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.
