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.

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.

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.

Marshall isn't so different from a well-made TV movie. But it plays well on the big screen anyway...
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.
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.

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
November 11, 2017
Offering a glimpse at Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall's life, Marshall offers thrills, mystery, and gripping storytelling.
November 10, 2017
I highly recommend Marshall.
November 8, 2017
Marshall's brilliant legacy gets the short shrift in favor of a meat-and-potatoes courtroom mystery, albeit a satisfyingly twisty one.
October 27, 2017
A rousing courtroom drama about Thurgood Marshall as an ardent NAACP lawyer in a town convulsed by racial hatred of blacks.
October 26, 2017
What does Chadwick Boseman have to do to become a household name?
October 24, 2017
While slowly choking on the worthiness of its subject matter, Marshall putters along perfectly pleasantly, and messrs Gad and Boseman are a winning double act.
October 23, 2017
The result is a top-class courtroom drama, thanks to a beautifully balanced screenplay, top-notch performances from the ensemble cast and a nagging sense that, even almost 80 years on, this sort of injustice still hasn't gone away.
