The Year of Jackie Robinson

I'm not quite sure this movie was what I expected. Yey I'm not sure I can put my finger on why. Overall I did enjoy the movie, although it was at times a bit slow, but there was just something that didn't quite fit for me.

There was a ton of big name actors in this, although somewhat surprising not Jackie Robinson himself. You've probably noticed a few from the previews, but a short list of the big names includes Harrison Ford, Christopher Meloni, T.R. Knight, James Pickens Jr., John C. McGinley, and I'm sure I'm missing a few.

The boy complained that it hasn't very historically accurate, but I think that's something you have to expect in a movie like this. I'm just surprised his complaint was there wasn't enough baseball, but maybe he figured going into it there wouldn't be a ton of actual baseball scenes.

I did like the movie, and overall would recommend it. But I also think this is one most people could easily wait and see it once its released on dvd.

  1. I really want to see this movie but I will probably wait until it's out on DVD. I didn't know Christopher Meloni was in it but that makes me want to see it even more!
