    Synopsis


    Invincible
    From the producers of The Rookie and Remember the Titans comes an inspirational sports drama detailing the true story of a down-on-his-luck football fan whose dreams of standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the best of the gridiron became a once-in-a-lifetime reality when he took part in an open tryout organized by Philadelphia Eagles coach Dick Vermeil. Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg) was a 30-year-old substitute teacher and part-time bartender who had never even played college football. When Coach Vermeil (Greg Kinnear) made the unprecedented announcement that he would be holding open tryouts for the Philadelphia Eagles, Papale would go against incredible odds to live the dream and experience every fan's biggest fantasy. With a position on the Eagles secured and a new life path forged out of little more than determination and persistence, Papale takes to the field to experience the life-altering rush of running yards as a stadium full of cheering fans burst from their seats to support the hometown hero who proved it's never too late to take control of your own destiny. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Invincible is easily one of my favorite football movies, rates right up there with The Blind Side and a few others. This movie based on the former Eagles player Vince Papale and his unlikely path of making the team is a lot of fun. One of the best thing about the movie besides the great story is the great music that is included in it. This is definitely a movie worth watching over and over... which is what I've done over the years

      I admit, I love most football and baseball sports movies, but this one is a favorite of mine! I have watched it dozens of times on DVD, so when it was on sale, I jumped to get it on BluRay and see it in even more crispness. Still a wonderful movie about hard times in Philly, but one local showing anything is possible. I laugh, I cry, I smile, but mostly I am entertained start to finish, over and over again!!!

      Another great sports flick from Disney. If you liked "The Greatest Game Ever Played," then you are sure to love this feature. It follows the real life tale of a school teacher named Vince Papale whom attended an open tryout for the Philadelphia Eagles in 1976 only to be accepted as one of the teams own. The transfer near reference quality. However, we don't get all the same extras as the standard edition DVD since Disney went with a 25 gig disc. This one is definitely worth a look.

      Since football season is at hand, this movie is great to watch right now. It is a great success story and for those who want to watch someone make it against tough odds...this is a movie for you. Some of the film is interesting how they put old games together. If your team has a bye, sit down and watch this on a Sunday afternoon. Enjoy

      Really great movie and based on a true story. I am not a big sports fan but this movie really stirs emotion. Wahlberg plays the lead character and does wonderful job of drawing you into the plot. If you like movies where the underdog does well, then you will love this movie. This movie is similar to the movie RUDY.

      One of the best sports movies ever and it's clean enough for the whole family to watch. Full disclosure: I'm an Eagles fan so I'm biased, but this is a great (and TRUE) story and the movie is awesome.

      While some parts of the story may have been embellished, the story at its core is true and Disney did a great job with the transfer. The colors are on point with good shadow detail and the audio is the best it has ever sounded.
