  • Eastwood's modest approach to these momentous events shames the usual Hollywood showboating. In a rare achievement, he's made a film that truly is good for the soul. show more

  • It's never less than worthy and entertaining, but the importance of Invictus doesn't broaden as it goes along. It narrows. show more

  • Invictus, which is Latin for "unconquered," gives the poem several meanings in the context of the film. It also applies to Eastwood, who, as one of America's greatest storytellers, finds enthralling tales and fashions them with finesse and an indomitable spirit. show more

    Another excellent film from Clint Eastwood. Nelson Mandela is the newly elected president of a deeply divided South Africa and recognizes his main task is to try to unify separate races into one nation capable of solving its serious problems. Seeking a means to inspire the country to unite, he focus on the Rugby team's attempt to win the world cup, a near impossible task. He exerts his skilled leadership to inspire the Rugby team. Even winning a couple of games in the world cup competition would be quite an accomplishment. An inspiring movie about inspiration.
