This film isn't just a biopic. And it's not preachy. It just presents the facts through a courtroom case based on race. It's courtroom drama and you become part of the jury.

Anyone expecting a substantive picture about Marshall is just going to have to lower their expectations...

Young Mr. Lincoln by way of the Hallmark Channel.

If you think you're going in to see a movie about the life and times of Thurgood Marshall, then you're sadly mistaken. Now, if you don't mind watching an entertaining and court drama, then by all means get your popcorn ready.

The film is handsome and admittedly rousing in spots, but also dismally familiar, and presented with an annoying slathering of winking hindsight.

Boseman, who has also played James Brown and Jackie Robinson, brings Marshall to life in an interesting way - almost like that of a super hero. It's a unique approach, but one that fits the film quite well.

It's unfortunate that a film about one of America's great humanists could be so stiff, mechanical, and forgettable.

Marshall isn't so different from a well-made TV movie. But it plays well on the big screen anyway...
September 5, 2018
It's not a biopic about Marshall. The scope is too wide and too narrow at the same time, completely missing the mark.
August 30, 2018
An essential historical crime drama that prospers from the chemistry between the two leads and social themes that can reflect today.
August 28, 2018
The film turns out to be a mixture of courtroom drama and buddy comedy.
August 27, 2018
Still powerful and upliftlingly hopeful, Marshall borderlines what could be a Gad film as he interjects and oversteps.
August 24, 2018
Boseman played Thurgood with a lot of lightness, a lot of charm, a lot of swagger.
June 20, 2018
Strangely, they told a story from Marshall's life where he took the backseat to a white man.
March 13, 2018
Marshall, in any case, is kind of a superhero movie.
February 9, 2018
It features two fine performances by Chadwick Boseman and Josh Gad. While many characters in the film are one-dimensional, the story itself is compelling and the two main characters work well together.
January 24, 2018
The missteps pile up, the tone descends into middlebrow pablum.
January 12, 2018
Marshall misses opportunity after opportunity to be truthful and relevant in the world today because while, it looks good, and the story unfolds pretty flawlessly, it has blinders on that disregard the depths of the circumstances and impacts of the case.
December 21, 2017
A standard, albeit perfectly constructed, courtroom drama, which at times feels like a pilot for a TV series chronicling Marshall's celebrated career.
December 6, 2017
Thurgood Marshall is a real-life superhero and Marshall is his origin story
