Show #122: The Unbeatables (2013)

It's a game of two halves, or indeed thirds, quarters or fifths in the football fumble that is The Unbeatables, AKA Underdogs, AAKA Metegol!

A sports story about a rag tag bunch of misfits with nothing to lose and everything to gain? A young man finding what he truly values in life through courage and sacrifice? A foosball table team comes to life and have zany adventures barely relating to the game? The Unbeatables is all those things but not in the ratios you'd expect, as for a film selling itself on the prospect of high stakes foosball to save the village you get very little of that and a whole lot of other inconsequential fluff. A wealth of ideas can be great, but to use a sports analogy we need one cohesive functioning team and not a bunch of glory-hounding superstars.
