This is a poorly conceived satire on the inner machinations of the overbloated European football industry, where the players are more celebrities than athletes, and the teams are more corporate than community-based.
There are a few entertaining moments, and some of the characters work well as parodies. However, the character of Manu appears to be completely pointless and more than a little irritating. Take him out the equation and 3 Zeros would be a far more enjoyable film. He just gets in the way of Colonna's against-the-odds/revenge storyline.
I do think this film was more a devious marketing ploy than a fully-fledged cinematic production. In saying that, 3 Zeros isn't entirely unbearable. Yes, as an objet d'art, it is bland and pisspoor, but as a snackette of light entertainment it's not too bad.
