Harrison Ford has never given a bad performance in his life and this maybe one of his best ever! Sooner or later you have to give thismn an Oscar!
Tim Mocarskisaid on Saturday, April 13, 2013 10:03:49 AMI agree the film was good, but I don't think Ford's portrayal of Rickey was cartoonish. Rather, I think it's one of Ford's best jobs in his profession, and the scene where he explains to Robinson why he has done this is comparable to James Earl Jones explaining the people will come. This is not the greatest baseball film ever made, but it does have its shining moments.
