Mark Whalberg is surprisingly good, delivering a likeness to the real Vince Papale that is uncanny.

It may seem that Invincible takes too long to get to the football. But by the time it does get down to it, we've invested enough in Wahlberg and Kinnear to give a damn about the outcome of the all-important Big Game.

Invincible is the story of Vince Papale, who was an actual figure -- a part-time bartender who went to a tryout, survived training camp, made the Eagles team, and became a Philadelphia legend.

ricson (who doubles as cinematographer) has a good feel for urban grit and blue-collar dreams, and he gets good, unpretentious performances-especially from Wahlberg, who provides the movie's solid, dependable center.

DVD Review

Though familiar and cliched, Invincible succeeds in spite of itself because it is so technically well done and full of heart.

Mating calls aside, the paint-by-numbers sports side of this picture is only likely to capture the imagination of kids under the age of ten.

There's a sugar coating to the way Papale's story unfolds, but not so much that you'll spoil your dinner.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

This 'chump-to-champ' story adheres to the 'Three R' formula: Part 'Rudy,' part 'Rocky,' with a dash of 'The Rookie' tossed in for good measure.

If Vince Papale was the heart and soul of Philadelphia during the mid-1970s, Wahlberg brings those same qualities to "Invincible," a movie served considerably by them.

Out of work schoolteacher and part-time bartender, Philadelphia Eagles football fan Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg) had nothing to lose when new coach Dick Vermeil (Greg Kinnear) held an open tryout. With sheer determination and stamina, Papale made the team

The formula is predictable but the film deserves props for making a momentary fan out of someone who wouldn't be caught dead watching Monday Night Football

A little "Rocky," a little "Rookie," and all heart, "Invincible" is a good-natured sports movie that's as uplifting as it looks.

The adverts for Invincible tout its inspirational nature and rags-to-riches story. These claims, though, are well founded and done with craftsmanship.
