A Bit Long and Heavy But Overall Informative
This film brings to the forefront an important message. It explores the ugly side of fame in football. The repercussions of a life of hard hitting playing.
Will Smith gives a wonderful performance as Dr. Omalu. One of his best in recent memory for sure. In fact the whole ensemble is strong. Occasionally Alec Baldwin drops his southern drawl and I found that jarring, occasionally taking me out of the story.
The soundtrack was also something that I found jarring on occasion. I felt the direction was smooth and flowed quite well and the movie doesn’t seem as long as its 123 minute run time.
If you’re a fan of the game of football then go see this.
Tell the truth! A provocative and compelling drama that discovers a medical problem and it asks how will the biggest sports corporation contend with it?
If anyone is a die hard NFL fan like me and follows the game and the sports world and the news, you know that over the years the league has been facing the problem of how to deal with player concussions and how to protect them better, and what to do when the players retire. The film “Concussion” deals with that on going drama just fine as it follows the research and work of one real life pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu(played in a tough strong performance manner from Will Smith). Set in Pittsburgh after the deaths of several star former Steeler players most notable that being hall of fame center Mike Webster(in a gritty performance from David Morse)who due to many hits to the head developed all kinds of problems like hearing voices, and loss of reality as he even had to live away from his family taking shelter in his own truck before falling to suicide by a head gunshot wound. The film is somewhat sad and emotional as you see the broken down players and hear the stories of their problems and passing. Dr. Omalu is one pathologist who’s eager and willing to find out more and why and what drove these former players to young deaths by suicide, so thru his work he finds brain damage in these former players who suffered concussions and all would develop a new disease CTE. At first his medical news is doubted by others doctor’s(played well by Alec Baldwin and Albert Brooks)yet they are slowly broken in to believe yet the challenge to face the NFL with the news is the toughest, as the film states you are going to war with a corporation that owns a day of the week even over the church and of course that’s Sunday as the NFL has risen to sports entertainment that’s at the top of the mountain. Finally Dr. Omalu’s voice and discovery does get the league’s attention and many former players and current ones take the issue to capital hill and congress. Overall “Concussion” is one film that’s an emotional drama of discovery and it searches for the truth wanting answers to a new NFL problem that has expanded.
