    Great portrayal of Jackie Robinson's career and racial challenges. Harrison Ford also gives a good performance.

    Touching and heart-warming at the end. A perfect rendition of the life of a hero

    The second act is where the true issues begin with none other than Chadwick Boseman!

    Ironically enough, of course, following his strong and stoic performance here---all the starker compared to the cartoon caricatures from the white cast---Boseman will go from *playing* an icon of heroism who broke a steadfast color barrier, to *becoming* an iconic hero who himself broke something of a color barrier with BLACK PANTHER. It's a powerful and important story, told quite empathetically if rather formulaic in the end, but never really hits the cinematic home run it's is gunning for, largely because the filmmakers take their eye off the ball by focusing on how Robinson changed the views of white spectators far more often than how he inspired the black community.

    Its pacing could have been better, but 42 is a respectful and enjoyable biopic on the great Jackie Robinson that I think most people will enjoy especially if you're a baseball fan or even just a sports fan.

    Truly entertaining and inspirational. Some my fellow movie lovers felt the acting was just ok. I felt the acting was outstanding! Harrison Ford really nailed the role of Branch Rickey. Chadwick Boseman also was superb, did not over play the role. Strongly recommend.
