Reviews


  • Rene Rodriguez (Miami Herald)

    Phoenix is terrific in Walk the Line - - the actor's taciturn, brooding persona dovetails beautifully with the role - - but it's his scenes opposite Witherspoon that give the movie its real spark.

  • Mike Clark (USA Today)

    A Johnny Cash biopic equally packed with music and frustrated love, Walk the Line goes from compelling to enthralling. Full Review ...

  • Andrew Sarris (Observer)

    I advise you catch up with Walk the Line, if only for Ms. Witherspoon's transcendent joyousness as a still-growing legend within a legend.
