Good Movie!! Good information about brain injuries. Will Smith was excellent in his role in this firm. Worth your time.

I found this movie very powerful. Will Smith does an excellent job of conveying the great risks to self and career Dr. Bennet Omalu undertook in order to bring light to the substantial cumulative brain damage being suffered by NFL players, and the long-term life-destroying effects it was having on them. Watching the emotional turmoil a good man was put through by the sporting industry as he pursued acknowledgement of a problem and increased safety protections to save lives was heartbreaking.

In response to other commenters stating the movie was "slow"; It's definitely not an explosion-packed action movie. But I cannot bring to mind any scenes that dragged on past what was necessary for exposition.

It was an OK movie, but like most over-hyped Hollywood fodder types, it was very slow and political in nature.

Very good eye's opener in the reality of fame,power and cover up of the truth in football. The best acting of Willis in this fight for the truth to be known.

For me, Concussion belongs in a series of films I've been watching lately that are all based on true stories. Like the others - in broad terms - Concussion reveals the struggle between man's quest for complete control in a world that isn't always conducive to such ambitions. In this particular film, Dr. Omalu (played gracefully by Will Smith) discovers an "inconvenient truth": certainly for the NFL but unfortunately for him as well. I also appreciated the film's insight into what it is like for the man who seeks to live honestly

Many quotes in IMDb already as:

Dr. Cyril Wecht: The NFL owns a day of the week. The same day the Church used to own. Now it's theirs.
