B+

Details Movie Rated: PG; Genre: Drama; With: Greg Kinnear and Mark Wahlberg; Distributors: Buena Vista Pictures and Walt Disney Pictures

Invincible is the story of a real-life Rocky named Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg), a 30-year-old Philadelphia Eagles season-ticket holder who makes the cellar-dwelling team after an open tryout in 1976. While Papale takes heavy hits on and off the field, director-cinematographer Ericson Core's touch is laudably light.

EXTRAS Two commentaries, but you only need the one with Papale. The guy's all heart: audibly choking up (four times) and remembering how Wahlberg played mud football with his son (his home video is even in the making-of).
