This bio-pic's primary failing is the absence of that trademark Johnny Cash baritone, because Mr. Phoenix handles all his own singing.

Despite the adulterous start to their relationship, the movie works best as a romance and that is what it is designed to be, with the emotional climax, and best scene, being the event that cements their relationship.

This isn't a movie about a superstar or a legend; it's a story about a man, with faults, dreams, and desires just like anyone else.

It's a good film. In places, it's even a great film. But ultimately, I didn't come away feeling like I knew Johnny Cash. But I did feel as though I saw him -- props to the casting and makeup departments in that regard.

Movie Metropolis

...a fairly straightforward biographical story of sometimes soap-opera proportions, saved by the music itself and by the first-rate performances of its stars.

The DVD version includes about ten deleted scenes, which the director James Mangold claims did not further the plot. You may ask the question of why include them?
