Kidzworld reviews the blu-ray combo pack 42, about the American Baseball Legend Jackie Robinson!

Hero is a word we hear often in sports, but heroism is not always about achievements on the field of play. 42 tells the story of two men – the great Jackie Robinson and legendary Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey – whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball.

In 1946, Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) put himself at the forefront of history when he signed Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) to the team, breaking Major League Baseball's infamous color line. But the deal also put both Robinson and Rickey in the firing line of the public, the press and even other players. Facing unabashed racism from every side, Robinson was forced to demonstrate tremendous courage and restraint by not reacting in kind, knowing that any incident could destroy his and Rickey's hopes. Instead, Number 42 let his talent on the field do the talking  – ultimately winning over fans and his teammates, silencing his critics, and paving the way for others to follow.

42 is now available on blu-ray and DVD!

The Bottom Line

42 is an undeniably inspiring story about breaking down barriers and fighting racism one step at a time, so it's not just a flick made for hardcore baseball fans, it's a story that is guaranteed to appeal to everyone. We all love an underdog after all,  The Blu-ray combo pack's extras let you learn more about this fascinating period in history as well as showing some things you may not know about baseball.

What's not to like? Its got a story, its got artwork which gets better every year and it's a lot of fun. You can get attached to the characters, feel emotion, etc. Its the same with reading a book, watching anime or even a movie. It just happens to be in a different format.  [This may seem weird but when I'm reading a manga I can hear the sounds]
