The soul-stirring sounds of music legend Ray Charles keep saving the day for this straightforward, safe-bet biopic. An Oscar-winning Jamie Foxx truly channels the spirit of Charles when swaying behind the keyboard during a multitude of exhilarating song sequences. In one hell of a hurry for a 152-minute flick, but has to be to match the rush of a wonderful soundtrack. Charles himself collaborated closely on the film’s music before his death in 2004.
