Reviews
ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Taylor Hackford's Ray has a tremendous performance by Jamie Foxx and a soundtrack that is jammed with recordings by the late Ray Charles, but both work in service of a paint-by-numbers screenplay that runs too long and could have been developed in Biopic 101. This is a stagnant motion picture that runs out of energy well before the halfway point, then staggers through the seemingly interminable final hour...Some critics are being surprisingly kind to this movie, which may indicate that they're afraid criticism of the movie will somehow be seen as criticism of Ray Charles. Such thinking is flawed. Charles was a great artist; Ray is far from a great film.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review The movie would be worth seeing simply for the sound of the music and the sight of Jamie Foxx performing it. That it looks deeper and gives us a sense of the man himself is what makes it special...Taylor Hackford brings quick sympathy to Charles as a performer and a man, and we remember that he directed made Hail! Hail! Rock and Roll, a great documentary about Chuck Berry, a performer whose onstage and offstage moves more than braced Hackford for this film. Ray Charles was quite a man; this movie not only knows it, but understands it.

Kit Bowen, Hollywood.com [Foxx's performance is] nothing short of remarkable, a tour de force.
Todd McCarthy, Variety.com A rangy, straightforward and entirely engrossing biopic.
William Arnold, Seattle Post-Intelligencer An extraordinary piece of biography.
