      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Delivered with typically stately precision by director Clint Eastwood, Invictus may not be rousing enough for some viewers, but Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman inhabit their real-life characters with admirable conviction.

      Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express What strikes you most about this film is just how much pleasure a sure-footed, confident director can deliver by keeping everything simple. Rated: 3/5 Apr 16, 2019 Full Review Deborah Ross The Spectator It is probably enjoyable and rousing enough, and does feature a lovely performance by Morgan Freeman as Nelson Mandela. Aug 30, 2018 Full Review Michael Atkinson Sight & Sound Invictus is Eastwood in full Stanley Kramer/Richard Attenborough mode, playing down to the Americans who love cheesy triumphant-sports movies but who generally know little about South Africa and care even less. Jul 10, 2018 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Eastwood couldn’t have made a safer Mandela film. Rated: 3/4 Aug 28, 2023 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins It's all quite draining, with one enthusiastic hurrah after another, until there couldn't possibly be any more motivational orations. Rated: 3/10 Nov 28, 2020 Full Review Jason Best Movie Talk Invictus sometimes plods just when it should be fleet of foot. Nov 27, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Pie S Great historical insights but could've been more concise. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/14/24 Full Review Matthew D A lame sports movie that attempts using historical pretense to disguise itself something more compelling. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/01/24 Full Review Sydney O I wanted to like it but got highly annoyed and bored with Harry's center stage drama that insulted the true heros, Please consider someone who won't detract to host the Invictus Games so we can focus on what's important and not worry that we are giving more money to the grifters. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 09/06/23 Full Review Christopher T It was offensive that the wounded veterans weren't the sole stars... Harry, again, took the opportunity to whine and whimper . How weak and attention-seeking can one spoiled little dimwitted prince be? Everyone knows that Invictus was created in part by Harry's handlers to help reshaped his wayward image. But using disabled vets as a marketing tool to fix his dumpster-fire "brand" after all that he's done to damage his country is just sick. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 09/05/23 Full Review Gareth v A plodding, bland telling of what is an amazing true story. The politics of sport is told in such a dull manner, that what is supposed to be an uplifting ending falls remarkably flat. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/22/23 Full Review Edgar F I have not finished watching it by the time of writing this, But I like some parts of it. The question is: What would happen if the president banished the team and its flag from the beginning Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews
