For all its wholesomely uplifting design, 42 makes Jackie Robinson's struggle against racism look every bit as brutal and scary as it was. -- Grade: B+

Rating: B+ -- 42 explains eloquently how and why Jackie Robinson became an enduring American hero, with extraordinary baseball prowess perhaps the least notable of his accomplishments. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- In his most challenging role to date, Boseman's Robinson is suitably charismatic and earnest, giving us a human portrayal of an icon that's easy to get behind. Full Review

It may not be a cinematic grand slam, but "42" does a fine job sharing and celebrating Robinson's legacy, which makes it a solid win. Full Review

Rating: 8.50/10 -- 42 manages to capture everything I know of Robinson and put it on the big screen so everyone can appreciate exactly what that number truly means. Full Review

Robinson is played by Chadwick Boseman....The actor brings real force and dignity to the part, as well as a fierceness that will not be pushed around.

The story isn't much more than a hit parade of "Shut up, racist" moments -- Alan Tudyk's opposing manager just oozes with venomous talk -- but its blunt force is enough to get the job done. Full Review

Product Description:

Brian Helgeland's historical sports drama/biopic 42 relates the historic 1947 baseball season in which Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) decides to sign the first black Major League player, Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman). Although Robinson faces ugly, vicious racism from other clubs, fans, and on occasion his own teammates, Rickey encourages him to not fight back. By following that advice, Robinson allows his remarkable athletic talent to speak for itself, and soon the first-year player becomes one the most popular players on the team, eventually securing the Rookie of the Year award. Christopher Meloni and Hamish Linklater co-star.
