INVINCIBLE should prove invincible at the box office. With football season around the corner this is the perfect pre-season game. Touchdown!!
January 1, 2011
Inspiring sports-underdog story for tweens and up.
July 6, 2010
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.

I wonder how many more of these inspirational sports films we have to sit through in 2006.

Screenwriter Brad Gann shares the guilt for this predictable cinematic travesty along with composer Mark Isham whose bombastic musical score is akin to hammering a nail with a shotgun blast.

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.
July 14, 2007
The script by newcomer Brad Gann hits all the right notes.
July 10, 2007
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.

As far as sports films go, Invincible doesn't offer anything original or notable ... except Mark Wahlberg's performance.
February 1, 2007
...Greg Kinnear is particularly engaging as Papale's coach...

Invincible is a Walter Mitty tale, but a true one, a fantasy come to life.
December 30, 2006
[A] solid, but predictable underdog sports story.
September 28, 2006
A film lacking Herzog's USP -- an ironic and regressive sense of the irreducible power of images -- 'Invincible' feels as though it has been devised by a scholar steeped in Herzog lore, but who at some crucial early stage mistook him for Istvan Szabo.

There's a sugar coating to the way Papale's story unfolds, but not so much that you'll spoil your dinner.
September 15, 2006
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.
September 8, 2006
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.

The latest in Disney's line of films about real-life sports figures never settles for easy answers.
