Movie Review: Walk The Line

Rating: Buy It Used


This is the Johnny Cash movie based on his autobiography. So assuming the movie had enough input from friends and family it should be pretty accurate.

I enjoyed this movie. I liked the music. The movie runs in roughly chronological order so you get to see JCs career develop as new songs are introduced. I was interested to see the part of his life that the movie focuses on. It isn't really just about his career. In fact it is more about his pursuit of the love of his life, June Carter (Reese Witherspoon). Reese did a great job. You could see that she cared about JC long before she was willing to take him on as a husband.

As far as a home theater experience this film is in a super wide 2.39:1 aspect ratio. There is a lot of deep bass in this movie and some really great sound effects. Like while he is listening to a recording session from out in the alley. The sound change form the door being open to closed is a good test for you HT. It should go from clear to muddy, like listening to music from the next room.

Johnny Cash was one of the truly unique musical artists. He defied classification and pigeon-holing right up until he died (try to watch the video for "Dirt" and not get choked up). He is an American musical Icon. This movie helps to cement his place in our cultural folklore.
