42 offers an interesting look into the baseball story of Jackie Robinson

What: Movie Review

While it maybe a bit bland and slow paced for some, 42 is no doubt and interesting take on the Jackie Robinson story. The film benefits for being a complete earnest, fact telling biography of the first Black American baseball player. Harrison Ford also chimes in this film with a decent performance playing Branch Ricky. 42 maybe just another baseball film, but it's better than most, and Chadwick Boseman does an above average job as Jackie. Released during baseball season, it's hard not to cheer for Jackie and the struggles he faced as you watch the film.

Grade:
B or B-
