Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Invincible [DVD] (DVD)
Based on the true story of how a regular guy (Vince Papale), struggling through the recession in 70's america, took the NFL by storm after being selected from open try outs with his beloved Philidelphia Eagles.
Like i said this would never happen today but this is a truly inspirational story. Vince Papale lost his job, his wife and was working as a bartender when the Philidelphia Eagles held open tryouts. A publicity stunt to bring the fans back to the underachieving Eagles side. Not even the coach who called for the tryouts to take place was expecting to find a player worth signing but then he saw Vince Papale.
This film is fantastic, the cast are brilliant, the story is inspirational and the script is strong enough to pull off a great film.
American Football fans, sports lovers, Rocky fans buy this film. You will not regret it.
