Ronaldo Movie Review: Film ‘Could’ve Been Better’ Says Critics, But Paints A Good Picture Of The World Of Football

By on

The premiere of a film based on football sensation Christiano Ronaldo was held recently in London. And many celebrities came in to watch the film. Alex Ferguson, Carlo Ancelotti, and Gary Neville, who later hosted a Q&A session, walked the red carpet. Also in attendance were a number of popular British TV and radio personalities.

It was but natural that Ronaldo would be asked about FIFA at the event. Talking about the same he said, ?I am not afraid of nothing … I answer what I think. ‘Of course I’m not going to speak about that because when Cristiano says something it’s creates like a huge thing,” Ronaldo said, referring to himself in the third person. ”I’m not going to be involved in these kinds of problems.?

According to Fox Sports?when he was further probed about why players are seen afraid of speaking out on the state of FIFA, Ronaldo said, ”What do you expect me to say? I’m so happy? Of course I’m a little bit sad because of yesterday,” he said, referring not to FIFA but Real Madrid’s first loss of the season. ”I don’t want to (think about) yesterday on this day because it’s such a special day for me. It is one of the most important days in my life.”

Also seen at the premiere was Mourinho who was banned from attending Chelsea’s Premier League loss to Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday, was invited to Leicester Square for the first screening of the documentary charting a year in the life of the Real Madrid ace, despite reports that the pair’s relationship became strained during Mourinho’s time in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu, reported Goal.

And as far as the movie is concerned, reviews state that the movie could have been much better than this. More than a documentary the film comes across as an advertisement, especially if it?s coming from a producer who has made films like Amy and Senna. SB Nation?states that the story focuses on a footballer who worked hard and believed, and who through that hard work and belief achieved everything he ever wanted to achieve. But this film skates lightly over anything too idiosyncratic and at all points chooses the simpler path, eventually coming to rest as a 90-minute advertorial for the star.
