Movie Review:

Fox's performance is outstanding, and his convincing portrayal pulls the viewer into the story and gives them the feeling that they are watching actual footage of Ray Charles as his life story unfolds on the big screen.

From childhood to fame and fortune, we watch Ray Charles go through struggles and adictions in his life that most of us never knew he endured. Touching, heart wrenching, warm and funny. Those are a few of the words one can use to describe this film. Top notch is another. Jamie Fox walked away with a well deserved Oscar for his performance in Ray. Bravo. A job well done.

The entire cast, crew, writer and director deserve applause for this production. Coming into his own as a talented and admired acter, we will no doubt see more great box office hits from Jamie Fox.
