6th February 1958 shouldn't be forgotten

Rating: 10/10

I've only just finished watching this film based on the Munich air
disaster and how Manchester United cope's with the loss of their
players and friends. Now I've never written one of these reviews before
and with all honestly it'll probably be my last, but I thought the BBC
did such a good job with the entirety of this film that it deserves
someone whether they read it or not to give some feedback. I'm not a
Manchester United fan but I do love football – not soccer – Football!
And I am a fan of well written and directed films and this has an
abundance of both. I'm not going to write of the details of the film
basically because you should all know your history and I don't want to
spoil a perfectly good film. All I can say is David Tennant once again
like every performance he gives is outstanding, alongside with Dougray
Scott and a young Jack O'Connell whom plays Sir Bobby Charlton (clearly
before he receives his knighthood). You don't need to like Football to
enjoy this film, you just need to enjoy good films…
