User Review

6th February 1958 shouldn't be forgotten

Rating: 10/10

I've only just finished watching this film based on the Munich air disaster and how Manchester United cope's with the loss of their players and friends. Now I've never written one of these reviews before and with all honestly it'll probably be my last, but I thought the BBC did such a good job with the entirety of this film that it deserves someone whether they read it or not to give some feedback. I'm not a Manchester United fan but I do love football - not soccer - Football! And I am a fan of well written and directed films and this has an abundance of both. I'm not going to write of the details of the film basically because you should all know your history and I don't want to spoil a perfectly good film. All I can say is David Tennant once again like every performance he gives is outstanding, alongside with Dougray Scott and a young Jack O'Connell whom plays Sir Bobby Charlton (clearly before he receives his knighthood). You don't need to like Football to enjoy this film, you just need to enjoy good films...
