Two Line Reviews - #401

Movie: Invincible(2006)

Plot: A bartender in Philadelphia appears for the season trials organised by the revolutionary new coach and surprises every body to get into the Eagles team and inspires fans of the team by helping the eagles resurrect themselves! Based on the true story of Vince Papale.

What Works?
  • This is one of those hollywood films that show action at its own pace, gaining momentum gradually and finishing off in style! A pretty familiar brand, interesting nonetheless.
  • Mark Wahlberg's portrayal of Papale commends respect and the way he uses a personal insult to propel himself to success is inspiring stuff!
  • The father's role is small but crucial; Those of the NY fan-girl, Coach, Papale's friends make a mark too.
  • The scene when he comes back to his backyard to play and turn the timid friend into a believer stands out.
Inspiring enough if not invincible!
