Goal 1 (Great!!!) - Goal 2 (Good setup for a 3rd) - Goal 3 (Is this Goal 3?)
What can I say which hasn't been already said? I was expecting this to be the HAT-TRICK; but a pile of NON-SENSE came out of the HAT.
This was supposed to be the ROCKY of soccer movies. Even low budget isn't an excuse for what I had watched.
The story is already there... Why try to invent something which has nothing to do with what GOAL is/was about? The movie started with 7-8 user rating on IMDb, which I believe were production people votes, family etc...
One of the comments which really struck me was "If you thought the movie sucked that bad...why don't you shell out the cash and make one better...if you can't afford it then keep your mouth shut..."
We do it by buying the DVD and paying for theater tickets, but please understand that we feel sad and extremely disappointed when film makers sorta pocket our money with jokes like this movie.
A similar experience I had was Rocky 5, but Sylvester Stallone was man enough to say sorry to the fans and actually accepted that the movie was bad; but than he made Rocky 6 (Rocky Balboa) which was an epic ending in my opinion.
So just like The Rocky Story was saved, Goal can be saved with a real 3rd installation. However it will require producers who love the movie as much as the fans love it. Not people trying to make a quick buck!
PS: Before submitting, I had a long coffee break and re-read my comments just in case I may have been unfair because of my fresh disappointment. Unfortunately I still stand by my words.
