It's all quite draining, with one enthusiastic hurrah after another, until there couldn't possibly be any more motivational orations.

Invictus sometimes plods just when it should be fleet of foot.

What strikes you most about this film is just how much pleasure a sure-footed, confident director can deliver by keeping everything simple.

Invictus is a powerful and moving story.

It is probably enjoyable and rousing enough, and does feature a lovely performance by Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela.

Invictus is Eastwood in full Stanley Kramer/Richard Attenborough mode, playing down to the Americans who love cheesy triumphant-sports movies but who generally know little about South Africa and care even less.

Is it schmaltzy? A little. Is it good anyway? Yes. It's not trying to reinvent the wheel but it understands what it is and that the best place to put its focus is not the rugby field.

Invictus hits all the right formula notes of both the biopic and the underdog sports movie, making it impossible to hate. He also hits those notes so insistently and with such a lack of grace that he makes it a difficult movie to like.
