Chadwick Boseman was amazing in 42. As a young and fairly new actor it can be hard to make a name for yourself. He doesn't seem to have any sort of trouble with that. The fact that he is also playing a legend such as James Brown gives him even more cinema cred. He is also supported with an amazing cast of some hard hitters. Boseman proves acting is his calling again with an amazing performance. He... read more

Since I have always been a fan of James Brown, I was quite eager to check this flick. As a matter of fact, one of the very CD's I bought as a kid was a James Brown CD (to be honest, I don't have it anymore and, nowadays, I don't have anything from this artist which is quite a shame). Anyway, coming back to our main feature, it turned out to be a decent biopic, no more and no less than that. Indeed... read more

“Since I have always been a fan of James Brown, I was quite eager to check this flick.

Anyway, coming back to our main feature, it turned out to be a decent biopic, no more and no less than that. Indeed, after Jackie Robinson, Chadwick Boseman played here another African-American icon, he delivered another really strong performance and only for him, it is worth checking the damned thing. Concerning the rest of the movie, I obviously loved the soundtrack but everything else, especially the directing, was borderline underwhelming or, at best, pretty generic. For example, one thing that seriously b” read more
