As rotten as film gets
11 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

After reading scathing reviews in the papers on a flight to Sofia I turned on my hotel TV to find Bulgaria's national TV station BNT showing this film that very same night. Not only that they repeated it the following evening! I don't know what the people of Bulgaria ever did to deserve such punishment but clearly BNT is part of the whole FIFA corruption circus to be giving this cinematic dreck airtime. But it at least gave me the chance to see this turkey without handing over any cash. Tim Roth and Sam Neil, you've made yourselves look like cheap whores and if your careers never recover, it'll be well deserved for taking the FIFA/Blatter thirty pieces of silver. As for Depardieu, he was a joke already. An absolute stinker of a film and a suitably corrupt epitaph for Blatter and his money grabbing cronies.
