4.0 out of 5 stars Dream Teams, 27 Jun 2007
This review is from: Goal! 2 - Living The Dream [DVD] (DVD)
I really liked the original film, it was a typical rags to riches story and, although at times it was a little trite, it had bags of energy and more than a little soul. The fact that the filmmakers have decided to go ahead with their plans for a trilogy (despite the relatively poor worldwide takings) is something that to feel good about. This will end up being a proper trilogy. Part 2 sees Santiago Nunez join Real Madrid and, like the first films Newcastle action, the most memorable moments are those when actors integrate with the actual team players. We get to see all the Galacticos from the 2005/6 team in training, partying and playing modes. Barcelona and Arsenal also feature heavily. Even senior Real figures make appearances, although somewhat bizarrely Rutger Hauer plays the manager with Steve McManaman as his assistant. Outside the fictional footballing story (which has Beckham acting the hero with a Greece type winning free kick - Arsenal fans should look away) we have the usual relationship/family shenanigans which was a feature of the first. All in all it's probably as good as the first film...so bring on Part 3 and the world cup - which presumably will feature Santi weighing up whether to play for USA, Mexico or Spain before going on to win the World Cup with one.

Special features include a great, but short, documentary which details how they put the footballing shots together (pretty amazing stuff with entire games shot using multi-cameras using film not tape!) as well as the usual unnecessary deleted scenes and unfunny bloopers.

You would be so disappointed with the third film of the series. According to many reviews I have read, Santi barely features in the film, not to mention thee World Cup.
