Interesting life, terrible movie
8 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So it turns out this isn't based on the Jimmy Burns book of the same name, which must be a relief to Mr. Burns, because this movie is inept in just about every way possible.

The production quality on this movie is below par for porn, let alone a TV movie. More like a cut-rate telenovela. The script completely fails to bring Maradona to life, skipping key sections of his career. A teenage pro playing in the brutal Argentinian league? Apparently not interesting, and demoted to one of the worst time-lapse montages ever conceived. The cheese factor is off the charts throughout. Plus, as an added disappointment, the DVD isn't widescreen-enhanced.

One of the worst movies I've ever rented, and I tolerate lot a of bad soccer movies.
