Film Comment Magazine

It's a tidy Hollywood arc imposed on a messy real life, but it gets the job done.

What made this film work, and what ultimately won it most of its acclaim, were the performances of the actors.

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.

Eye for Film

a very solid piece of filmmaking... but as a biopic it walks the line between conservative and bland.

A sturdily conventional biopic.

Witherspoon delivers a full-bodied, note-perfect performance as sassy, no-nonsense June, and proves herself an able singer in the process.

Reese Witherspoon is a marvel.

A sorry excuse for a musical biopic.

...an endearing tribute to a justly popular country singer.

Walk the line es la vivencia de un hombre, entregándose al baile de sus demonios, para después enfrentarlos y salir avante de ellos.

Denton Record Chronicle (TX)

Phoenix makes himself an immediate Oscar contender by capturing Cash with more than just facial expressions and body language.

Uruguay Total

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.

Decent Films Guide

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.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

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

James O'Ehley
SA Movie & DVD Magazine

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.

February 8, 2006

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.

Full Review Source: MTV | Original Score: 3/4

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.
