An Older Story --- Revisited
4 October 2004 | by See all my reviews

I never saw any previews for this movie but I noticed it was playing in a local theatre, so I decided to check it out since I like foreign movies.

"Atletico San Pedro" turned out to be quite an enjoyable movie, even though it eventually made me think it was just a Mexican rendition of the American movie "The Big Green" (from 1995).

It's basically the same story about a rag-tag bunch of misfits forming a soccer (known as football to the rest of the world) team and going from the worst team in the league to winning the championship. It's just in a different setting with different people.

It seems "The Bad News Bears" series ("The Bad News Bears" from 1976; "The Bad News Bears In Breaking Training" from 1977; and "The Bad News Bears Go To Japan" from 1978) started this trend of stories.

Later own, "The Mighty Ducks" series became a big hit and furthered the trend ("The Mighty Ducks" from 1992; "D2: The Mighty Ducks" from 1994; and D3: The Mighty Ducks" from 1996; as well as the soon to be released "The Mighty Ducks 4", due out in 2005).

A nice little flick called "Little Giants" came out in 1994, followed by "The Big Green" in 1995.

So, I guess as long as this same story format can continue to find an audience, these movies will continue to be made.
