42 Jackie Robinson Movie is a must see! inspiring and a true story #movies #reviews


42 the Jackie Robinson story was such an inspiring eye opening movie.  I never stopped to think about how crazy the situation was for him at the time, the kind of hate and racism and ridicule he endured.  I love that this movie reminds us all about amazing people like him that changed America, and its still a little scary to think this was only 65 years ago.

The movie it self was a bit of a slow steady burn, not action packed etc, but the content and the depth really kept you fully into it, and it didnt get boring at all.  Harrison Ford was great as Branch Rickey, someone who was a bit of an unsung hero in this story that deserves great credit for havin the balls to bring black baseball player into the major leagues back then.  Also big kudos to the relatively unknown actor that played Jackie ..Chadwick Boseman was great.

Everyone should see this movie,..if you are white, black, brown or whatever its a story the relates to us all.
