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

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.

Once upon a time.... England went to a World Cup. Rather true to form they didn't win it. In fact they got knocked out on penalties, but that didn't stop it from being probably the best sporting tournament I've ever witnessed. This is a documentary of that campaign..
All of the previous reviews, with comments both positive and negative, have summed this up well, so I'll keep this brief.
There's an absolute glut of press and sporting interviews and news footage, from both just before and during England's World Cup campaign in Italy in 1990. The soundtrack contains a lot of popular music from the period, and the angle the narration favours is from a 'male, working class football fans' perspective. Narrated by Oldman, and interspersed with bits of reconstruction footage to give you something to look at, when it's discussing the dastardly press etc. There's footage of crowd trouble and some of the action from the games, which it keeps relatively brief, so that it can pluck at our heartstrings with nostalgia and individual portraits of some of the players and the manager.
Ultimately it does it's job well and I had a great deal of memories come flooding back to me.
In the end, I'm almost ashamed to say, that I'd forgotten just how magnificent Shilton, Gazza etc were in that tournament, who it was that first consoled Chris Waddle after THAT miss, and finally just how alarmingly massive, spectacles were in 1990!!
If you hold that tournament in high esteem, or are remotely interested in England at international level, you'd be silly not to give this a watch.
4/5

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.
