February 5, 2010
Another superb humanist drama from Eastwood.
February 5, 2010
Like most of [Eastwoods] recent output, it's a lame-as-anything exercise in obvious moral moviemaking that uses a couple of great performances to cover up the fact that it's actually completely by-the-numbers.
February 4, 2010
A solid retelling of an undeniably inspirational story but it's unforgivably bland in places.

A solid but flawed film--Freeman's charmingly disarming portrayal keeps it real.

The film serves as a reminder that no matter how dire the circumstances, truly remarkable change is possible.

With Invictus, Eastwood gets his message across in much the same way as the South African special forces -- he beats us over the head with it.

Um filme menor e falho sobre uma figura que certamente merecia uma obra mais digna de sua trajetória.

While an admirable exercise in by-the-book filmmaking, it nevertheless lacks emotional depth.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Como retrato de un período histórico trascendental, Invictus es superficial y simplificadora. Pero como reivindicación del espíritu humano y del poder unificador del deporte, sale victoriosa y emociona.

Eastwood is one of the most reliable and assured directors working today and like most of his films Invictus combines his disciplined approach to filmmaking with his calm desire to not rush proceedings in order to allow the story to leisurely unfold.

Perhaps the greatest testament to Eastwood's directorial skill is that such an unattractive, brutish game could serve as an uplifting symbol of communal harmony and renewed national spirit.

As a story about political change, it's fascinating. And as an Eastwood film, it's perhaps less than we have come to expect.

While the film is not quite in the same league as Eastwood's finest works of the past decade, it is still to be admired for telling quite a complex tale in such a clear and compelling manner.

Eastwood seems to inherently know that even in a big story, it's the intimate moments that hold everything together, and he is never overwhelmed by the size of the story.
January 19, 2010
If only Eastwood had been more ambitious with the drama, and more imaginative with the rugby scenes.
January 17, 2010
Quirks of accents aside, Invictus is an uplifting film. Its African-inspired soundtrack is spot on, too. So, go ahead -- it'll make your day.

A gripping, moving, sobering and highly entertaining film
January 16, 2010
There's nothing superficial about this thrilling and powerful feel-good film that transcends genres and soars as high as our hearts will fly
January 15, 2010
What Eastwood has done is to assemble a cast of American and South African actors and allow them to create something moving, exciting, and improbably true.
January 10, 2010
This blend of Great Man biopic and underdog sports rouser is spacious and laidback, light on pious cathedral lighting and inescapable Obama parallels
