Goal (12A)

A FILM about football is what it says on the tin and that s exactly what you get. A story-line full of holes – Santiago (the main character) goes from kicking a ball about in his local park to striding out for the Newcastle first team in a matter of weeks

A FILM about football is what it says on the tin and that's exactly what you get. A story-line full of holes - Santiago (the main character) goes from kicking a ball about in his local park to striding out for the Newcastle first team in a matter of weeks?

It's one big footballing cliché from start to finish, but hey, if you love the beautiful game, this film has some touching moments, and you get to see a few familiar faces. The football action is seamless and whacky Geordie humour flows like a pint of Newcastle brown ale.

Look out for David Beckham's cameo - unintentionally hilarious!
