Jackie Robinson as a superhuman archetype, standing up to fierce racism and intentional beanballs with the same level of quiet resolve and solemn dignity. It's the sort of movie that writes itself, for better and (more commonly) for worse: one dramatic figure stands against the perils of an acidic hive mind and slowly turns the tide. On the very few occasions where we see cracks in Robinson's veneer, the film is intensely interesting. That's the real draw, to me, how a fiery man struggled to tame his very loud emotions in the pursuit of an insurmountably lofty, important ideal. 42 only gives us a brief taste, sadly, choosing instead to invest its time in tired, overplayed vignettes (hey, it turns out southerners were resistant to integration) and a thin, after-school-special grade performance from its cast. Harrison Ford is a lot of fun as the brash, cocksure executive Branch Rickey, who chose to integrate MLB on his own volition, but he's so makeup caked and under-inspected that it's tough to see the role as more than just a particularly eccentric joyride. Mildly effective, with a few dashes of quality spice, it whiffed on the potential to be so much more.

No idea if this was anywhere near based on real life events (I'm not American, I don't know baseball) - but it was a great movie, with a great bit of sports and emotion. You can see where Chadwick Boseman got such a great reputation after movies like this. Definitely recommended

"I think you realize how much you need to have people that you love. It's not as much about them loving you - it's about you needing to love people." I am beyond shocked. Chadwick Boseman passed away after a 4-year battle with colon cancer. I am kind of flawed right now. Like, wow. The fact that this guy was diagnosed back in 2016, kept his illness private, and yet he still starred in so many movies and gave such powerful performances, while he was sick. It blows my mind. Calling him strong is an understatement. I remembered watching the 2013 movie '42', where he plays Jackie Robinson, and his performance instantly caught my eye in terms of actors to look out for. One year later, he played James Brown in 'Get on Up', and then shortly afterwards he played T'Challa /Black Panther. Fantastic range for an actor. He slipped into so many roles so effortlessly, back to back, which is rare. He was a superhero both on and off-screen. The saddest part was he was only getting started. RIP Chadwick Boseman

**Overall : An incredibly inspiring story told with gravitas, quality, skill, and class.**

To see a film celebrate the character, resilience, and endurance of a man that withstood prejudice, violence, and bigotry without returning hatred with hatred is just inspiring—brilliant cast with incredi More
