Did an amazing job of bringing to life one of the most historical and controversial times in our country. I can't say it's the best movie I've seen this year, only because of Zero Dark Thirty. But I definitely put 42 right up there with Lincoln, Argo, and Flight.

If you are a Harrison Ford fan this is him at his finest. This movie got all the emotions flowing. I laughed, cried, and wanted to stand up and clap like we did when I was a kid and shows ended up in an absolute positive way.....and it was true.

I loved this film. The acting was superb. I cried during this movie and became angry, too. This movie is for all ages. Jackie Robinson was a great leader......and a great player of America's favorite pastime.

42 was a very good, well acted film. Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford I thought were both excellent, more so Boseman because he's an unknown and I would expect a great performance from Ford. The only complaint I have about the movie is it's a little slow moving. I took my 11 yr old daughter because she was dying to see it and she really enjoyed it, and think it was good for her to see how terrible racism was and how amazing a person Jackie Robinson was to overcome it.
