The latest entry from legendary actor/director Clint Eastwood sucks. Plain and simple. Right from the very start this movie assumes that you love Nelson Mandela and know every intimate detail of this true story. I however didn’t, so instead of getting to learn about powerful true story of a man who unites a nation I got to see a story that went nowhere and made me very sleeply. The pacing felt like watching someone as old as Mr. Eastwood try and run a marathon. He gets excited and starts to run but instantly gets tired and stops. The first half is a confusing attempt at a history lesson comparable to a lesson taught by a substitute teacher and the second half is a really lame attempt at Remember the Titans. See the scene where Matt and the boys visit the prison where Nelson spent 27 years.
