Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This documentary series offers an interesting look at the lives of some of European football's most promising young players. From daily practices and national-level matches to representing their homelands at the Olympics and the World Cup, it offers sports fans the chance to get to know more about each of the profiled players. Players also offer some of their insights about what the sport means to them and the challenges they must overcome to play it.

Soccer fans will enjoy what is featured here, which ranges from interviews with players to video footage of past matches. The interactions between the players and young fans are also fun to watch. But not every personal narrative featured here is about success. Nonetheless, Phenoms successfully highlights the passion each of these players has for the sport and the talent they have to play it.
