    Invincible works, simply but provocatively, as a parable about the oppressed and the oppressors, victimhood and fanaticism. show more

    Herzog has certainly found a fascinating subject, but he does surprisingly little with it, especially considering the 135- minute running time. show more

    Watching Invincible was a singular experience for me, because it reminded me of the fundamental power that the cinema had for us when we were children. The film exercises the power that fable has for the believing. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Invincible lacks Herzog's usual visual and intellectual panache, and is afflicted by weak English-language acting, which makes it more of a career curio than a major work. show more
