    Invincible doesn't offer any surprises. But it is a well-made, fairly exciting movie that, like its hero, has heart. show more

    Core, a cinematographer who helms both camera and directorial duties here, creates a vivid sense of time and place without letting the period music, clothes or art direction intrude.
