After 22 years of playing for the world's greatest football teams, David Beckham has retired and he has the freedom to do whatever he wants. To mark the occasion he's going on an adventure. He's chosen Brazil, and he's taking 3 of his closest friends to join him on this once in a lifetime experience. Starting with a beach foot-volleyball game in Rio, they travel deep into the Amazon, ending up with the remote Yanonami tribe, with David desperately trying to explain the beautiful game.

Adventure Holiday for the super rich
5 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

David Beckham and three friends use bikes, cars, planes and boats to traverse a section of the Amazon and visit a native tribe. There is enough here to keep you interested but it doesn't live up to the heights of other adventure travel documentaries. It plays out like a super expensive version of a package adventure holiday.

Beckham proves himself to be a genuinely nice, family focused man, albeit a little dull and vane with regards appearance. His oldest and best friend is among the mates he brings along and he adopts an almost Karl Pilkington attitude to the whole trip, spending most of his camera time moaning about one thing or another. It doesn't really give the impression he appreciates this once in a lifetime trip that he's been taken on. Beckham also talks a lot about not being able to go anywhere without being recognised, I doubt it helps when you're being followed around by a camera crew.

At one stage they have some bike trouble and this is made into a big deal when it appears as though the chain has just slipped off, at worst it's snapped. Hardly trip ending fare, one of his friends is supposed to be a mechanic and I'm sure the support vehicles have spares up to their eyeballs.

A member of his production team seems to be in charge of health and safety on the trip and is quite strict regarding certain elements of the trip but has no trouble with them riding around in t-shirts on highways in the rain...

Overall I would say if you're interested in watching it please feel free but don't go into it expecting the heights of Long Way Round or the charisma either.
