‘42’ offers decent tribute to sports legend

Movie Review


Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

However, perhaps it is on sheer reference to such powerful legend alone that this could be a contender come the next round of Oscars, especially with a relationship that is absolutely golden between Ford and Boseman. Whether it is their meaningful confrontations or even hilarious wit, you can’t help but feel at least one of them will walk away with a statue in some of the best performances of the year so far.

The soundtrack (composed by Mark Ishim) is an average compliment to the epic, something that could have been the case no matter what and may have only had matching amazement if the filmmakers had been able to snag a genius like John Williams instead. I’d certainly watch it again and without a doubt think it would be nothing short of a must see for kids to learn from as an admirable example. In the end, I’d say the final verdict for “42” is four out of five home runs.
