Lame star vehicle that was hard to believe was from the great John Huston. This and 'Phobia' seemed like the end of an amazing career then he surprised us with 'Under the Volcano' and 'Prizzi's Honor' thank god. 'Victory' if anything just seems to trivialize the war and becomes less and less logical/believable as it goes along. Perormances are uniformily awful and film failed in makng Pele a movie star. The pits.
Another curiosity in John Huston's filmography. The screenplay is very thin if we put aside the soccer theme. So let's focus on the performances of Pelé and his comrades who are, let's say it once and for all, soccer stars and NOT football players (you know, this American game featuring men in shorts fighting for a ball). A DVD strictly reserved to soccer fans or John Huston completists.
