Excellent baseball movie and one more time how America has progressed but always more work to do. The courage of Jackie Robinson portrayed in the movie is inspirational for anyone.

I always enjoy feel good movies but especially so when it's based on a true story. I absolutely loved this movie. There were laughs and tension. I would recommend this to anyone over the age of 10.

Saw it with some international firends. It was a great opportunity to talk about our national pasttime as well as some American history. As a Brookelyn Dodger fan, it was fun to see and remember those times.

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!

42 was an insightful look at what it means to be black

The actors all did a superb job in this movie. It shows the deap hatred and prejudice that was prevailant amongst most white people in this country with seemingly deeper resentment in the south. It shows the courage that Jackie Robinson had to have to be the first "man of color" playing in Major League Baseball... but not just baseball he was the first black man to play in any major league sport. It's too bad he isn't spoken of more often because, he like many other unknown heroes of that day endured just as much hatred and biggotry as MLK Jr. or Rosa Parks. This movie was very well written and is suitable for anyone who wants to see but a small piece of what is was like to be a black person after slavery was abolished. A sad reminder that we did, and in some cases still do, have a long way to go. 42 has to be the best movie I have seen in ages. Congratulations to Brian Helgeland for an excellent documentary.
