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

Great movie a real must see. Some typical US racial history we all know but presented so well and the character development was really stellar.
Don't miss this one!!!

Excellent portrayal of the introduction of Jackie Robinson into the world of professional baseball. It was quite illuminating as to what he had to endure in his first year with the Montreal farm team and then with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Two great heroes here: Jackie and Branch Rickey. Fantastic acting. Wouldn't mind seeing it again. Great film for everyone to see and be enlightened about the consequences of racial prejudice.

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.
