Not just for Philadelphia Eagles fans, but for all sports fans who love a great underdog story. Watching this film, I was transported back to the gritty streets of South Philly in 1976, watching the impossible dream unfold for a guy down on his luck, but determined to change his life with his love for football -- and for his favorite team, the Eagles. Mark Wahlberg did an excellent job playing the improbable hero Vince Papale. The supporting cast is also very good, with a great turn by Elizabeth Banks, who believes in Vince's dream of making it in the NFL. It shows that with hard work and <more>
determination, anything is possible. A film for the whole family to enjoy!
I was very pleasantly surprised as to how good this movie was. I haven't seen a movie this good all year. It is a great story not only about Vince Papale but also Dick Vermeil's first season as coach in Philly. Growing up in South Jersey and seeing many Eagles games as a kid, Disney did an excellent job making you feel like you were in Veteran's Stadium in the mid-70's. The stadium announcer even sounded identical to the one at the old Vet. This is a story line every bit as good as Rudy and in my opinion, better. The shots of the city of Philadelphia are good. You will not be <more>
disappointed by this one! I went into the movie thinking that I wouldn't hate it but I wouldn't love it either, but I was wrong, it was much better than I would have thought. And it is extra special for an Eagles fan, but great for all football fans.
I gave this film a 10 rating which is highly unusual for me. But, upon reflection, I could find NOTHING wrong with it. The actors are perfectly cast. The musical score is great at transporting you back to the day. The scripting is wonderfully low-key and seemingly true to life. There is no overwhelming sentimentality, yet there is also no unnecessary violence or foul language. In short, it's perfect.Wahlberg can consider this one of his shining moments. As can the rest of the cast. I'm not even a football fan. But, after reading strong reviews, especially about Wahlberg's <more>
performance, I took a chance and went. On my "Mom's night out." I was thinking "If this stinks, then I've wasted a night that won't come around for another week or two." I came home and told my husband "Honey, we've got to see this football film together." He looked at me as though I'd lost my mind. If they made more sports films like this one, then I'd go. I'll be buying the DVD. For the whole family.
I saw this movie at a sneak peak. I screen all PG-13 movies before my children are able to see them. This one is rated PG-13 for the football "violence." The football scenes were so intense, I cringed at how painful they looked. I loved the fact where they just show the hum-drum of everyday life without trying to make everything appear beautiful. They background of South Philly portrayed was wonderful. Mark Walburg did a marvelous job as Vince Papale. To Kevin Conway who portrayed Frank Papale, WOW!!!! You sure can make a girl cry. The remaining cast were perfect in all their roles. <more>
I definitely recommend this movie to anyone. This movie would be great for boys and girls who love football and those who don't. It is just a great story.
Barely flawed but thoroughly enjoyed (by Phillycursed86)
well in all honesty i wasn't sure whether I'd go to see this cause I've been apprehensive about seeing Disney films over the last couple yrs. sans- pirates of the Caribbean . When I heard the story of Vince though before the movie I thought, what the hell. This movie felt as though it was based so much more on the environment than it was about the man. Vince Papale symbolized the spirit of 1 city better than any person I remember ever hearing of and that includes Rocky and Rudy. The only thing I have to ask and maybe this is because of my lack of age 20 yrs. old thank you but <more>
what is or what was Columbo's? and not to get on someone's ass but when I'm watching scenes of the vet how come someone didn't have enough foresight to cover up the track around Franklin Field with Astroturf? Outside of that Mark Wahlberg does a great job thinking back to some of his more recent films I wonder whether he has a funny bone in him cause some of his lines could have been delivered in a more lighter mood. Oh well, great movie and please for the love of god don't spoil it with a dumb-ass attempt at a sequel.
This movie truly captures the passion, and the real love/hate relationship that Philadelphians have for the Eagles, and that if you work hard enough you can make your dreams come true. Even though this movie was filmed at Franklin Field at the University of Penn, the Vet did not have bench seats, nor a track which can be seen in certain parts of the movie the producers did a great job of recreating the true atmosphere of an Eagles game. Even my non-football loving daughter liked this movie. For Eagles fans this is a must see. For everyone else, if you want to see a movie where the little <more>
guy beats the odd's, check this film out, you will not be disappointed, Philly fans love the Eagles, you will love this movie--gfo
Really enjoyed this film. Went with my almost 13 year old son who is just starting his first participation in organized football in school and I think the film really inspired him.No the film does not focus on the Eagles professional sports organization. So if you're looking for a film that does that, you're probably going to be disappointed.The film focuses on our hero and to a large degree his neighborhood friends and what it was like for a 30 year old bartender who only played organized football in high school and how he showed up one Saturday at an unprecedented open try out for a <more>
professional football team and how he was selected....not selected to join the team automatically.No, he was only selected for a spot to possibly be on the team. It took a few weeks of being with the team and surviving 'cuts' until he was actually part of the team.The fact that he did make it, against all the odds, is certainly your classic fairy tale come true.Disney manages to show rough guys from a rough part of Philadelpia and rough professional football players realistically without ever having to utter one profanity on the screen or use gratuitous violence or vulgarity to do it. That's an accomplishment Disney should be proud of.Honestly, as a movie buff, it's been a long time since I've gone to the movies where I was able to stay engaged throughout the running time of the movie.The movie isn't pretentious nor does it take the easy way out in telling its story of rough blue collar characters-by employing vulgarity, overt sexuality or excessive violence.It relies on tried and true methods like a good storyline, taking the time to establish a good foundation in the beginning of the movie, letting the audience get to know the characters involved and then when the bigger more dramatic moments come it doesn't need to rely on over the top special affects to get the audience involved.That being said, the actual professional football game scenes are well done with just enough special affects to give the audience the feel that these actors really were on that playing field playing the game.I really can't say enough about this movie. When all the hype fades away on other overly marketed & bigger budgeted movies, it will be a movie like this one, that you'll reach for over and over again in your personal movie library.And while we're at it, hats off to Mark Whalberg for a sensitive, well acted portrayal.
Support the underdog, after the movie you will smile! (by blanbrn)
After just seeing "Invincible" I must say thumbs up! Way to go that finally after 30 years this true story is brought to the big screen. Call me bias or partial because I'm an Eagles fan, but the story of any underdog making an NFL team makes you happy. 30 year old bartender and part-time school teacher Vince Papale who finds life a struggle from his wife leaving him, to problems paying his bills he finds only one hope that is to escape thru his love and passion for the Eagles. Papale a season ticket holder and sandlot football star decides to give himself a shot at a better <more>
life in 1976 when newly hired coach Dick Vermil decides to hold open tryouts. Papale has the odds stacked against him, but thru his will and determination to make it, because no one ever expected him to do anything he prevails! Papale lands a roster spot as a special teams player a blue-collar guy doing blue collar work on the field. The scenes and background of this movie, especially the way Veterans Stadium is shown is sketchy and unbelievable, but the story is true and touching. Vince Papale played for the Eagles for three seasons, well acted and done by Mark Wahlberg who showed enthusiasm with this role. Also Greg Kinnear is great as legendary head coach Dick Vermeil, overall a great movie of an underdog that leaves you smiling at the end. I hope more real-life NFL movies are made about players, because "Invincible" sets the standard.
Good Story telling, brings back memories (by foolishewe)
I just came from and advanced screening tonight and it was an entertaining feel-good movie. The movie is based on a true "local guy makes good" story, and quite entertaining although after searching online for Papale, it appears that they may have taken a bit of dramatic license with some of the details . The story telling and acting were good. I think Kinnear's presentation of Dick Vermeil I remember seeing Vermeil on the local T.V. a lot back then was outstanding. Mark Wahlberg gave a credible performance as a determined underdog here, he seems to be maturing as an actor, <more>
and from what I could tell was in good physical condition to play this role. Kirk Acevado and Mark Raspoli put in good supporting performances as sometime supportive friends and relatives. The movie is an O.K. family movie if you don't mind a bit of swearing and sports/football violence tackles, blocks and those sorts of things .I grew up in eastern Pennsylvania, and can remember the atmosphere in my home town and, to a lesser extent, Philadelphia at that time. The decline of manufacturing, labor disputes and unemployment/hardship on workers and their families was well presented. My recollections of the Eagles were that the team was pretty weak and the fans being very vocal in their disappointment this is a Philadelphia tradition for all their sports, it isn't just reserved for football . Among my favorite scenes is some neighborhood football that brought back some memories although our games were a bit less brutal . There are a number of funny scenes in the movie and quick one-liners which I won't spoil here .
