Reviews:
"In one of the most devastating and heartbreaking supporting performances of the year, David Morse is unforgettable as Mike Webster, the Hall of Fame center on the vaunted Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl teams of the 1970s." - 12/14/2015 Chicago Sun-Times


"Will Smith’s performance as Omalu is lovely: small-scaled, precise, imbued with righteousness but not tritely pious." - 12/23/2015 RogerEbert.com


"It's a gripping story....Smith -- flawless in accent and commitment to Omalu's worthy cause -- grips you from first to last." - 12/22/2015 Rolling Stone


"[The] straightforward telling actually serves the strong cast and taut script -- and a story that would be deemed too outrageous to believe if it wasn’t true." -- Grade: B+ - 12/17/2015 Entertainment Weekly


"[Smith] puts his star wattage to clever use here, buttoning down but never attempting to hide his natural magnetism as a real-life character who’s a force of nature in his own way." - 11/11/2015 Variety


"It dramatizes a crisis that is still making headlines today: the dangers of serious brain damage caused by the violent collisions of pro football....It has unmistakable urgency..." - 11/11/2015 Hollywood Reporter
