Diego Maradona Movie Review

How many more times must we see the goals of Diego Maradona against England in the 1986 World Cup??? (one of them with the hand we must remember). The supposed great Maradona, who never won the Cup of Europe (now called Champions League) but he did consume plenty of cocaine during his famous football career nonetheless.

There are some scenes in this movie that are abhorrent. Many of them are private from celebrations for instance that should have never been broadcasted. The aim of the filmmaker is to put the focus on the sleazy moments of the life of Diego Armando Maradona forgetting the rest.

The incredible thing is this filmmaker made a superb movie about the fall of British singer Amy Winehouse, but he has done something that is horrible to watch on this occasion. The director only wants to show the sordid, the low moments of Diego Maradona.

Maradona has always been an icon but his movie obtains the contrary it wants and I really think the footballer should have never collaborated with this failed project.


What do you think?

  1. Maradona is probably so broke that he had to take whatever money he was going to obtain from this movie. I don’t need to see this movie because I already know about his career with Argentina and Napoli. I also know about all of the parties and drug use as well. He’s so desperate for money that he is coaching at the lower levels in Argentina.
