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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 7, 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.
