Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: One of the most unwatchable films in recent memory, a dishonest bit of corporate-suite sanitizing that's no good even for laughs.
Rotten: Comes across as a squirm-inducing heap of propaganda at its most self-congratulatory.
Rotten: Even without the cloud of the recent disturbing developments, United Passions is a cringeworthy, self-aggrandizing affair that mainly benefits from its unintentional camp value.
Rotten: The major players uniformly fail to bring their A-games.
Propaganda movie worthy of North Korea
The history of the beautiful game is sadly taken captive by an egomaniacal dictator who chose to make this self-aggrandizing with funds that should have been spent making soccer pitches in poor neighborhoods across the world. I look forward to a movie about the true story within FIFA when the whole dirty mess s finally exposed. I doubt history will be as kind to Mr. Blatter as he has chosen to be to himself in this movie. A purchase or rental of this movie supports a rotten regime which holds the world's favorite sport hostage for personal gain. I honestly wish Apple would be better than supporting the sale of this movie, the proceeds of which will surely prolong the tragic mess that is the current Fifa leadership.
As John Oliver said, who makes a sports movie where the heroes are the administrators?
It’s estimated by the international trade union confederation (ITUC) that 900 foreign workers a year will die bringing the World Cup to Qatar. That’s quite a legacy, Mr. Blatter. Maybe someone should make a movie about that with Fifa cash, instead of this garbage?
