A heart warmer

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!

The movie starts slow, but quickly picks up and keeps the pace

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.

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 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.

Went on opening day and this it the best movie. Exceptional acting and a perfect length. I want to see it again and I don't ever say that.
