I enjoyed every minute of 42. I am a baseball fan and am well versed in the Jackie Robinson story so I'm a little surprised at how this movie stayed sharp all the way through. I usually squirm at 2 Hour+ movies but I was engrossed and the movie ended before I looked at my watch. Great great execution of this great story.

As a huge baseball fan, who has read several Jackie Robinson biographies over the course of my life, I rate it as an A-. Purely as a movie, I rate it a B+. It is well done, but not special or epic. An important chunk of history well handled, but not something that will stick with me--but then again, I have known his story since I was a 9-10 year old kid reading bios of Dodgers, Giants, and Yankees from the 30's, 40's, and 50's. . . . . Now if the Mariners did not suck for once, that would be epic.

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.

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.

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.
