Goal! 2 PosterI would say that this movie is the paramount of all footy movies. For those who enjoyed the first part of the trilogy, Santiago Muñez’s (Kuno Becker) continuing adventure in superstardom will eventually leave fans on their edge of the seat for the third installment.

The story starts in the final days of 2005’s summer transfer market. The Newcastle rising star, Muñez, is set to follow his former team-mate, Gavin Harris (Alessandro Nivola), to join the world’s most extravagant squad of Real Madrid in a transfer swap deal for Michael Owen! And from that particular point the story just writes it self…

The mixture of the locker-room drama, personal problems, over the edge life style of international superstars and unearthing long lost family members were just the perfect ingredients for a good paced action-drama sport movie.

Although many stars in the likes of Zidane, Guti, Raul, Casillas and Ronaldo all made a somewhat significant screen time, one Galactico who get all the attention is (unsurprisingly) David Beckham, the grand daddy of movie cameos.

The cream of the crop of this movie would be the seamless integration of Muñez’s and Harris’ on-field participation with real life football matches. My jaw dropped in awe when Muñez scored a winning goal with a magnificent volley from a deflected Beckham’s corner against Rivaldo’s Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League opening match. Little that I know that it was only the tip of the ice berg…

This is one of few movies that you should see sans girlfriend.
