Movie Reviews

  • some sports documentaries get lost in the emotion, but film-makers David Tryhorn and Ben Nicholas keep their heads with a rousing but also thoughtful portrait of a genuine football legend
    4 of 5 by Andy Lea [Daily Star (UK) ]
  • it's Pele's humanity and humility which makes him the true king of the beautiful game; We also see how negativity about this superstar did, for a while.. But when you see Pele playing with a smile on his face, it lifts your spirits
    3 of 5 by Dulcie Pearce [The Sun (UK) ]
  • absorbing yet overly deferential documentary about the titular sporting icon
    3 of 5 by Emma Simmonds [The List Film (UK) ]
  • a worthy if unexceptional homage to the King; directors David Tryhorn and Ben Nichols do a good job chronicling the push-and-pull between sports and politics
    by Jordan Mintzer [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • "Pele" is frank and open-minded in its approach to the life and career of the legendary footballer, questioning not just his success on the pitch but also his infidelity.. and how he is inextricably tied to Brazil’s national identity
    3.5 of 5 by Jonathan Wilson [Ready Steady Cut ]
  • "Pele" is a terrific examination of the player, the man and his status in recent Brazilian history; The film is an admiring portrait in many ways
    by John Doyle [Globe and Mail ]
