The story is more interesting than this film, which is long and slow. There's also some dispute over the accuracy.
I could care less about the sports stuff (not a Rugby fan) but the politics intertwined with the sports make both work better.
Inspiring. I am captain of my soul, is to reasoning through my action and choices as Aristotle said.
it's good, but nothing more
This sports drama was really good. Morgan Freeman, Matt Damon, and the rest of the cast did a fantastic job in this movie. This movie based on a true story about Nelson Mandela and the South African Rugby team the Springboks was very dramatic and inspirational. It's about coming together as a nation during difficult times. Everyone should see this movie. It's a definite must see.
It's special. In this movie a sport like the rugby becomes a new way to connect all the South Africans. I made a trip in South Africa last year and really I was, I am even now impressed by the power and the strength of this country. I suggest everyone to go there and change forever your soul and mind.
The rugby it's the perfect way to express the strength, honesty, courage, and team spirit of this sport.
"rugby is a hooligan's game played by gentlemen".
director Clint Eastwood tells half bio-pic, half sports drama
the focus is on Nelson Mandela played by Morgan Freeman as acting President in 1990 resolving the issue of apartheid in Africa; the North Africans and the South Africans are on the brink of a civil war
there's so much racial and economical disintegration next to problems of housing, food, jobs, and crime
it's only when the game of rugby can Mandela hope to find a way to restore the broken country, if the World Cup can be won maybe unity is possible
the captain of the rugby team is Francois Pienaar played by Matt Damon and together with Nelson they would forever change the face of a nation deeply cut in half
the sports stuff is actually more interesting than the historical parts, maybe it's because you get to see two separate teams duke it out while combating hatred, racism, and cruelty while being athletic
the leads are fantastic, the African culture is warming, the music is composed beautifully, and it's a nice melding of two genres of film
this is actually one of Clint Eastwood's better movies showing that a love of a sport can even bring together two halves of a single nation together
A solid character study that only needed more awe. Invictus included pacing and time manipulation that was often tangled, and an odd overuse of particular cinematic techniques in the tail end. From a cultural standpoint, it was worth the watch. -Go
I hope to learn more about the history so that I can honor the objectives of Mandela
Great movie Love the movie
