  • Pelé is better than the movie by 4

    Another documentary trying to manipulate the public , talking about politic. Journalists and even a former President talking all the time about dictatorship! How many times this word was repeatedly told. What was about the documentary? I give a 4

  • A just recognition by 10

    Of the King of football. unfortunately it only brushed over the darkest period in Brazilian modern history with the ultra right military regime and the torture and death camps it engendered. A similar period of darkness that the country, is experiencing now, but this time without the saving grace to the regime with a pedestrian Selecao

  • Just another bad movie from Netflix by 2

    Netflix joined the most radical left-wing sports journalists in Brazil and took advantage of Pelé's beautiful trajectory to make yet another piece of ideological advertising, as usual. During the documentary, few details about the king's life, little football and a lot of space for left-wing politicians, artists and journalists to parade his ideology. Poor Pelé. It was not yet this time that they made a film to match the genius. That was one of the worst.

  • Copy of the Maradona documentary by 6

    I enjoyed this documentary but would've appreciated if they tried their own formula. I couldn't help but to think through each scene that "wow.. That's pretty much a copy of the score, how the music settles down, imagery of that scene from Maradona documentary" and then the next scene comes and the same feeling.

    As a football aficionado I enjoyed this, but it doesn't pack the same punch/force like the Maradona documentary.

  • The king by 10

    This is a brilliant movie and brilliant documentary. Loved every single of it . Pele is the king of football all the time and one of the best player ever in the history and in the world forever. There will never be a player like him and a legend like him and for his achievement. GOAT .
