UNITED PASSIONS (Theatrical Release USA 2014)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

United Passions—confusing movie that does not seem to have an established focus—has little to no character development, no continuity, and no purpose in its presentation. If the writers had established more background, the audience could have left the film with higher appreciation of FIFA’s (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) value to football. An audience expects more from Sam Neill than he delivers and comes away surprised at how Tim Roth, at times, seems to ‘take the bull by the horns’ in his assigned lines.

Storyline

The movie follows the professional lives of three presidents of the International Football Association.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. This movie works for a niche market, a limited audience.
