Concussion, movie review

I can easily see why Will Smith was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance in this movie. His acting is what makes this movie good. To me, it was up on the level of “The Pursuit of Happyness” in both the heart-touching true story and acting. The film was longer than I expected and often when Smith’s character won a victory I thought it was the end of the movie—but it wasn’t.

The story will challenge your view on football. I saw the movie on a Saturday morning and watched a football game that night. I found myself analyzing each tackle, wondering if that collision was powerful enough to cause brain damage.

The science behind the concussions are explained in a relatable manner that anyone will comprehend, and even more so, be entertained by. Each character, even the most minor, was given distinct personality—not something you see in most movies.

Yes, I would suggest seeing this movie, football fan or not, you’ll enjoy it.

Welcome to my blog! I live in Florida with my husband and our Kitty, a rescued Abyssinian. I have several novels published under the name "Nina Schluntz". I’m an avid movie goer, so most of my blog posts will be a review of the most recent movie I happened to see. Sometimes I’ll mix it up and read a book too. Or… my favorite, I’ll see the movie then read the book it was based on! View all posts by mizner13
