'42' movie review by Arch Campbell

Decrease Increase Text size

'42' recreates the 1947 season when Jackie Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers and endured the kind of racial hatred unimaginable today.

Chadwick Boseman plays Robinson as quiet and determined. Harrison Ford inhabits Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey, convincing Robinson to rise above the frightening prejudice hurled at him.

ABC7’s Arch Campbell says it’s the best baseball movie since The natural.
