs a close up reconstruction of a glass smashing on the ground and, just to be doubly sure we feel the aggression, there are some actors pretending to be hooligans waving their arms round and gesticulating. Oh and of course there are some actors pretending to be journalists rubbing their hands together in smoky rooms at their next evil plot.

I thoroughly enjoyed One Night in Turin. Sentimental in places, perhaps, but for a just turned 30 something who's first memories of a football tournament come from Italia '90, it brought back some great memories. I particularly enjoyed the behind the scenes excerpts, which give a fascinating insight into the culture of the squad and team management. Also to see Bobby Robson in his prime, full of fight and gusto, just like we all want to remember him, was great! The reconstructions may grate some, but they only truly form a very small part of an overall excellent documentary. In summary, Gazza's fallen brilliance, Robson's plucky pride and just a single kick away from the Word Cup Final. For me, this was the perfect way to get in the mood for South Africa!

The 90 World Cup was special for me. It was the first World Cup that I watched live on TV. Of course the fact that England did well helped immensely. I found the tie in between the social issues and the England national team fascination. The documentary keys on the relationship between England's national team and the hooligans who followed them around. The music chosen for the soundtrack is fabulous and takes me right back to summer 1990. A few people have mentioned the new footage produced to add to the archived footage is weak. I didn't find it weak there was just to much of it. How many times do you need to see a glass broken. And some of the "new" football footage is annoying. There are a couple times when the new footage is edited in the middle of a save or a goal and it is plain that just seeing the full archival clip would be best. For example Lineker's goal that tied the Germany game. That was clutch and I wanted to see the full goal and celebration. Flawed but still really good stuff.
