The acting especially by Harrison Ford was superb. I was too young to know about the true discrimination of blacks in sports so this opened by eyes. This show is well worth your money so go see it. .

Best movie I have seen in a long time! The acting was suburb and both Harrison form and Chadwick Boseman were just nothing short of magnificent! What an amazing man Jackie Robinson was! It brings me to tears to see what he had to endure as a black man coming into his own as a baseball player! I am humbled!

Both my husband (a yankee fan) and thought the movie was terrific. Harrison Ford deserves an academy award for his role. Chadwick Boseman was so very believeable in his role as Jackie Robinson.
The announcer stated that the Dodgers "WIN", when the home run was made in the top of the 9th inning. (my husband, the baseball maven said that was the only thing incorrect in the Movie.)
Rachel Robertson was a strong, supportive wife and still shows her strength today.

This was a movie that will probably be rated a classic. All the actors were perfectly cast in my opinion.
It had some very good moral lessons and I would rate it up there with "Blind Side"
It was very emotional at times for me.
I would tell anyone and everyone to go see the movie--any age.

If you are wanting to be informed, entertained, and have a wonderful experience see 42. Jack Robinson and Branch Rickey were iconic figures and this movie captures a time in America when the country was moving in a positive direction toward racial justice. The baseball scenes were amazing re-creations. I remember Ebbets Field, Crosley Field, and Forbes Field and the movie brought memories flooding back. If you see one movie this year see 42
