The down-and-out Papale is handed a once-in-a-lifetime shot at turning from anonymous football fan to football star by legendary coach Dick Vermeil, after he sees in Papale the kind of guts and heart he hopes to build in his team. Now, up against bone-crushing training sessions, the intense pressure of make-or-break games, and thrust into a pro sports world he had only ever imagined, Vince must find a way to transform from watching the games from the cheap seats to playing them for real stakes.
Drama - This is an inspirational sports drama that has appeal beyond
football fans. There is some rough football action, but on the
whole the film is appropriate for older children.
PROFANITY: One mild profanity. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Some fighting and very hard, rough football action. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol. ACTION: Football action. COMEDY: Some comic dialogue and situations.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average I'm sure there's a lot to cheer about in the real-life story of pro football player Vince Papale, but there's nothing to laud in this lifeless white-wash of a motion picture.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average Invincible doesn't offer any surprises. But it is a well-made, fairly exciting movie that, like its hero, has heart.
