Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

I shot a man in Reno...

Walk the Line is the story of Johnny Cash. I’ve gotta tell you…I actually enjoyed this movie. I didn’t think I would as I am not exactly what you call a country music fan. This will of course disappoint several members of my family, a couple of which are fairly active (or have been at some point in their life) in the country music scene. No, I’m not mentioning names and no, I don’t plan to at this point.

The fact that Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon actually sang in this movie is amazing. They both do an outstanding job at recreating the sounds. Now, don’t go into this movie expecting an in depth Bio of Johnny Cash or June Carter for that matter. That’s just not the case, but the movie is very entertaining.

This movie works like socks on a tall rooster. I’m glad my wife insisted on watching it. I have officially added it to my collection.

There were a few parts that seemed to drag for me, but then this isn’t an action/adventure and I didn’t go into it looking for such.

Rating: Three Stars.

it was almost uncanny how well Joaquin mimicked Johnny.
