Great Soccer movie
27 March 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Although the production values are not award winning the premise inspired me to excel at soccer and gave me an insight as to how to be better at anything in life. I use this movie in any sport to show the real reasons for participating in athletics. and... Billy Warlock in a wheelchair need I say more. Pele's involvement gives a unique insight into the passion in which soccer is treated in the rest of the world.His credibility adds to the flavor of Hotshot. This movie has the potential to rival great sports movies such as Hoosiers, side-out, and Rudy. I would recommend this for any sports fan, sports participant, and I hope you enjoy it !!
