Becky and I went to see Invincible tonight at the AMC Movie theater in Littleton, Colorado. The theater was pretty crowded with people of all ages ready to see this movie. The Fandango website at Invincible describes the movie as follows:
“Lifelong football fan Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg) sees his wildest dreams come true when he becomes a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. While working as a teacher at his high-school alma mater in Pennsylvania, the 30-year-old gets a chance to try out for his favorite team, and, except for kickers, becomes the oldest rookie in NFL history who never played football in college. Based on a true story.”
Invincible is a great flick that has been panned by a number of movie critics, including the key movie critic in the Denver Post who thought it was over-rated and unrealistic because of Papale’s record with the Eagles. Obviously, the guy is not a true sports fan and probably never threw a football as a kid. The fact is that this movie rocked!
It was a great film that had everyone in the theater cheering for the underdog. In fact, it was so inspirational that at the end of the movie the audience was clapping, which doesn’t happen too often in movies these days. If you’re tired of the bang, bang, ridiculous world of murder, mystery, horror garbage at the movies and ready to see something based on real-life, go and see this flick.
Mark Wahlberg, Greg Kinnear and Elizabeth Banks were all great in this movie and it was nice to see Disney putting out a film that mainstream America can enjoy. Although it’s rated PG and is being promoted as a family film based on a true story, little kids will be bored unless they are die hard football fans. It’s more of a clean teenager to adult film with a PG rating.
Becky and I both thought that the movie was definitely one you don’t want to miss at the box office. Especially, if you’re a sports fan, you won’t be sorry that you spent your money to see this movie and it’s worth seeing on the big screen rather than waiting for the rental.
