Bob Mondello
A profile in real-life courage that would be stronger as a movie if it weren't quite so intent on underlining teachable moments. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
It takes a particularly ham-fisted filmmaker to transform a fascinating and historically significant story into something as formulaic as 42. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
What's been carefully filtered out of the film as a whole is the tumult and passion of Robinson's life. Full Review
Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News
Boseman is watchful, winning and confident, but never saintly. Yet he keeps Robinson’s moral spine aligned with his skill and self-respect, showing how he needed all of those to succeed. Full Review
Laremy Legel
A kind and decent film, but doesn't add to Robinson's legacy. Full Review
