Hattrick - External Reviews

wogma rating: Switch channels if it's on cable (?)
quick review:

With hardly any relevance to cricket the story is very general. The actors do the best they can with the lame dialogues given to them. The music is loud and pretty much unpleasant (except the promo song).
