They should have stayed with just the first 2 and Kuno Becker should have stayed with no hair, he looks hideous lol. Still a good movie for soccer fans, more story in this one than soccer action.
Mexican football star Santiago Munez (Kuno Becker) is pitted against his Real Madrid team-mates and England players Charlie Braithwaite (Leo Gregory) and Liam Adams (JJ Feild) in a quest to lift footballs ultimate prize: the FIFA World Cup. Santi is motivated to try and win the trophy for his late father and family back in Los Angeles and Madrid, whilst Charlie and Liam just want to try and end the Three Lions 40 years of pain. For all three charismatic footballers, the path to football glory is one fraught with temptations and torments - and all three have to deal with personal issues off the pitch that affects their roles on it. Triumph and tragedy sit side by side in equal measure on this journey as the players compete on the field of dreams to achieve their ultimate dream to score the winning goal in the World Cup final and lift the cup in victory to the delight of a whole nation of fans.
After enjoying the first two Goal! films the third one is absolutely atrocious, it has nothing to do with the first two films and is the classic case of continuing a trilogy by ruining the first two movies and making sure none of the actors from the first two return.
The main character from the series has been reduce to an extra and it features some frankly terrible green screen effects. Here's hoping Goal! IV is better as this is terrible. An utter disappointment.
The final instalment whereby the kid who we saw come up through the ranks now gets injured and takes a back seat. England crash out of the World Cup on penalties, one of the players dies, and there's even some fetish vampires and midgets, for the kids.
