Top Critics' Reviews

"This is a competent but mostly unexceptional film about a most extraordinary man."
Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com - April 12, 2013


The filmmaking is TV-movie-of-the-week dull and Robinson's ordeal is hammered home to the exclusion of virtually everything else in his life.
Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor - April 12, 2013


"A kind and decent film, though it doesn't add to Robinson's legacy."
Laremy Legel, Film.com - April 12, 2013


[Boseman] captures, in a clenched jaw or a sidelong glance, a lifetime's worth of dearly attained dignity and barely contained rage.
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger - April 12, 2013
