Movie Review: 42

42-Movie-2013-PostersFriday morning, I got a chance to see the movie 42 and boy was I blown away! 42 (Jackie Robinson’s #) told the story of Jackie Robinson and his meteoric rise to the top. I always knew that Jackie Robinson was the first African-American to play in the Major Leagues but it was quite interesting seeing his story from his point of view. Chadwick Boseman’s portrayal of Jackie Robinson was stellar and Harrison Ford’s portrayal of Branch Rickey was equally impressive. I found myself in awe the entire movie, I marveled at Jackie’s strength and what it must have taken to endure. Most of you guys might not know this but I love baseball, it’s one of my favorite sports and after seeing this movie, I love the sport even more. The movie was released in theaters April 12, I strongly urge everyone to go see it! 42 teaches us what it means to go after your dreams even when it seems impossible.

Check out the movie trailer below…
