A true hero story. Several heroes in this story.
Chadwick Boseman is one of the greatest actors of our time. This movie is perfect.
Boseman hits his key scenes out of the park, making a swell couple with Shame's Nicole Beharie, while Helgeland stages Robinson's signature base-stealing with undeniable aplomb.
Already a hit in America, 42 is a well-told but square biopic doing justice to Jackie Robinson rather than exploring him.
The ambitious new biopic about Robinson, is better written and produced than those children’s books, but it isn’t any deeper, and that’s a disappointment.
