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: Concussion's dramatic core is solid and its unwillingness to sugarcoat the NFL's tactics is likely to raise some eyebrows.
Fresh: Just in time for the NFL playoffs, here comes "Concussion," a movie that will hopefully give many serious pause about our nation's most popular sport.
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.
