INVICTUS (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì 

Invictus—wonderful, another outstanding film directed by Clint Eastwood—educates, enlightens, and entertains effortlessly. The movie delivers a message without the audience even knowing because in no way does the message overshadow the entertainment factor. Everything is here…the tension, the hope, the win, the failure, the justice, the injustice, the courage to speak up. The movie shows Mr. Mandela in a positive light. The movie works as a WOW! watch.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This is a film that is wonderful to see. It’s about establishing peace in an atmosphere bent toward division and discord.
