The Artful Dodger wrote:Invictus - 6/10. About what I expected, but the only thing different from a cliche underdog sports story and this, was that Invictus lacked urgency and emotion. I remember being on holiday, watching some of the '95 Rugby World Cup Final, and while I didn't expect the film to hold a candle to the universal feel-good feeling of the real-life event itself, I just thought it was flat. Some will find this more inspiring than others and the acting first-rate, but I didn't find it to be quite as inspiring in spite of the decent acting. I also felt kind of indifferent about the rugby scenes, but then again, if I wanted to watch some real rugby, I'll flip the channel to Setanta Sports, thank you very much.
Did it show Mandela poisoning the All Blacks' food?
And pretty much giving Francois Pienaar a BJ in front of a worldwide audience?
