Good though bit like a soap opera
What makes football great is that it is a game of opinions. It is obvious from reading some of the postings on here that some people have judged the film on whether or not they like David Beckham. Yes, he does appear in the film, but then so do a lot of the other players. Like it or not David Beckham is one of the most bankable stars in football, so it inevitable. Lets face it anyone from Arsenal (as one of the postings is from) is not going to be a Beckham fan. Anyway, as for the film, I think the makers of the film are so intent on steering the film away from the predictability of most sports films, ie player/team starts off badly, then ends up winning an hour and a half later (well you all know what happens) that it leaves out any real moments of drama or tension. What we have left is a bit of footballers soap opera. Saying that though, I thought it was good entertainment.
It looks like the franchise has been ruined already…
Compared to the first film, this one is not good at all.
I like the fact that the women are hotter – they’re in Madrid, so that’s probably going to be true to life. However, the fact that we’re supposed to feel sorry for the protagonist now that he’s being given everything he always wanted does not make sense. Sure, in the first film he’s got nothing, and he has to work hard for every scrap, but in Goal II, the character becomes an insufferable, spoilt child, and this instantly forgives the audience for disliking him. If this is an attempt by the director to make Santiago appear ungrateful, it works, but it certainly detracts from the character most people got to know and love from the first film.
There is very little storyline in this film, so the writers added the “search for mother” to bolster the touchy-feely side of the film. This made some parts of the film what I would term “fast-forward-able” and unnecessary.
Adding Beckham to the mix doesn’t work, other than to draw Beckham fans into the cinema to watch it. He adds no depth to the film, and is just there to make Beckham fans happy. He can’t act, and gives nothing in the way of storyline. He simply gives credibility to the film, as he was a Real Madrid player at the time the film was made.
Overall, this is not a shocking sequel, but it certainly detracts from the charms of the original film. Worth watching once, but not twice.
