I laughed and cried during the Movie ‘42’ as it faced unabashed racism from every side. Unfortunately, because of the past bigotry between ethnic groups; today more than many conceal those same emotions. Here is a blameless quote from the movie “What are you afraid of?” I’m only Human…The Movie ‘42’ is a must see human interest film.

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.

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.

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.

As a huge baseball fan, who has read several Jackie Robinson biographies over the course of my life, I rate it as an A-. Purely as a movie, I rate it a B+. It is well done, but not special or epic. An important chunk of history well handled, but not something that will stick with me--but then again, I have known his story since I was a 9-10 year old kid reading bios of Dodgers, Giants, and Yankees from the 30's, 40's, and 50's. . . . . Now if the Mariners did not suck for once, that would be epic.
