5.0 out of 5 stars Really Bend It Like Beckham is really awesome! March 31, 2005
By Peter K
Format:DVD
Unlike most soccer skill and highlight programs which tend to be dry and boring, this DVD entertains as well as educates. It is truly unique and a must for anyone who wants to learn or loves soccer.

The DVD is presented on 2 discs and features over 100 minutes of Beckham going over almost every skill imaginable, from beginner skills like passing and shooting to Beckham's bending free kicks. It teaches everyone from young kids to adults how to develop top-level player skills and the bonus disc gives the audience a rare look inside the life of arguably the most famous athlete in the world.

Shot in high-definition using Matrix-like 360-degree multi-camera photography it will definitely entertain its audience, who is treated for the first time to an amazing analysis of Beckham's superior skills, both in real time and super slow motion.

He takes a group of boys and girls of varying age through the extensive soccer drills and answers questions from them on everything from football to life on and off the field with Real Madrid, Victoria (Posh Spice) and his kids.

Disc Two showcases highlights of Beckham career including his unbelievable goal from the half-way line and his last-second free kick goal that helped England qualify for the 2002 World Cup.

A special feature for both youth and adult coaches is a unique printable version of the DVD-ROM coaching plan. The DVD also includes complete Spanish and French versions of the entire program, menus as well.

David mentions in the program that making this DVD was a true labor of love for him and the finished product really reflect that.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Michael Jordan of Soccer teaches AND entertains March 23, 2005
Format:DVD
Two weeks ago when a co-worker from England overheard that I was looking for a video to help my son get better at soccer, he asked me if I wanted to teach him to "bend it like beckham"? I had to admit that I had no idea what he was talking about. Last week he brought a DVD called "Really Bend It Like Beckham" to me, and I still only thought he resembled some young actor I had seen on Entertainment Tonight. But this past weekend, my son and i sat down to watch it and were amazed. Sure, it was hard to get him to sit in one place and watch what probably sounded like a boring, one-hour coaching video, but once it began were we both enthralled. This is normally the kind of thing that I might put on, make sure he was watching, and do the crossword, but it was presented in such a fresh and fun way with cool, easy to follow technological effects, that I stuck around to watch the entire thing. It definitely renewed my son's interest in the sport (after a long spring of practices already) and even made me get excited about helping teach him (which is saying something). If nothing else, "Really Bend It Like Beckham" succeeds in entertaining while it teaches, unlike every other coaching video out there. From here on out, we (and I must admit, my wife too) are big-time Beckham fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great For Kids AND Parents April 12, 2005
Format:DVD
I got this DVD for my fiance's son, and he absolutely loved it. We watched it with him and we were entertained as much as he was. He immediately went outside and started practicing the instant he was done watching it. Almost everyday since he has been watching it and practicing. His skills and his excitement for the game have benefitted greatly from the DVD.

We have bought other instructional videos on Soccer for him and honestly we usually find something else to do while he watches them, which isnt very long usually as he gets bored and his attention goes elsewhere. But with the multiple angles and slow motion and other special effects in this DVD not only is he glued to it, we find ourselves glued to it as well.

If you are a parent of a soccer player, or know a child who plays soccer this is just an awesome gift for them. It will really help their game and keep them, and you entertained. Heck, even if you are just a Soccer fan or a fan of David Beckham, you would get a lot of value out of this DVD. The Soccer Matches that are included on disk two are a blast to watch as well.

Avoid getting the Red Card and buy this dvd now!

Format:DVD
My kids really like this DVD. They are amazed at how cool the special effects are and for some reason that encourages them to practice more. It's not even soccer season for my 10 year old but he's watching this DVD so much he really wishes it was. He's watched it 4 times just this past weekend. I may have to buy him his own DVD player just to get mine back! haha Honestly though if you have kids who play soccer they will LOVE this DVD. Makes a great gift for parents of of other children who play soccer as well. I bought one for my sisters kids and now I'm their favorite uncle.. well for the time being anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars great for parents May 23, 2005
Format:DVD
I am the mother of 2 children who play youth soccer, and they love this DVD. It's really great because often times I would wish I could play with my kids but I am clueless about soccer skills, and watching this video has allowed me to understand the sport and work with my kids on their skills. It's a wonderful product, and David Beckham is not bad on the eyes either!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for entry level players and coaches August 18, 2005
By .
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a very good DVD for entry level players and coaches. It is simple to follow and has come simple drills...I gave it a 4 because I was hoping for some more advanced features that this is lacking...as a former D1 college player and now coaching I did not take away anything new from the DVD that I did not already know or see.

I am impressed with the content and production of this dvd. Beckham really works well with the kids. Of course, the kids are already above average in skill. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining, a little short on substance.
The entertainment factor gets kids watching it - the only coaching or skills DVD they'll watch and then go out and practice the skills on their own. That's a big plus. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars No yawns here
As a s soccer coach's wife, I get to watch alot of "how to" soccer videos. This one was very interesting to watch. Then again, it is Beckham we're talking about.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money and time!
This is probably the worst soccer instructional DVD that I've ever seen (and I've watched quite a few). More time is spent on David talking about David than on instruction. Read more
