Critic Reviews of "42: The Jackie Robinson Story"San Francisco ChronicleMay 07, 2014
A dramatization of what Robinson did and what it required, 42 will not disappoint.TIME MagazineMay 07, 2014
It's not easy to play a stoic, but Boseman anchors the movie, and when he smiles, 42, already such a warm story of such cold times, gets even brighter.Time OutMay 07, 2014
The style of the film, lush and traditional, is nothing special, but the takeaway, a daily struggle for dignity, is impossibly moving.San Diego ReaderMay 07, 2014
The story isn't much more than a hit parade of "Shut up, racist" moments -- Alan Tudyk's opposing manager just oozes with venomous talk -- but its blunt force is enough to get the job done.New YorkerApril 22, 2013
A square, uninventive, but detailed and stirring bio-pic devoted to the two years in an athlete's life that changed a nation.National Newspaper Publishers AssociationMarch 07, 2017
This honorable and enlightening film pays due respect to Jackie Robinson -- a sports legend and courageous American hero.CinemixtapeApril 08, 2016
The Jackie Robinson story has always been more than deserving of a gaudy big-screen telling, and Helgeland is happy to oblige.Maclean's MagazineMay 07, 2014
A hero without imperfections can be problematic. But Jackie's nobility is more than well-earned, and tarnishing it for the sake of balance would be churlish. Besides, there's enough evil at loose among the white characters.Sacramento News & ReviewMay 07, 2014
Boseman gives a potentially star-making performance, while Ford, at 70, segues smoothly from firm-jawed action hero to elder-statesman character actor.Canada.comMay 07, 2014
It comes with a smooth burnished period look, and it tells a smooth and burnished story. Helgeland has good intentions but not much new to say about a real-life hero who wears his nobility and torment mostly as symbols.Film Comment MagazineMay 07, 2014
As a fond gesture to a country coming out of the dark ages, 42 is a good-hearted attempt at Robinson's story regardless of the historical realities it chose to gloss over.
