It sounds like Mark Wahlberg is starring in the sequel to Unbreakable, but that’s not what Invincible is about. Also, Invincible is a Disney movie, and those people are out of the M Night business. No, Invincible is a football movie, and it’s one aimed at agening people like me (33 this year! Jeez) who want to believe that we’re not over the hill just yet. Here’s the official synopsis:
From the studio that brought you "The Rookie" and "Remember the Titans" comes "Invincible," inspired by the true story of Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg), a man with nothing to lose who ignored the staggering odds and made his dream come true. When the coach (Greg Kinnear) of 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.
It’s like Rockstar with pigskin!
