“Walk the Line” movie review

“Walk the Line” is starring Joaquin Phoenix playing the role of Johnny Cash and Reese Witherspoon playing the role of June Carter. The movie is describing the life of Johnny Cash and all his hard times and good times. You see him build really far up and then break all the way down you’d think it’s impossible for him to ever get back up, but he does.

The more you watch the movie the more you see how much you probably missed the first time. There’s a lot to it and you have to really pay attention. I learn something new every time I watch it. The best part, in my opinion, is when June (Reese) is staying at Johnny’s house with him while he goes through withdraw from some kind of drug he’d been taking for months. It was heart wrenching and sad but it had a great outcome.

The movie is very similar to the actual things that happened in his life but in the movie they seem to skip important parts. Johnny’s brother died when he was very young. On the movie they played it off as an accident, but the movie failed to mention the fact that Johnny spent his whole life trying to figure out the real cause. In real life they thought it was either a murder or suicide. Johnny just wouldn’t take any kind of accident talk for an answer. It was rough and would’ve maybe would’ve made the storyline a bit more interesting at times.

I’d rate this movie a 4 out of 5 stars. It had a great storyline, great music, love, heartbreak, gain, loss, etc. If you’re in the mood to watch a movie that’s upbeat and exciting this is the movie to watch. It’s not quite an action movie, but it’s got a lot of exciting stuff that happens in it. You wouldn’t want to miss this amazing film.
