You need multi-region PAL/NTSC DVD player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: German ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), German ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), ANAMORPHIC WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Anamorphic Widescreen, Cast/Crew Interview(s), Commentary, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Goal! 3: Taking On The World is the third part of the football film trilogy Goal! and is directed by legendary music video Director (Andy Morahan). Taking place during the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, it sees Mexican footballer Santiago Munez (Kuno Becker) pitted against his Real Madrid team-mates and England players Charlie Braithwaite (Leo Gregory) and Liam Adams (JJ Feild) in a mutual quest to lift sport's ultimate prize. Also starring are (Nick Moran) and (Tamer Hassan). Santi is motivated to try and win the trophy for his late father and family back in Los Angeles and Madrid. Meanwhile, Charile and Liam just want to try and end the Three Lions' '40 years of pain'. For all three charismatic footballers, the path to potential success is one fraught with temptations and torments - and all three have to deal with personal issues off the pitch that affects their roles on it. Gracing the screen with a splash of glamour are two beautiful WAG'S: Italian actress Sophia Tardelli (Kasia Smutniak) and one of our heroes' ex-girlfriends, June (Anya Lahiri). Also following the tournament around Germany in their St George's Cross festooned camper van are the 'Geordie Boys', whom we first met back in Goal!. Providing the often hilarious fan's perspective of the matches are Gordon (Mike Elliott), Foghorn (Christopher Fairbank), Walter (Jack McBride) and Phil (Craig Heaney). The film includes incredible football ...Goal III: Taking on the World ( Goal 3 - Das Finale ) ( Goal! 3: Taking on the World )

Customer Reviews

In short, this is just terrible, a waste of your time.

It doesn't have to do anything with the saga or follows Santiago's history.

This movie did not play in my DVD player or my son-in-law's Playstation 3.

To say I am disappointed is an understatement. "The Goal! III" is shockingly bad. The third chapter of Santiago Munez's life story suffers from cheap visuals and obvious corner cutting, but that is not the worst part. Santiago, the protagonist for whom the first two "Goal!" movies were made, is hardly in the story! Not only that. This time around there is no Alessandro Nivola, no Stephen Dillane and no Anna Friel. So why was this film made?

I don't know why, but Kuno Becker's Santiago is sidelined throughout much of the film. The second sequel of "The Goal" is mainly about two new characters that came out of nowhere: Liam Adams (JJ Feild) and Charlie Braithwaite (Leo Gregory). They are English football players selected for the national team. They are best friends of Santiago. The three players are all going to be in 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany when something happens to them. Something that is not very exciting.

As a drama I was not impressed with the first "Goal!" films, but their football game sequences are impressive with actors and real-life footballers sharing scenes seamlessly. However, for "Goal! III" the filmmakers decided on using stock World Cup footage and they don't even bother to hide it. The patched-up scenes of prestigious World Cup games are terribly edited, and the sad thing is, this cheaply made sequence is the only "football" part you can get.

The rest of the film is about Charlie making a debut as an actor in a cheesy movie and falling in love with a beautiful woman. Also, there are some forgettable episodes about football fans doing some silly things. You can make a long list of things that are wrong with the film. In short, this is just terrible, a waste of your time.

Bought this for my son who adored the first two films. He wanted to switch it off mid way through because it was so bad. Not just that, but for a film that is categorised as suitable for 12 year-olds, I was shocked at some of the scenes that were certainly not suitable for any 12 year old. This film is a mix of mild porn, world cup footage, and a totally new story line that almost totally ignores the hero of the first two films. Dont go near it

I really just don't understand it. The Goal movies preceeding this one were in my opinion incredible. Great stories shot in good quality. This movie however I would qualify as an abortion. It is just horrible. I don't understand how Kuno Becker, who was at one time considered to be following in the footsteps of Mexican actor Gael Garcia, could possibly agree to act in this atrocity.

I cant believe it, what happened to the story line!!!!! Big disappointment.
The whole movie is a waste of time. Really bad visuals, Santi is not the main character in other words the movies is not about him anymore.

Goal 4 needs to be done. Go back and pick up where the #2 left off and please do not include sex scenes. Concentrate on the soccer career.

OMG!! there was actually a budget for this film?! the producers and directors did an absolute poor job on this film. not only is the storyline garbage, but the production of this film is very bad. 95% of the football scenes are clips from the 2006 world cup. are you serious??! this is absolutely horrible movie. i cannot belive becker agreed to act in this film. if i were a film director, i would make goal 4 and continue where 2 left off! becker seems like a moderate actor that deserves a better film than this crap!!!

I was very dissapointed. This movie didn't tie in with the other ones at all. What happened with
the girlfriend. What happened with his family and friends. It was Written badly and filmed even worse. I hope they make another one more in line with the first two.

It was horrible! They didn't use the cast members in the first 2 movies & the main character, Santiago, didn't even play soccer. To top it off we had to play it on the computer due to country format unlike the first 2!!! HORRIBLE!

Terrible. Totally ruins the saga. Bad plot, bad story lines intertwined. No mention of Roz and Santiago. No connection to the 1st two. HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.
