Genre: Real life drama
Starring: Will Smith, Alec Baldwin
Rating: PG 13
My Rating: One thumb up
Here's the story of a dude from Africa, a really really smart dude, a doctor, who ends up in Pittsburgh I think it is. He starts making a connection between star football players who have died because of depression and suicide and the fact that they've pretty much lost their minds before they kill themselves. He thinks about what concussions do to the brain and he thinks about how pretty much playing football has ruined them and killed them in the end.
He tells people about what he's thinking and you know, the NFL doesn't seem to like it! Yeah, so this is the story of that fight and what ends up happening. Which, I will spoil just a bit here... is not much.
Fascinating story. Still, the movie was a little slow for me and I fought to stay awake. But still, a fascinating story.

Bottom Line: Definitely watch if you are into learning history and real life stories and if you enjoy Will Smith no matter what he does.
