What is a great movie? A great movie is when it is inspiring or exciting. A great movie to me is invictus. Invictus is a movie about Nelson Mandela during his presidency and the world cup of rugby. Invictus is very inspiring; it’s a masterpiece.

Nelson Mandela is one of the main characters and the president of South Africa. He is also using the Springboks because he wants to bring the country together. Francis is another main character and is the captain of the Springboks. Francis doesn’t know Mandela is using them. Francis inspires his team by taking them to Robin Island were Mandela was held for 28 years.

Nelson Mandela got out of prison in 1990 and became president of South Africa in 1994. In South Africa the black people want to get rid of the Springboks because there colors represent apartheid.

I love this movie.  It is sad to see a man like Mandela in such a struggle for his life right now.  A true hero.  Viva Mandela!
