Concussion — The talent of Ridley Scott and Will Smith shining — 8*/10

  • Story: Only the brilliance of Ridley Scott could possibly make it that interesting. The details are interesting and the technical aspects are done perfectly, but it is by no means thrill ride. There's a limit to what one can do with this story without distorting it.
  • Setting: An incredible discovery of major importance for football and any other contact sport.
  • Style: Like other historical or biographical flick, this one is simple and without any punch.
  • Pacing: Solid.
  • Dialogs: Excellent.
  • Characters: You really get to know them well and they are well developed.
  • Acting: I think this is one of the major reasons for this movie to be this good.
  • Known actors: Will Smith, Alec Baldwin, Albert Brooks, Paul Reiser and Luke Wilson.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Entertainment value: Very good.
  • Who is it for? Scott and Smith fans or those looking for something quiet, yet relevant and are interesting in seeing this case with human faces.
