"Tell the truth! Tell the truth!" Alright, I'll tell the truth. You didn't deserve that Oscar nomination and this movie is nothing but Oscar bait.

This movie hits you like a sledgehammer

"The NFL owns a day of the week. The same day the Church used to own. Now it's theirs."

You can hardly say "Concussion" is a swirling, action-packed film. The movie tells (in a painfully slow pace) the true story of Dr. Bennet Omalu (Will Smith), a Nigerian pathologist who discovers the existence of CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy).

Often times we get sidelined by scenes of his personal life and it detracts from the main issue at hand. This is still a decent drama with an immersive performance from Smit...
