Movie Review – Next Goal Wins

Read Time:1 Minute, 15 Second


It’s the worst sports movie I’ve ever seen. The movie didn’t take the subject matter seriously. Taika Waititi admitted in the movie trailer that he know nothing about football. I’m guessing he doesn’t know anything about sports in general. The movie kind of feels like what you’d get from a sports movie if it’s written and directed by someone who’s not an avid sports fan.

Michael Fassbender was completely wasted in this movie. He was fine, but this movie is beneath him. Not to mention Elisabeth Moss. What on earth was she doing in this movie. She’s a talented actress and much better than the bit role she has in this movie.

There’s a documentary about the events in this story. I wish I had watched that instead.

    Well, I’ve just got back from mystery advance screening and guess what it was…Next Goal Wins! It doesn’t come out until Boxing Day here. I must admit that my heart sank when I saw what it was because Dan was so harsh about it.

    Ah well, we’d been for a nice meal and the tickets were paid for so we might as well sit through it. And, to be honest, we both enjoyed it! In my opinion it was amusing and up-lifting. Now I have to confess that I can’t say anything about its pedigree as a sport film because I’m not a sport fan in general or a football fan in particular. Maybe that was why I enjoyed it.

    I couldn’t help but see comparisons to Cool Runnings…disgraced coach brought in to turn around the fortunes of the underdog sports team and everyone feels all warm and fuzzy at the end. I’d have graded it as a B/B+ but I know nothing about sport!
