Product Description

Invincible stars Billy Zane (Titanic, Tombstone) in an invigorating martial-arts fantasy about the ultimate fight of good versus evil! Os (Zane) is a martial-arts expert whose life purpose is to train a band of misfits to fight the ultimate evil. Once part of the Shadowmen-a cult of dark angels who want to destroy the Earth Os was shown "The Way" and gave up his immortality to help mankind. Now, Os and his students must take on his former friend Slate, the ultrapowerful leader of the Shadowmen, in a battle to save the world! Also starring Byron Mann (TV's Dark Angel, The Corruptor) and featuring amazing fight scenes staged by renowned martial-arts choreographer Tony Ching-don't miss this hard-hitting treat!

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Invincible opens with a glorious display of high comic book melodrama, as a malevolent superbeing named Os (Billy Zane, chewing the scenery with his dependable gusto) battles it out with a force of light called the White Warrior. When she opens his heart to love, Os finds himself commissioned to assemble a team of mortal human beings destined from before birth to become hyperhuman protectors of life--and only they can save the earth from the Shadowmen and their truly bad leader, Slate. It's all ridiculous, but for a while Invincible is completely entertaining, directed with verve, visual flash (including surprisingly good special effects and well-choreographed kung fu), and a silly but effective script. Unfortunately, about half-way through the movie grows visually repetitive and its good/evil scenario loses its juice, but that first half was still damn fun; Zane gives trashy dialogue the trashy zest it needs. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars A new twist on a n old story - stylish work! April 12, 2003
Format:DVD
I recently bought this DVD and was especially amazed about the nice effects and very stylish camerawork. Good slow-motion, nice angles and good play with light, shadows and water. The editor and cameraman are really topnotch tryng to envision the the idea of the director with a wealth of innovative work.
The story itself is a rather old one: good vs evil in an epic battle over the unsuspecting little planet known as earth. Combining mythical- and science fiction-elements we are told the story of Os - Billy Zane - a former member of the Shadowmen, dark entities stalking the universe and destroying whole planets. Exiled on earth there is only one way out: Finding the vortex to destroy earth and shattering the grounds of space.
But Os is turned good by an entity of pure love. And so his quest to destroy the shadowmen along with their leader has begun. By gathering four special protectors, unique hyper-humans, each representing an element he is willing to save earth from his former allies.
Very cool fighting-sequences occur. One of the best is delivered in the beginning of the movie, when we are told about the clash between Os and the White Lady who's turning him into a protector force of earth. Sparks fly, energies explodes and we see Zane running on walls, weilding his sword like he's done this since he was baby. Very good choreography indeed. The real good CGI-effects are doing their best to convince us of the existence of superpowered warriors fighting over earth. And they surprisingly succeed.
In the middle of the movie there are some slow moments, but those are filmed in a nice way, bringing the story and the charácters further than simply letting them fight every thirty seconds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Billy Zane gave a good performance April 17, 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A film with a decent story line but the acting wsn't that good. The only one that stood out for me were Os (Billy Zane) who added charm and interest to the speech and altogether stole the show.
The fight scenes were well choreographed and decently performed, though the slow motion became rather too much after a while.
There wasn't enough action in this film, or if there was there was way too much sitting and talking inbetween. The part where Os is telling the elements how Slate will try to trick them and that they musn't hate him for this lingered on a little too long leaving me quite bored at the end of it.
The characters Os and Slate where well introduced at the beginning making it pretty simple to go along with though the elements weren't actually properly introduced although it was quite easy to see who they were anyway.
Altogether I think this film could have done with a little less talking and had more action in. Billy Zane gave a good performance which added more interest to the film and made me want to keep watching. If the other actors had given as good as performance as him, then the film would have been of much higher standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars WATCH THIS MOVIE!!!! August 22, 2005
Format:DVD
I want to bring everyone's attention to the people who made this movie, Jet Li and Mel Gibson. A Buddhist, and the director of The Passion of the Christ.

THIS IS NOT AN ACTION MOVIE! Sorry to say, people, but this is far from what you are going to want if you want an action movie. It is Circle of Iron/The Silent Flute for a new generation. It is not just about kicking the crap out of everyone in their way. It is a philisoophical movie.

Four people who showed the traits of four of the five universal elements [fire, air, water, metal, and void], ended up being the only way to undo the end of the world. That doesn't even sound like a good action movie plot...but then again, that is the point!

All those who want an action movie, get something else. All those who want a good, deep look into Eastern Philosophy, and an even deeper look into themselves...get this movie. Watch this movie time and again. No matter how many times you watch it, you will find something new in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Great but Good enough January 19, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The only reason I'm writing this is for the BAD reviews. The story is not hard to follow, If you pay attention to the philosophy. The action is good with chinese martial arts variations. The Shadowmen (like dark angel type beings) are trying to go home. To do that They must use the tablet to open a portal which will destroy earth. O's (Zane) is a shadowman who was shown good and wants to preserve the earth. Good philosophy, nice form, and some background humor. Aside from the "captain planet" similarities of the heroes, I think this was a good movie. Not flashy, not hard to follow, not profound or phenomenal, just good.

2.0 out of 5 stars "...crimes against cosmic evolution" November 12, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Boy, you'd think that when Mel Gibson and Jet Li got together to produce something, it'd be better than this. Then again, perhaps it would've been a better movie were it actually based on the input of the two aforementioned stars instead of being a rather cheap attempt to cash in on the popularity of The Matrix released two years earlier. If you like your action movies slick but with no substance to them, pick this one up.

The story: after his conversion from evil destructor to a force of good, ex-Shadowman Os (Billy Zane, Titanic) bands together four mortal protectors - bodyguard Michael Fu (Byron Mann, Street Fighter), FBI agent Serena Blue (Stacy Oversier, Guardian), ex-soldier Ray Jackson (Tory Kittles, Next), and master thief Keith Grady (Dominic Purcell, Equilibrium) - to stand against his former friend Slate (David Field, Chopper) and his mystical and deadly brethren as they attempt to destroy the world.

Where to start complaining? The overbearing ambiguity of the storyline? The facelessness of the characters? The debilitating roughness of the narrative? The inharmoniousness between tone and scene? The domination of every scene by unnecessary post-production editing?
