Mini Review - Invictus

Invictus (out now) is the story of Nelson Mandela's quest to unite South Africa by winning in the 1995 World Cup. Like most sporting movies, this film has moments of inspiration. Cheering for the underdog is always something I love. That said, this is not a good movie. The dialogue is cheesy and there are a number of supporting characters and sub-plots that serve no purpose. A big let down. Grade: C+.
