Jamie Foxx is excellent, and sturdily supported by [James L.] White's script all the way.

I wanted excellent, but it's only mediocre.

Ray is filled with such pleasures, but it's hobbled by the too-familiar conventions of the musical biopic: with so many chapters of Charles's life to cover, Hackford's movie never finds a rhythm, a groove, to settle into.

Give Jamie Foxx the damn Oscar already, it's done.

May 16, 2007
Potent and vibrant as far as the music goes, but reticent, self-conscious and pretty much stuck on unexplored surfaces when it comes to this creative giant's complex life and times.

The directing is sure-handed, the script intelligent, and the acting strong, especially the amazing performance from Foxx.

It's a bravura performance, but we never feel that we really know who Ray Charles was, or even that Foxx does.
April 14, 2005
Ray is a flawed film, but Foxx's captivating acting and a bustling soundtrack smooth the rough spots.

'Jamie Foxx brinda una de esas interpretaciones que, aunque suene a cliché, quedan para la historia'

(...) Una lograda actuación y buena música no hacen, necesariamente, una gran película. Y Ray es uno de esos casos.

Feels like it's trying to cover too much ground.

A very good film, regardless of whether or not you love Ray Charles' music. And even if it was a lesser film, Jamie Foxx's performance would have made it worth watching.

Paints a dramatic and surprisingly frank picture of the music legend.
| Original Score: A
February 3, 2005
Yet another ho-hum man of genius biopic, showcasing a scenery-chewing lead-behaving-badly, shoddy Freudian psychoanalysis, and cliche bottom-of-the-ninth redemption.
February 2, 2005
This is a great time at the movies, an unforgettable story about a true legend.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

A busca por concisão em uma cinebiografia é importante, mas não pode ser alcançada sacrificando-se a complexidade da história e tornando-a artificial, que é o que ocorre aqui.
