Chadwick Boseman is one of the greatest actors of our time. This movie is perfect.

A kind and decent film, but doesn't add to Robinson's legacy.

A profile in real-life courage that would be stronger as a movie if it weren't quite so intent on underlining teachable moments.

Pretty when it should be gritty and grandiosely noble instead of just telling it like it was, 42 needlessly trumps up but still can't entirely spoil one of the great American 20th century true-life stories, the breaking of major league baseball's color line by Jackie Robinson.
