What I liked about the film was the look and feel of the non-football segments, the cinematography, plus the colors just gave off a neat but "almost-over-saturated earth tones" vibe for the film at times. The cast is good, nothing too flashy, very solid. The story revolves around the one guy, Vince Papale (Mark Wahlberg), in Philadelphia in 1976 who showed enough promise at the try-outs, initiated by the new head coach Dick Vermeil (Greg Kinnear) to energize the city on regaining its fire after some bad seasons in the 1970s, to make it onto the pre-season roster on the Philadelphia Eagles NFL team. Wahlberg plays Papale as a very understated person, not quite confident of his chances to make the team, but Vermeil sees a lot of heart within his character. While the film is one of those predictable "underdog overcomes enormous odds" sports movies, it's competently filmed and easy to digest, and good primer as we are close to the start of the NFL regular season with just 2 weeks to go. I give it 2.75 stars or a grade of B-.
