4.0 out of 5 stars Good entertainment., 11 Jun 2006

This review is from: Goal! [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
I am not a football fan. On the first day of the World Cup, this DVD arrived from Amazon rentals. I can't even remember listing it, but must have done. Great.

Well, in fact it's a damn good film. Poor boy overcomes problems to achieve success; yes it's been done before, but a couple of things mark this one out. Lots of interesting characters- especially our hero Nunez (Kuno Becker). Lots of cameo appearances-but was that really Sven? How did he get the time? The whole thing has a feel good appeal. And the cinematographer has rightly made Newcastle look beautiful. Some stunning shots of the Tyne. A bit of irony here, the poor boy coming over from L.A (which looks a right dump), home of Hollywood, to achieve fame in a formerly industrial northern English city, now looking very classy.

Definitely worth seeing.
