  1. Laura G.'s rating of the film Concussion

    "For them you're not even an American for them you're..." "A doctor?". Important message not only about the abominations committed by American football and the inhumane treatment of their players but also about the immigrant status in the USA. Yet, it falls into one of these Hollywoodized films ending up being only slightly memorable thanks to Will Smith's performance.

  2. Aivaras_Z's rating of the film Concussion

    Just Will Smith doing non-explosion Will Smith things. Quite average, although the topic is very interesting - would be interested to see a movie more focused on the struggles of the athletes, or the power games within the industry.

  3. Star Lord's rating of the film Concussion

    Zone d'ombra è il titolo italiano. Un gran film che esplora una vicenda difficile e dura da accettare sul football.

  4. Zach Closs's rating of the film Concussion

    A very poor man's "The Insider." Derivative, meager, overacted, trope-ridden Oscar-bait that feels like a trailer for derivative, meager, overacted, trope-ridden Oscar-bait. Possibly the most ham-handed film I've seen this year.

  5. Nadin's rating of the film Concussion

    A film with an interesting subject. But the usual Hollywood structure is too apparent. It ruins it all. Will Smith saves the film with his good acting.

  6. Ulrich JARLØV's rating of the film Concussion

    Awful. And Will Smith was NOT robbed!

  7. Tiago Gonçalves's rating of the film Concussion

    "Spotlight" for the impatient white heterosexual dude.

  8. Inês Moreira Santos's rating of the film Concussion

    Uma boa surpresa. 3.5 Will Smith está muito bem.

  9.'s rating of the film Concussion

    actually Concussion can be more big and great. They just playing save with the sensitive issue in America.

  10. batarde's rating of the film Concussion

    You'd think during development you'd realize they didn't have enough story for a feature film.

  11. Eddie Rinctoya's rating of the film Concussion

  12. T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Concussion

    For a film with a traditional narrative style it establishes its conflict too far into the story. Halfway through you get the impression it might all be over without anything having happened yet. Dr. Omalu states God didn't make us to play (american) football. I want to jump onto this train of thought and say God also made the Earth round, and thus, we ARE made to play (association) football. Conflict Solved ;)

  14. FCC 86's rating of the film Concussion

    "The NFL owns a day of the week. The same day the Church used to own"

  15. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Concussion

    We’re before a super-interesting story given to us in a so-so execution whose narrative gaps and technical flaws aren’t as salient as the story itself.

  16. msmichel's rating of the film Concussion

    An O.K. Will Smith vehicle that suffers from a script wary of going for the jugular. Especially wasted here is the very talented Gugu Mbatha-Raw who is cast thanklessly in an under written part. Nevertheless the film is watchable and entertaining enough but nowhere near political or agitating enough.

  17. Cláudio Martins da Silva Alves's rating of the film Concussion

    A solid star vehicle that has little else to offer apart from its carismatic lead performance. The supporting cast is especially wasted by the director's inability to show any interest in anything but Will Smith's undeniable star presence. Ultimately disposable and easily forgettable.

  18. doublelife91's rating of the film Concussion

    Hard to watch. You'll never look at football the same way again.

  19. Zac Weber's rating of the film Concussion

    This is definitely more of a tragedy than you'll usually find for a movie with Will Smith in the lead, but he churns out a solid performance as Dr. Bennett Omalu. Unfortunately, the complexities of the league's cover-up are sugarcoated for an easily-digested underdog story and clunky romantic subplot.

  20. Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Concussion

    Like the approach to the story in terms of it being a slowburn and tense look at yet another corporate America coverup in lieu of the tobacco industry and the repeated denial of climate change. Doesn't have the same kind of gripping social/investigative angle of "Spotlight," but manages to do well as being a basic procedural that tells a good story with a strong central performance.

  21. Michael Peer's rating of the film Concussion

    Forgetful and melodramatic. The recreations are weak and play out like a B-movie virus instead of a introspective cognitive disease. Will Smith is good, not Oscar worthy. Similar to his other Sony projects, this is an uplifting story of an underdog. It looks sharp and has good intentions. Too bad the film isn't nearly as gripping or revealing is it hopes to be.

  22. ‏ㅤ's rating of the film Concussion

    Giving this film one star without watching it for compromising itself.
