We saw Invincible tonight. It's completely predictable. But it's also a wonderful movie. In addition to its maximal feel good value, it successfully recreates the ambience of South Philly in the late 1970s. The football scenes are thoroughly believable as are renderings of NFL games in Dallas and Philadelphia.

Mark Wahlberg is understated and believable as real-life football wannabe Vince Papale. The supporting cast is strong as well.

You can't throw any tomatoes at this movie for its seemingly implausible premise...because the events it portrays actually happened.

It's a terrific movie!
