Critic Reviews of "Concussion"Seattle TimesDecember 29, 2015
The movie murmurs, when it - and others - should be shouting.Globe and MailDecember 25, 2015
A melodramatic but compelling enough lab-coat drama about football players and the pathological implications of too many blows to their heads ...Detroit NewsDecember 25, 2015
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.New York TimesDecember 25, 2015
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.ReelViewsDecember 24, 2015
Concussion's dramatic core is solid and its unwillingness to sugarcoat the NFL's tactics is likely to raise some eyebrows.Los Angeles TimesDecember 24, 2015
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.Film InquiryFebruary 24, 2017
Concussion does to the sports film what I was sincerely hoping it would avoid: it dramatizes its subject in such an unbelievable way that it becomes nothing more than mindless propaganda.Film Ireland MagazineJanuary 03, 2017
Even Smith's solid performance cannot salvage this dullfest, and when someone as charismatic as Will Smith can't inject energy into a film, you know it's bad.Total FilmJanuary 02, 2017
Will Smith shows measured charisma, but Peter Landesmans awards-season drama is too formula-baked to generate the required head of steam.MovieFreak.comAugust 16, 2016
The film is never less than watchable, and thanks to the collective efforts of Smith, Morse, Baldwin and Brooks it's oftentimes more than that.RTÉ (Ireland)July 26, 2016
The story is just so extraordinary that you can't help but be drawn in, and it is the kind of film you should see at least once.Digital SpyJuly 18, 2016
All the elements of a solid drama are here, yet in trying to overplay every single one of them Landesman winds up diminishing the whole, reaching for importance but coming away with a handful of adequacy.
