Is this film breaking any new ground in the sports movie genre? No. Is it a fun period piece about every football fan's dream? Yes. Vince Papale, played by Mark Wahlberg, is a 30 year old bartender from Philadelphia who takes a chance to tryout for the Philadelphia Eagles during their 1976 open tryouts. Based on the true story of Vince Papale, Invincible does a serviceable job of doing justice to the real life story. It may hit some points to softly and make dramas out of needless situations, but at it's core, it is a heartfelt story that is inspiring. It does a good job of shedding light on the struggles that people can face in life, and if you take a chance, it could all turn around. This film has decent acting, good cinematography, and a good script. It is a fun movie that hits most of it's notes perfectly, while missing some others. Even is you are not a football fan, you can appreciate the "chump-to-champ" story. It is similar to "Rudy", "Rocky", and "The Rookie", but it is able to make it's own mark on the genre. Overall, I give this film a 7/10.
