The Class of 92, a cinematic documentary detailing the rise to prominence and global sporting superstardom of six supremely talented young Manchester United footballers (David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Phil and Gary Neville). The film covers the period 1992-1999, culminating in Manchester United's European Cup triumph, and will dramatically interweave and mirror the highs and lows of its football odyssey with the immense social and cultural changes taking place in Britain at the time.Written by
Phil Neville, billed as a member of the Class of '92, was not part of that famed youth side. He was actually a member of the Class of '93, when Manchester United lost the FA Youth Cup final to Leeds United. Phil Neville did however skipper United to Youth Cup glory in 1995, however he has received criticism for appearing to pose as a member of the Class of '92. See more »
Football documentary following the fortunes of six Manchester United players and how they became legends at the club.
I'm not a Manchester United fan but this is an enjoyable and well put together film that shows the camaraderie and passion these young men had as they became global names within the game.
There is a lack of footage at times and I would have preferred to know more like when Beckham left for Real Madrid and the dynamics within the dressing with new players arriving but the six players come across well and have some entertaining and interesting anecdotes especially about "that night in Barcelona".
The inclusion of Clive Tyldesley adding commentary to a few clips wasn't necessary and neither is Tony Blair's input but Danny Boyle and Mani give good accounts.
