Is It Any Good?

This is a hilariously awful action movie that skirts close to "so bad, it's good" categorization. Invincible is marred by, among other things, mumbled dialogue, absurdly dumb dialogue with an excessive reliance on the word "f--k," and scenes that make absolutely no sense. In one of many head-scratching scenes, for instance, in the middle of a showdown between the hero and villain, the hero gets a "just checking in" call from his significant other, with whom the hero has been having some relationship woes. (Spoiler: He takes the call in the middle of this "tense" standoff.)

Everything about this screams "amateur hour," and all the gratuitous cursing, violence, and brief nudity can't overcome that. Even the least awful part of this movie, the fight choreography, is marred by the ridiculous dialogue and subpar special effects. In terms of positives, this movie teaches the viewer an excruciating lesson on how not to reveal the backstory and personal lives of the main characters. It's the kind of bad movie that's almost impressive in how bad it is.
