This is a must see movie. If you have kids that are into sports or any activity that they are committed they need to see how to overcome and prevail through all difficult situations.

This movie should be a "must see" for everyone as a history lesson of the life and times of the era. It's an excellent film with Harrison Ford in an Oscar winning performane as Jacki Robinson's manager Branch Rickey. I don't often want to see a new flick a second time, but this one is worth it. Again, I hope the majority of the population of the US see this movie to get some undertanding of what it was like for Robinson to endure the abuse and incredible intolerance that he did. And that he did it, not only as a great ball player, but also as a gentlemen. Go see it !

To tell the whole story of the life of Jackie Robinson would take many hours to do. The film 42 gives us a glimpse of his life. It is a film well done. It was humorous at times. sad, intense and heartwarming. Harrison Ford gives an Oscar worthy performance as Branch Rickey. The acting was solid all the way around. The film really captured the attitudes and events of that period in time. I really liked the film and I plan on seeing it again. It is a must see film for all of us.

I enjoyed this movie. Being born and raised in MS it shows the actual reality of the painful past of the Negro. Even through trying times GOD has always had a Ram in the Bush.....

This is a must see movie for every American. I laughed and cried and was completely enthrallled with the story of how Jackie Robinson overcame so much to be the first black in baseball. He and Branch Rickey are American heroes in my book. The acting is superb and I would give Harrison Ford and Boseman an academy award if it were up toi me. This should bed seen by families together and discussed after watching. It is a lesson for all ages. I give it the very highesgt rating available. Loved the ending and catching up on all the players, etc.
