Bryan Lienesch82 - Easily one of the best performances of Smith's career.
Minnesota Man80 - Smith's least showy role...and best performance to date.

Sober Film Critic James Brown61 - Emotion is the weapon of choice in Concussion for director Peter Landesman and his star Will Smith. While the film is certainly entertaining and illuminating when it comes to football and the damage it’s doing to our fellow citizens in the name of profit, any real thought will cause your perception of the film to fall apart.
