Great movie a real must see. Some typical US racial history we all know but presented so well and the character development was really stellar. Don't miss this one!!!

Movie Of The Year

By Kaufin
Written June 28, 2016
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

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.

Outstanding Sports Movie

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.

In these days when it seems as though no one can get along...we need a movie like "42". Jackie Robinson was truly a gentleman and a hero, unlike any we see today. I laughed and cried!
