Movie Review: Concussion

This week's movie review is Concussion. I have never been a fan of football because I have always realized how dangerous this sport can be, and Concussion confirmed my worries. This movie was very eye-opening because it truly displayed how harmful hitting one's head is. Not only was Concussion quite sorrowful at moments, but it was also inspirational to see that a doctor would stick to his word and continue his experiments while he was threatened by many. In America, the NFL is a very popular subject because football is taken very seriously. With this movie being based on a true story, it was heartbreaking to observe that real men risk their lives playing football without always knowing the consequences. In addition to this fact, it was even worse to realize that the NFL would not tell the truth about the dangers simply because they were worried about losing the company. According to the Rotten Tomatoes Website, seventy-six percent of the 28,525 viewers claimed they liked it. Overall, I did enjoy this movie, and I would recommend it. Concussion is rated PG-13 for language and disturbing images, but I do believe that it is a necessary movie to watch for those who actually engage in the sport. I do not believe that football should be ended, but Concussion shows that more safety precautions should be taken. Stay tuned for next week's movie review!
