Reviews:
"[A] magnetic Chadwick Boseman plays Thurgood Marshall as a confident and charismatic young attorney buff enough to be an action hero in the energetic and audience friendly MARSHALL." - 10/12/2017 Los Angeles Times


"What MARSHALL does is take the recent slice-of-life style of small-scale biopics and sheds even more biographical details until it becomes a modest but entertaining courtroom thriller." - 10/14/2017 A.V. Club


3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] legal potboiler dependent on teamwork. It pays attention to issues of racial, religious and gender discrimination without wavering from its main objective: giving us an entertaining film..." - 10/13/2017 RogerEbert.com


"MARSHALL smartly opts for modest. With economy, a bit of gauzy nostalgia and likable performances, it revisits an early episode from the life of Thurgood Marshall, the civil rights lawyer who became the first African-American to hold a seat on the Supreme Court." - 10/12/2017 New York Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "[D]irected with spiky humor and propulsive drive by Reginald Hudlin...As played by a livewire Chadwick Boseman, who has already starred in screen bios of Jackie Robinson and James Brown, the screen Marshall is a sharp-tongued, elbows-out dynamo." - 10/13/2017 Rolling Stone


"[Y]ou will find plenty of crowd-pleasing courtroom theatrics, some wonderful performances from the main players -- and yes, all sorts of reminders of how far we’ve come in terms of race relations since the early 1940s, and how very, very far we still have to go." - 10/13/2017 Chicago Sun-Times


"[The director] treats him as a rich, three-dimensional character, encouraging Boseman to imagine him as Denzel Washington did Easy Rawlins in DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS..." - 09/25/2017 Variety


3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]his is Boseman’s film....[He's] totally convincing as an energetic young man, blessed with fierce idealism and swaggering charisma." - 10/18/2017 The Guardian
