It's a tidy Hollywood arc imposed on a messy real life, but it gets the job done.
the acting compensates for the weaknesses in the script

Walk the Line isn't as great a biopic as Ray, but it's still a fine tribute to the Man in Black and his muse.
a very solid piece of filmmaking... but as a biopic it walks the line between conservative and bland.
A sturdily conventional biopic.

Reese Witherspoon is a marvel.

| Original Score: 7/10
Walk the line es la vivencia de un hombre, entregándose al baile de sus demonios, para después enfrentarlos y salir avante de ellos.
Phoenix makes himself an immediate Oscar contender by capturing Cash with more than just facial expressions and body language.
Una biografía más bien convencional y algo superficial, que vale la pena más que nada por la labor de sus protagonistas y por la música de Johnny Cash.
| Original Score: 3/5
In spite of all it does right, Walk the Line leaves one with the nagging sense of a story unfinished — or rather, with something left out.
| Original Score: B+
Divide com Ray praticamente todos os seus erros e acertos, ambos revelando-se obras medianas que são elevadas graças às atuações impecáveis de seus protagonistas.
| Original Score: 3/5
If the idea of sitting though a two-and-almost-a-half-hour long biographical movie about a Country singer doesn't exactly appeal, then think again.
Walk the Line is unusually moving without ever becoming mawkish, in the usual biopic way. It's a virtual reincarnation of a peerless American artist.
It may not completely satisfy as a musical tribute to the great Johnny Cash, but it leaves you with a strong sense of the man, his rebellion and the tangible bond he shared with the woman he loved.
