Perfect movie from top to bottom. It was really hard not to cry through this movie being a young African American woman. Very thankful for this movie and Jackie Robinson.

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.

Excellent portrayal of the introduction of Jackie Robinson into the world of professional baseball. It was quite illuminating as to what he had to endure in his first year with the Montreal farm team and then with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Two great heroes here: Jackie and Branch Rickey. Fantastic acting. Wouldn't mind seeing it again. Great film for everyone to see and be enlightened about the consequences of racial prejudice.

The movie was just okay. I was disappointed in the casting of Harrison Ford in this role, I felt he did not embody the character, he was not believable. Not enough character development. The ending left the movie flat. A wonderfully impactful story that came up short.

I enjoyed every minute of 42. I am a baseball fan and am well versed in the Jackie Robinson story so I'm a little surprised at how this movie stayed sharp all the way through. I usually squirm at 2 Hour+ movies but I was engrossed and the movie ended before I looked at my watch. Great great execution of this great story.
