Invincible - Trailer # 1

When the coach of Vince Papale's beloved hometown football team hosted an unprecedented open tryout, the public consensus was that it was a waste of time--no one good enough to play professional football was going to be found this way. Certainly no one like Papale--a down-on-his-luck, 30 year-old, substitute teacher and part-time bartender who never even played college football. But against these odds, Papale made the team and soon found himself living every fan's fantasy--moving from his cheap seats in the upper deck to standing on the field as a professional football player. In theaters August 25, 2006.

Invincible reminded me a lot of The Greatest Game Every Played. Both were about momentous sports moments that actually happened and both really played up the under-dog elements of their respective stories. I liked both of them, but both also suffered from what I call "caricaturization." A lot of the supporting cast could be accurately described with five words or less. They were basically stereotypes with names. Still, Invincible manages to inject some real emotion into its cardboard cast and let's face it, the premise itself is pretty darn exciting.
