Wikipedia: wiki about the movie

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul..

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud..
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed..

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid..

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul...

This movie shows that strenght is in the group. It was good although I'm not a rugby fan.

Very important movie. To fully understand it, the viewer should know at least some basic info about history or situation in South Africa and apartheid. As the line from the movie says: “The rainbow nation starts here. Reconciliation starts here.” when Mandela become president. I fell like it sums the movie perfectly.
I’ve watched Invictus before and this time something else impressed and intrigued me. I paid more attention to the relationships between characters. The whole process of growth of each character was incredible. I don’t necessarily mean two main roles, but the supporting ones. For example, the friendship that formed between the bodyguards of Nelson Mandela. I think this showed the actual kind of respect, forgiveness, and friendships that happened in South Africa at that time. What stood out for me the most in the movie were poems. Especially Nelson Mandela’s favorite poem -“Invictus” (which means unconquered in Latin) written by Ernest Henley.

It’s a very nice movie. I liked the way of thinking of the president who tried to unite all people. The president's bodyguards at the end of the movie amused me the most.

Thanks to this film I finally understood rugby. Mostly :)
I like the message that sport can have a great impact. Unite people despite differences.
I LOVE bodyguards. Also the scene with police officers and a kid.

The story in this movie seems to be impossible and I still can’t believe it happened for real. This movie shows that forgiveness and faith in people are the key to the success. ,,Invictus” proofs that people can cooperate if they really want to. Nelson Mandela and rugby definitely became a symbol of united RPA. Great movie!
