Does anybody know why no good movies about football have been produced. I mean Goal 1 was decent, but i feel they could have made the match scenes abit more exciting. If they can make a sport like baseball entertaining in movies, im sure they shouldnt have a problem with football. And does anyone agree with me Goal 3 was really poor. Especially the match scenes.

I am currently making a movie about football, its called Kick **** :) nah kidding...

Goal was ****, the 1st one was decent, seeing this guy with skills being scouted, all of our dreams here :) so we connected with it, then it got really **** really quickly!

they need to find some kid who can actually play footie (that guy from Goal could not technically kick the ball correctly, he looked like my GF trying to kick a ball) and start it out from a kid to being scouted, training, trials etc and make like a trilogy (or even 5) of them...

but it needs to be done properly though and the match scenes need to be real, scripted, but real! not superimposed with Becks n ****!

This isn't related to FM. Moved.

Also, 'good' is an opinion, but I agree there aren't many. However, The Damned United was pretty decent.

GOAL 1 and 2 was great, shame about GOAL 3 :/
Goal 1, 2, 3 are woeful.

See:

Flucht oder Sieg (1981) - IMDb

:D
is it english?

Clearly you've never watched Escape to Victory.

EDIT---

Beat to it by Redders.

Damned United is decent although football is discussed, very little footage of games.

Escape to victory is also good but not exactly accurate.

Agree with others about goal, shocking film but Anna Friel <3

***** - but its worth watching just to see Jason Statham batter someone at the end with a great two footer.

Goal 1 was great but the next two sucked quite majorly, I might have to check out the suggested few, love a good Football Film :)

Unless its a documentry then its hard to act football scenes for me.
really disagree. With the right background music and camera angles, you can really create something intense. Well imo

Probably because footballs on every weekend so why make a movie when you can watch it regularly anyway?

they show american football every weekend in the US, yet theyve made some brilliant movies about it.
