Goal II: Living the Dream review
Review of Goal II: Living the Dream
This was a wonderful movie made for moderate football (soccer)fans. Raul, Casillas, Zidane, Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos, Beckham, Guti, Salgado...even Florentino himself made his appearance. I just cant imagine how they convinced them all to make this movie. They FAR outshine the story line, but that could just be because I'm a Real Madrid fan. There were only two things that were a bit off putting for me. One, of course, was the conflict the reality vs. movie that anyone might experience if they've grown up watching every Real Madrid game and idolizing Iker and Raul (like I did). The second is the laughable face off between Casillas and (I cant believe I'm even writing this one with a straight face) Nick Cannon...wow. Lost a couple stars for that and for the horrible way that they begin the movie. I almost didnt make it through the first Real vs. Barca scenes. Painful.
