Highly recommended. Perfectly captured the anguish this man(JR) had to endure. Filled with love and passion while trying to overcome the reality of hatred. Great movie.

I loved 42 so much and it really related back to Jackie Robinsons life. I did feel they used some words that weren't nessisary all the time. But u should go see it

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 movie is based on true events in the life of Jackie Robinson and the storytelling is great. The movie keeps you engaged, entertained and touches upon the civil rights issues brewing at the time. Unlike other movies (ie the Butler), it doesn't get lost in the details of the civil rights movement and doesn't become a long drawn history lesson, it stays on point, namely #42.
I recommend this movie for the whole family.

This film was a home run! What a wonderful tribute to the great Jackie Robinson! Harrison Ford was incredible! One of the best movies I have seen in a very long time! Touched my heart and stirred my soul! Whole family will enjoy, even if you are not a baseball film. Must see!
