A post-World Cup footy-themed treat, this is an ambitious 3D ’toon from writer/director Juan José Campanella (
The Secret In Their Eyes
) with Brit actors voicing characters for the UK release. Its David versus Goliath story focuses on shy teenager Amadeo (Rupert Grint), who with the assistance of his table-football players has to save his town from egomaniacal superstar Flash (Anthony Head).
Impressively designed throughout, The Unbeatables also keeps the laughs kicking, both in its characterisations and its nods to the likes of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Citizen Kane .
