I love this movie. It gets me every time. Unsurprisingly, Morgan Freeman makes this movie. Matt Damon is also good, but he isn't Morgan Freeman as Mandela. If this movie doesn't make you slightly obsessed with Rugby and Mandela there is something wrong with you.

A unifying sports film that moves beyond politics to become a story of simple human victory. Morgan Freeman is, as expected, commanding as Nelson Mandela, but it is Matt Damon who surprises here with a nuanced portrait of a rugby striker that is equally as strong as Freeman's portrayal.

A good film as usual from Clint Eastwood, with great performances from Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. The story is about how Nelson Mandela used the South African rugby team to help unite his bitterly divided country. I wasn't really familiar with the story so it was exciting all the way to the end. This will be one you'll be hearing about come awards season.

Based on a true story, this movie is full of Oscar winning performance and dialog. I wouldn't call this a blockbuster hit that everyone should see, but a movie that you should see if you like going and watching all the movies that will be up for an Oscar. Out of Oscar movies, this movie stand a good chance and is worth seeing. The movie is a bit long, and there is a little too much slow motion grunting at the end that drags it on even more, but none-the-less, it is a decent movie that is worth seeing if there is nothing else to watch in the theater that can get your heart pumping with excitement.
