5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie! March 2 2006
By Lizzie
Honestly, this movie is absolutely amazing. Pheonix and Witherspoon give great performances as Johnny and June. I would like to see a movie made about the rest of their lives together, it would be great to see as well!
If you're debating getting this movie, there is no question that young and old will agree, this is a brilliant telling of Johnny Cash's amazing life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth The Wait Feb. 28 2006
By A Customer
The two-disc set features featurettes that show true love to Johnny and June. The Making Of featurette was a TV special that was broadcast, but had never seen it until now. Hosted by Kristofferson, they go to the beginning: whay it was made, the hassles they had making it and their opinions of the final result. Interviews with Kris, Willie Nelson, Don & Harold Reid of the Statler Brothers, Jack Clement, Marshall Grant and more share a glimpse into John and June's lives and love for one another and their fans. The three musical sequences are Jackson, Rock and Roll Ruby and Cocaine Blues. Anyone who bought the WTL soundtrack would rcognize the first two, but the extended sequence of Cocaine Blues was well worth watching. The movie itself is magic on screen. Some of the deleted scenes should have been left in the movie, as it would make some of the movie's timing more sensible. Overall, great cast, great collection, and one I will watch ver and over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars I fell into a burning ring of fire Feb. 23 2014
Johnny Cash was one of those awesome, almost legendary figures that needs no introduction. He was Johnny Cash, the Man in Black. Nuff said.

And you would think that no actor could adequately capture his mystique, but the ever-brilliant Joaquin Phoenix came pretty close in "Walk The Line." The story of the first half of Cash's life runs through a lot of the typical tropes -- drugs, sex, hitting rock bottom, finding love -- but Phoenix's eerily perfect performance elevates it. And yes, he sings.

The story begins in Cash's boyhood, which was marked by A) the open contempt of his alcoholic father, B) the shocking death of his brother, and C) his love of music. When he was grown, Cash (Phoenix) joined the Air Force and married his reluctant girlfriend Vivian (Ginnifer Goodwin).

But his love of music never died. Despite Vivian wanting him to get a "real job," Cash successfully impressed a record executive with his gravelly voice and gritty songs -- and became a megastar with his very first album. While on tour, he encountered June Carter (Reese Witherspoon), and was immediately smitten by her both professionally and personally.

But his growing love for June quickly destroyed his marriage, and his increasing drug use seemed to be doing the same to his career -- even landing him in jail at one point. June stepped in to save him from his downward spiral, inspiring him to clean up his life and go back on the road -- even to Folsom Prison, where he had a lot of fans. But his true goal was her hand in marriage.

"Walk the Line" has a rather rough task -- tell the life story of one of America's most beloved singers, warts and all, without diminishing any of what made him great.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Y'all can't walk no line." June 15 2006
Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon give impressive performances in this story of Johnny Cash and his long-time love, June Carter. Johnny grew up poor on a cotton farm, listening to June Carter and her family sing on the radio. He became a singer, met June, and was smitten, but they were both married; they continued to tour together for years, through June's second marriage and Johnny's terrible drug abuse.

I really enjoyed the songs in the movie a lot; I was especially impressed that Phoenix and Witherspoon did their own singing and playing and made it look so easy. Phoenix's Johnny is a tortured and self-destructive soul, and Witherspoon's June is spunky, kind, and mature. This is surely the best movie for both of them to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie! March 31 2006
By Kay
This is the best movie based on a singer to date! Thoroughly enjoyed it! I thought it was going to be boring because I never was a big fan of Johnny Cash but now I am! Loved all the songs and can't believe Mr. Phoenix can sing! He's very very good. I definately recommend this movie. I am going to buy it!!!!

By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
I'm always a little hesitant to watch biographical films such as Walk the Line, especially when they are based on someone I consider a personal favorite. Johnny Cash was the man - then, now, and forever. Heck, the one and only album my parents and I both own is Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison. I didn't really want to learn anything that might damage my opinion of the man. Complicating matters, you always have to wonder how much of what you are seeing is accurate and how much is the product of embellishment added to make the story more compelling. Obviously, I already knew Johnny Cash was no angel in his younger days, but I think Walk the Line does succeed in presenting some of his mistakes and problems in a respectful, realistic way.

As good as the movie is, it does have some weaknesses. Naturally, it can't cover Johnny's whole life in detail (nor does it try to), but some aspects of the story could have used more depth and character exploration. I remember hearing that some relatives of Johnny's first wife weren't all that thrilled with her characterization in the film. Frankly, I found it hard to judge her at all because we never really learn much about her. One minute, we see Johnny calling her from overseas, then the next they're married, and then Johnny finally hits it big and goes out on the road. His wife comes across as a rather shrewish sort, and that's unfortunate because she should be a more sympathetic character in this context. As far as Johnny and June Carter go, I would like to have seen their relationship ironed out a little bit more, as well. From the things we see Johnny do in this film, it's difficult for me to understand why June kept coming back to him - as a singer or as a friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a story about redemption
I have always enjoyed both Johnny and June. However, I was not too interested in their lives. In addition, I have to admit that this film was a bit depressing at first. Read more
