If you look at other Smith movies (even extending to those with his son Jaden in them, who they always, without fail, compare to his father) I think you'll notice a similar trend; people gripe about nonsense, and usually say something bad about Smith, or they're looking for something to complain about. Anyone can find anything in any movie to complain about; it isn't hard. But what kind of people watch movies just to complain about them? Apparently Will Smith "fans" do. Because almost all of his movies are great, and they're all rated slightly lower than they should be, because a chunk of people seem to get on to every single one of his (and even his kids) movies and bash them. Take The Karate Kid remake with his son in it. Great movie. Any other movie that good would have been a 4.5 star movie. Nope. People got to get on and bash Jaden Smith. 4 stars. This movie? Should be a 4.5 star movie, easily. But what is it? 4 stars. It just goes to show that a majority of the people haven't lost their minds, but the few who have, the random Smith haters, rate it lower.
Trust me, if you want a great story with great acting and get the movie.
If you want just the information and don't want a story, why are you buying a movie? There's a documentary.
But I'm assuming that, since you're in the movie section looking at a movie, you probably want a movie. So I very highly recommend this movie; it's great,
I played from the age of 10 all the way through college. I sacrificed so much, and although I never played a single snap with a professional jersey on my back I always felt like I owed “so much to football” because of all the things “it gave to me”. No matter how many times I hurt myself, not even when I needed a spine fusion in my neck did I change my opinion that football was one of the fondest memories of my youth.
As I watched this movie I remember the moment where my wife pressed paused to ask me, “Hey honey are you okay?” I didn’t even know what to say to her. I said I was okay, but we both knew that what I was seeing had lifted the veil from my eyes. Will Smith does such a masterful job of playing the role of a man who refuses to relent in the face of such a horrendous truth. All of the characters in this movie help us all to see that this is more than just a fictitious story that we get to enjoy and then walk away from. This movie forces us all to face facts and come to grips with something that so many people have refused to see for far too long.
I blame no one but myself for my choices, but this movie has helped give me the lost piece of the puzzle to my life back. It helps me to understand all of the truly irrational behaviors that I have exhibited over the last 20 years of my life. Concussion is more than a movie. It is a gift to countless families who otherwise might lose their sons the same way we lost so many other players to this irresponsible and reckless “sport”. I wish I could meet the writers of this movie so I could hug them and thank them for the boldness of this movie and the message is speaks. Concussion has given my children, my wife, my parents and my colleagues a gift that I never can truly repay.
This is a movie that everyone should watch. Concussion is more than just a movie, it is a revelation, and it absolutely and completely changed my life.
