Plot Summary

The film is based on the true story of Zishe Breitbart, a Jewish blacksmith's son from Poland who becomes a sensation in Weimar, Berlin, as a mythical strongman. His employer Hanussen dreams of establishing an all-powerful Ministry of the Occult in Hitler's government. Yet as Hitler's hold on power grows more sure, and Berlin erupts in a ferment of anti-Semitism, Zishe must decide how he will use his strength. Plagued by nightmares, he takes counsel from a local rabbi and becomes convinced that he has been chosen by God to warn his people of the grave danger they face. Starring Academy Award and Golden Globe-nominee Tim Roth ("Rob Roy," "Pulp Fiction") and Udo Kier ("Blade," "Ace Venture: Pet Detective").

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Embellished with touches of magic realism and washed in a voluptuous quasi-Wagnernian score, Invincible, when at its best, is almost as seductive as Hanussen's games of smoke and mirrors. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Half-baked Herzog, though it has twinkles of theatrical purity that remind you of when his vision was grand. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: It's difficult for a longtime admirer of his work to not be swept up in Invincible and overlook its drawbacks. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Feels less like a change in [Herzog's] personal policy than a half-hearted fluke. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010
