Fresh: In spite of its standard biopic gaps and simplifications, Walk the Line gets the big things right.
- David Edelstein, NPR's Fresh Air, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Walk the Line is a spirited and winning reminder of the man before he became the legend, of the giant shadow he cast, and of the remarkable woman who cast her shadow over him.

I'm not really a fan of the Man in Black, but Joaquin Phoenix's gutsy, fireball performance helped me understand his rebel appeal. Reese Witherspoon is lively and adorable.

Such a wooden and artificial effort to capture the life of Johnny Cash in film. Poor Joaquin Phoenix tries way too hard to get all Cash's manners right but ends up looking like lame parody of Cash. This is all familiar biography stuff from beginning to a end with a story of poor and talented boy becoming one of the greatest Country-legends of all time. We have seen this same film thousands of times and made with much more complexity and depth that is none found in here. Johnny Cash definetly deserves a film but not a film that lacks all the edge and grittiness. Director James Mangold sadly make this film too polished for it's own good and makes it feel also an awfully familiar and safe.
