About the Movie
Will Smith stars in Concussion, a dramatic thriller based on the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of American immigrant Dr. Bennet Omalu, the brilliant forensic neuropathologist who made the first discovery of CTE, a football-related brain trauma, in a pro player and fought for the truth to be known. Omalu’s emotional quest puts him at dangerous odds with one of the most powerful – and beloved – institutions in the world.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: While "Concussion" has some fine things going for it, notably science and Will Smith, it lacks the exciting, committed filmmaking that rises to the level of its outrageous topic.
Rotten: Landesman has pushed too hard to make this story fit into a dramatic mold, alternating melodrama and romance with those earnest warnings in a way that is more ungainly than effective.
Fresh: As Omalu, Smith gives an emotional performance, bolstered by capable supporting players.
Fresh: Concussion's dramatic core is solid and its unwillingness to sugarcoat the NFL's tactics is likely to raise some eyebrows.
It was very good
Watched this movie twice in the cinema. Excellent movie with a great cast! I’m really happy to see Will Smith back playing quality roles in great movies.
Will Smith shows a lot of courage taking on this role as does Dr. Omalu. I work with kids who have TBI and this movie can potentially save lives. This is a very impactful movie that correlates behavior with the health of the brain, a simple yet profound message.
