I smiled, I laughed and I cried. The movie was extremely well done. Acting and directing was superb! I recommend this movie for people of all ages. It's historically priceless and unforgettable. And, it honors one of our greatest human beings.

Excellent! Harrison Ford never better, but terrific acting all around. A true story about decency and morality that every American, and especially young people, should see and think about. But a moving love story, as well, and very engrossing entertainment.

History Revisited

Old enough to have seen the origional, young enough to appreciate the new movie. The acting was excellent and the historical perspective was accurate. It gave a glimps into our collective past and the way change affected our society as a whole. As Bob Dylan said, "The times they are a changing". It took courage and open minded people to make that change and the movie shows that. I was born in Brooklyn and saw our Dodgers play, nice job. Must see.

My kids ages 10 and 14, husband and myself went to see the movie on it's opening day. The movie although it did not depict the harsh racial action that Robinson endured,was still and eye opener for my kids to see what blacks had to overcome to get to where we are today. My son is a Black American baseball player and just happened to be given the number 42. Yes,the number 42. Now after seeing the movie he has much respect for the game he loves and the man that paved the way for him to be where he is today. A black teenager playing baseball in America. My son had his first baseball game of the season today, the day after the movie and boy did he hit and still those bases,he played with such confidence.My husband and i just laughed and said that's 42. They won. This was an experiencing for both of my kids because they have never had to experience seeing someone so hatefully calling a black person the N word. My daughter and son and I discussed the movie and over all We give the movie a 10
