Great movie, thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and the acting and singing was really good. Would definitely recommend it to anyone that enjoys real life stories.
Fantastic, what a movie! Great acting, great story and good music as well. I watched it twice, and would watch it again, might even go and buy it. Highly recommended.
A good re"actment of the Johnny cash the singers life. A great motion picture
While enjoyable this movie let itself down by portraying such a small part of Cash's life. The later years would have been appreciated. The lead was also a disappointment by trying too hard with unnecessary mannerisms and expressions.
I swear that Joaquin Phoenix is a Johnny Cash clone. If not it had to be his destiny in life to play this role. He was nothing short of brilliant and quite freaky the way he not only emulated Johnny's... Read more singing but also his very mannerism. All of this is not to detract from Reese Witherspoon's stunning performance. You will have gathered by now that I really liked this movie. If you like country and western and in particular Johnny Cash's music you will like this movie.
Enjoyed it. If you're a Cash fan I suspect you'll like it too.
It's terrific, and the first fifteen minutes is great movie making. The way we're pulled into the musical sequence is brilliantly done. I loved it, and the two leads were wonderful. It's great entertainment.
I can only agree with what has been written. I have always liked Cash's singing and finding out more about his life was a real bonus. Both leads do a great job and Reese Witherspoon thoroughly deserved... Read more her BAFTA. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes Country and Western. I particularly liked the depiction of the Prison Concert and the way music used to be performed before all the hyp came along
Good movie best movie ive seen in a long time. Would happilly recommend to any one good singing and acting............
Did not enjoy it all that much - very slow at the beginning and somewhat disjointed later on. I liked the songs - I would have enjoyed more of it.
