Great movie about a real American hero who rose to great levels in the face of tremendous adversity. Harrison Ford gives an Oscar worthy performance as Branch Rickey.

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.

It has been months since I have watched a movie and left the theater feeling my money was well spent. This was well worth paying to go see on the big screen. Harrison Ford and Chadwick Boseman did an amazing job playing the characters in the movie. I would go see this movie one more time in the big screen and most likely get the DVD when it comes out.

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.
