Film and DVD Review: Goal 3
Goal 3 Review
From the makers of GOAL and GOAL 2 comes the newest installment of this fast-paced, football based, action packed trilogy. With the World Cup as its exciting setting, this is the story of two players, Liam Adams (J.J Fields) and his best friend and Real Madrid teammate Charlie Braithwaite (Leo Gregory).
Their journey playing for England thrusts them into the greatest football tournament in the world, and is filled with romance, humor and tragedy. Liam's world is turned upside down by an unlikely reunion just as he's about to reach the peak of his professional career. This is also a 'coming of age' story for Liam who finally faces up to his responsibilities on and off the field of play.

Was Goal 3 good?
However these are my thoughts; What an utter f**k-up of a movie, the Goal trilogy is about the story of Sanitago Munez, a Mexican kid from the streets of LA who makes good and the first two installments are, and you'd be forgiven to think that the next step would be a final conclusion to the Munez story; at the world cup... but no.
Goal 3 isn't even about Santiago Munez, he barely features he is pitted against his old Real-Madrid (whom he never played against) and is forgotten about 20 minutes into the movie. The story is about two fictitious England players that have not even had a mention in the story thus far, it is a cheap spin off of Goal rather than the concluding part of the Munez story.
You don’t find out about his unborn son or the ending to his football career no Anna Friel, no "Gavin Harris", just cliché after cliché, just a huge disappointment to those that enjoyed the first two installments of this football tale.
What more can I say? Get this film just to watch to complete the series but don’t buy it to expect to find out what happens to Munez…just make those conclusions for yourself.
