Michel D. (michelann) from WALNUT GROVE, MO
Reviewed on 7/12/2014...
42 is a fantastic look into the great All-American sport of Baseball! It is also a sad commentary on racism and prejudice here in America. Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) had the inner strength and the pure talent to win over the nation and come out a hero. From WWII battlefields to the racial wars at home in America, Jackie Robinson proved to the world that it is what is inside a man (or woman) that counts, not the color of their skin. The best quote from this great movie has to be Do you want a player who doesn't have the guts to fight back? No, I want a player who has the guts NOT to fight back!
With my sermon over I now rave about how great this movie really is, whether or not you are a baseball fan!
Chadwick Boseman is a relative newcomer to the world of big movies as most of his acting history was on the small screen before 42. Boseman (born in 1982) cut his acting chops in small roles on TV series including Justified, CSI New York, Detroit 1-8-7, Castle, Fringe. His first roles were in All My Children and Third Watch in 2003. He will be around a long long time! Harrison Ford also has a significant role in 42 although he is barely recognizable as Branch Rickey, the man who had faith in a young black rookie from the Negro leagues and gave Jackie Robinson (and baseball) a shot at future luminescence! At just over two hours this is one of those films that never has slow or boring moments but rather keeps viewers watching and enjoying every moment!
This is the Combo Pack which includes the Blu-Ray plus a DVD plus the Ultraviolet which allows a great streaming copy of the movie, transferable to an Android or iPhone, etc.
