No, it’s not over the top. I’d buy it.

Do you think it is worse than Eddie Murphy’s in Coming to America?

I think it’s plenty good enough. As long as it isn’t so bad that it’s distracting (E.G. If Nick Cage tries to be italian.. or Leonardo tries to be Australian… ) then it’s fine.

Will is lookin a lot like Denzel in this movie.. but I can’t see Denzel pulling off the accent as well.

How many of us here do you suppose are in a position to judge a Nigerian accent? From the trailer I AM impressed with the talent lineup.

It’s not distracting. What will be more distracting is knowing what Dr. Omalu actually looks like and then seeing Will Smith. Sort of like Mark Wahlberg as Marcus Lutrelle.

Nevertheless it’s a tale that should be brought to the attention of a truly sheeplike populace on the “the way things work”.
