This film doesn't deserve a full review. Though not as bad as many are saying, this is not good by any means. I give it a four, but a 3.5 might be closer. The first half is a lot of sentimental fluff which tries to make a mediocre script passable. Most of the accents are almost impossible to understand, the rest are just fake. I think it would have gotten more attention if all of the dialog were in whatever language they truly were spoken in and subtitled everything. The second half is strait-up propaganda extolling the virtue of Sepp Blatter. Seeing as he pretty much payed for this, I can't fault him for trying. I also understand why it made only $600 at theaters. Believe what you will. I just kept rolling my eyes.

Believe what you will. I just kept rolling my eyes.Reviewed bytiaildsVote: 7/10
For over a century movies have been fascinated with nefarious enterprises. The Mafia movies - which at the time seemed a long commercial bet - proved that audiences really liked to watch the internal workings of an organization, from how it generated its revenue through to how it dealt with opponents and new business rivals.
In a sense "United Passions" is like that: not quite "Donnie Brasco", or "Godfather II" true, but the drama and excitement of making uniform rules and regulations for playing football, or the power plays at board meetings and facing down political oppression n Europe, not to say the daring of Blatter offering sponsorships deals all makes for some pretty heady cinema.
That's not to say that its all good. It really isn't. The historical evolution of FIFA is related like a child's essay and that leads to a collective groan, much as any teacher faced with such mediocre aspirations would do as well. The script tends to platitudes and an overbearing pomposity. A film that has a barely concealed sneer at the English is paradoxically in English. As spoken by some actors it is obvious they are not fully comfortable with its stress patterns and cadences.
At times it teases with audience expectations as when Blatter holds a roadside rendezvous with another official and they discuss the implications of the Russian-US enmity in the late 1970s. It's scene we've all seen often enough: just as Fredo is dealt with by Michael in the boathouse, and usually presages a hit on an unsuspecting person. None, however occurs.
The flirtation with the worst instances of the Bond movie canon lead nowhere, of course, because this is a vanity corporate movie, full of sound and bureaucratic business cant, and naturally, signifying nothing.
There are several other people out there calling it a masterpiece. It's not. Many other sports films like Creed and Rocky Balboa are examples of masterpieces.
Something's very wrong here.
Don't fall into the bait people. This movie is terrible. Positive reviews are from fake profiles. This movie is an utter pile of lies from a fraudulent French company which does not look into history and even they're lacking total lore in United Passions. This doesn't even deserve to win a single Oscar award. Why would it win any? Such a stupid idea one reviewer on this movie on Metacritic said. Poor quality of the drama and the script looks like it was written by an unprofessional script writer.
Plotholes, yes they are there. Watch out
Unnecessary blushed romance? What? Really?
As a fan of football, I can surely tell that I am so disappointed with this work. Do not be swayed by positive criticism. They are just leading you to a dangerous end. Just a box office bomb just for the laughsUnited Passions: A Football Story of Lies, Unread History and Lore. I can tell you now that it SUCKS. Ignore the spammers of the love button.
