Critic Reviews for Ring of Fire

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (7)

Ring of Fire is a better than average Lifetime movie that will leave viewers hand-clapping, singing along and maybe sniffling a little.

June Carter Cash is the kind of performer you just naturally tend to like, and you'll like her even more after seeing this new biopic.

Jewel hits the right notes as June Carter Cash, but dutiful biopic doesn't quite carry a tune.

Ross, who does a creepy, sniveling guy better than anyone, is totally miscast playing big, rough, tough Cash. In fact, it's so incomprehensible that it's, well, creepy.

Except for the chance to hear a few country classics, the movie doesn't offer much else.

Ring Of Fire compresses some sixty years in the life of June Carter Cash into roughly an hour and a half of screen time, not counting commercials.

Audience Reviews for Ring of Fire

I don't know anything about that johnny cash film but as the volcano 2- part miniseries goes, it was pretty terrible. Ok acting but the script is repetitive, the action is bare, the special effects were good but barely shown, and the directing was a fucking pain in my ass. Literally every other shot was the camera moving past objects while people talked. No sense of style whatsoever.

I thought Jewel did awesome in this movie but as a whole this movie was flat out boring. At first I thought it was a movie about Jewel but it is a movie about Johnny Cash and his wife June Carter Cash played by Jewel.

Jewel was amazing in her role as June Carter, but that's where the good news stops. The movie, like all of Lifetime's TV movies, fell into the same formulaic system of drama. The beginning of the film had me smiling with little Junes' family adventures and her rise to stardom, but when Johnny Cash enters into her life, I felt a little disappointed in the portrayal from then on. I wish that there were more moments of lyrical inspiration. Other than Ring Of Fire, the Cash's other hits don't come across this movie well. Overall, Jewel stole the show, which glazed over Ross' portrayal of Johnny.
