From Amazon.co.uk

As far as memorable football matches go, Liverpool’s astonishing European Champions League victory of 2005 in Istanbul takes some beating, whether you’re a fan of the team or not. It’s effectively a pilgrimage to watch that match which forms the backbone of Will, a tidy British film featuring Perry Eggleton as the 11-year old title character.

The cast also features Bob Hoskins and Damian Lewis, whilst also attracting fleeting appearances from football icons Steven Gerrard and Kenny Dalglish. The latter pair, as you might expect, are safer in their primary careers. Eggleton, though, makes a good fist of his role as Will, even if the material does him few favours. Inevitably, his journey to the final is a problematic one, for reasons we won’t spoil. Perhaps just as inevitability, it’s a bumpy one from a narrative standpoint, too. A tighter, better script would have rejuvenated a film that, as it stands, relies on a lot of footballing goodwill to get through.

But Will does just about have enough in the tank. And as the search for the central character continues, while he runs off in search of his final dream, chances are you will be rooting for him to reach his goal. Beyond the film, the disc doesn’t have much else to commend it, but at least the title feature is worth a spin. --Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars what a nice surprise 6 Mar 2012
By afinio
Format:DVD
A must watch if you are a Liverpool fan, I'm 33 years old and although this movie is aimed mainly at kids it will resonate with all reds mans regardless of age.

A rollercoaster of emotions awaits the viewer, a fantastic story which will give you a lump in the throat one minute and have you laughing and feeling good the next.
