The All Time Greatest Football Film Ever MadeBy a customer from Reading,England , 22 Jun 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Not a bad storyline to go along with it either. Just one small down point though. What was the director thinking when he cast Sylvester stallone as the allies Goalkeeper. With a cast of football legends making up the allies team and a fair few in the Germans why couldn't they also cast a Goalkeeping legend. Although I suppose this part did require some acting abillity something the footballers lack. Though maybe some of today players based on some performances could act aswell....

Awesome footy filmBy Korsatino (3 reviews) from London , 19 Mar 2009Set in a POW camp the Germans decide to raise morale by beating the allies in a football game, with a few twists and turns as you may expect.
Worth watching just to see the skills of Bobby Moore, Pele, Osvaldo Ardiles, Paul Van Himst, Kazimierz Deyna, Hallvar Thorensen, Mike Summerbee, Co Prins and various other talented players (including a whole host of Ipswich Town players). It also has the acting talents of Michael Caine and Sylvester Stallone.
Basically its just an easy watchable film that your whole family should enjoy.

Football,comedy Nazi's,Caine ,Pele and Moore!By Spinko (3 reviews) from Chorley , 13 May 2008If you are a football fan, a fan of war movies, and a fan of Michael Caine and Sylvester Stallone you have a treat awaiting you. The plot surrounds a group of POW's during the second world war. Michael Caine plays an ex profesional footballer who accepts a challenge to form a team from the inmates to play the cream of the werhmacht. The film eventually culminates in a brilliant match played in Paris as the Allies try and overcome the Nazi nation and escape in the process. With England knocked out of the European Finals this year this may be a good substitutefor a Saturday afternoon as you can cheer on Caine and Bobby Moore sticking it to the Nazis.
