Notes: 
Storyline Heading
Newly elected President Mandela knows his nation remains racially and economically divided in the wake of apartheid. Believing he can bring his people together through the universal language of sport, Mandela rallies South Africa's underdog rugby team as they make an unlikely run to the 1995 World Cup Championship match.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - Although it is a film about the political situation in mid-'90s South Africa, this fact-based film is in the end a traditional underdog sports movie about a rugby team, and as such is aimed at male sports fans. Those looking for a deeper and more extensive look at Nelson Mandela may be disappointed.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good There's no debating that the message of Invictus is worthy, but there are times when its repetition elevates it to a level that's almost sanctimonious.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good Clint Eastwood, a master director, orchestrates all of these notes and has us loving Mandela, proud of Francois and cheering for the plucky Springboks. A great entertainment.

USA Today Full Review
Very Good But the key to Invictus is not players running around on a field. It's two stellar performances and a story that stirs hearts and intrigues minds.
