i know people raved about invictus. i was underwhelmed. sorry clint. maybe my expectations were too high having watched most of that world cup live and seen the final many times. beyond the expected hollywood clich├ęs - i found it REALLY didn't do the rugby justice. i don't understand how movies can make american football look more exciting and rugby look less so. especially the football style interjections of scuffles. it also really didn't do lomu justice - maybe he wasn't the uncanny force he was in the rest of the matches...but he wasn't as lame as they make him. at least it makes me want to watch that final again 15 years later. i can verify if my claim about lomu is true. still - that world cup was an excellent one.
