4.0 out of 5 stars Dreams Do Come True,,, The Rocky of Soccer Nov. 14 2007
Goal! finally came out in North America. I saw this film 3 years ago in France and couldn't wait for the N.A. release here. This is truly the Rocky of soccer. Using Kuno Becker, I think was perfect for this role because he is an unknown actor, and as you start to watch the film and cant help yourself but to remember Rocky, so your anticipating to see if he makes pro. You start to root for him because of the situation he's in, that many immigrants can relate to. An illigal immigrant, no mother, works under the table, no green card, strict father who doesn't support his ideas except for his grandma. He takes a chance to leave America for England because a scout saw him play. But if he leaves America he can't return because he's illegal and has no papers. Against his father wishes he still goes and only to find out later that his father has a heart attack and dies knowing his son left for his dream. So with all the chances he gets you can't help yourself to root for Santiago Munez to make it as a pro soccer player and at the end you wish him to be a successful actor, because you become drawn to his acting appearance. You can tell that he isn't all there yet but in Goal II he also tries hard but you start to hate the character. I saw Goal II this past summer and it was very dissapointing compared to Goal I but still is a good film. If Goal I, took 3 years to reach N.A. then Goal II will be here in 2010, or get from www.amazon.fr

Goal! makes you wanna pick up the ball and kick it around. In Europe this movie was huge in Goal I he's in New Castle, in Goal II he plays with Real Madrid with all the stars Bekham. Zidane, Ronaldo etc I hope that now Toronto has a soccer team but we suck, this movie will help create more soccer fans in Toronto and hopefully the Toronto FC players watch it as well and recruit Kuno Becker to play for us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Family Movie! April 14 2007
By D. Landry TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This movie is great! Pretty much anyone in your family could see and enjoy it.

It's really nice to see less known actors in the roles. It's a fantastic mixture when you can get an actor who is well known in Romania (Marcel Iures) but relatively unknown in the rest of the world and Kuno Becker (again known in Latin America but unknown to everyone else) and put them in a British film with a U.S. actor (Alessandro Nivola) along with British actors. Really clever, nice ethnic mix and an unusual one -- less predictable than the usual casting that goes on out there -- kinda opens the pool of actors that we're currently exposed to all the time.

A lot of people are complaining about the football (soccer) aspects of the movie saying that it's not real, etc. But I think they're failing to see that the movie is not only about the sport itself but about the people who play it and some of the backstage politics that are linked with it. I thought these were shown tactfully and were just enough as they were coupled with the human factor -- the lives of the players, their loves, their hates, competitive spirit, etc.

What was good about having a Latino as a protagonist in the film is that it shows the wider scope of fans football has. It is not only popular in Europe but in Latin America as well. The film could have easily gone down the eurocentric route of making the story about a European case, but this made it a bit more unusual and interesting. Since Santiago was an illegal immigrant who obviously took the great risk to come to the United States and didn't really have much going for him here, his risk of going to England to try his luck there is completely plausible.

Really entertaining movie. The story is good. However, the actors are not that great. I have no regrets on this purchase.
