The trajectory of the film is as predictable as that of Georgie's best free kicks, but director David Scheinmann recreates the Eighties in exemplary fashion and tells the boy's story with heart and humour.

Sweet while it lasts but fleeting in memory.

The attempt to evoke the trauma of the Munich air disaster is rendered wholly insupportable by the trifling hooey around it.

Believe has its heart in the right place and it's nice to see a homely British film about family life. A bit like watching your own team, you'll feel yourself cheering it on regardless of how badly it is playing at any given time.

Whether wondering why he survived the 1958 Munich air disaster or bantering with Georgie and team-mates, who have no idea who he is, Cox is a delight.

The trouble with Believe is that, unless you are ten years old or under, which I'm assuming you are not, you won't believe. Not for a second. Not for a minute. Not a word of it.
