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.

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.

This was a movie that will probably be rated a classic. All the actors were perfectly cast in my opinion.
It had some very good moral lessons and I would rate it up there with "Blind Side"
It was very emotional at times for me.
I would tell anyone and everyone to go see the movie--any age.

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

If you are wanting to be informed, entertained, and have a wonderful experience see 42. Jack Robinson and Branch Rickey were iconic figures and this movie captures a time in America when the country was moving in a positive direction toward racial justice. The baseball scenes were amazing re-creations. I remember Ebbets Field, Crosley Field, and Forbes Field and the movie brought memories flooding back. If you see one movie this year see 42
