Too Much Missing!!! ... Too bad, could have been great!
9 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My "credentials": Argentine and also met Diego and Claudia and the team in Boston in 1994... This movie MISSED: The whole episode in 1990 with Diego trying to turn Naples against Italy. Talking about his love for el CheGuevara. Diego's friendship with Castro. The 2 goals vs England in 1986 totally screwed up with some bad photoshop quality effects showing the actor as a child and as an adult in the middle of these two goals which are totally impressive and Unforgettable on their own right. And the significance of this game only a couple of years after the Falklands is totally ignored. His relationship with Menem. His love for Boca where he eventually plays... The movie was an overly sentimental cliché about how good he was and his devotion to his daughters, parents, Argentina and sometimes Claudia and his self destructive issues which are never really explained. We constantly see Diego have nightmares about drowning and it all plays like a bad sixties movie about a Rock star going bad. ... There was/is so much material for his life but the movie stayed very bi-dimensional and repetitive. Also, the LIGHT was horrible... did their budget run short? ... I did like the beginning because it had a good reflection and ambiance of what Buenos Aires was like around 1960... ... Even the "Hand of God" title was misused: Diego mentioned a long time AFTER the episode, yet they make it sound like he used that term right after... He denied the hand ball for a long time... ... Go Messi!!! Claudio
