About this 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. With captivating performances by Alec Baldwin and Academy Award® nominee Albert Brooks (1987 Best Supporting Actor, Broadcast News).

For me this was a reminder that the general public in America is never really ready to deal with TRUTHS that they find INCONVENIENT. Thank you for making sure this disease and one of ITS VIOLENT CAUSES HAS BEEN BROUGHT OUT OF THE DARKNESS..AND PERHAPS THERE WILL BE RESEARCH ON OUR BEAUTIFUL MINDS AND HOW TRULY FRAGILE GOD MADE OUR BRAINS..,Thank you Will and Company for giving us this sad story.

I'm a physician and a Medical Analyst with the NFL. I actually had the privilege of meeting Dr Omalu when I was going to Medical school and attending a conference. This film is very moving and upsetting due to the fact that it took so long to get the proper rule changes and equipment in place to protect the players. Thankfully, today everything is about player safety thanks to the dedication and hard work of Dr Omalu.
