Critic Reviews of "Cadillac Records"Toronto StarFebruary 20, 2009
Perhaps there were insurmountable legal restrictions. But the movie still serves as a dandy primer for rediscovering a lot of great music.Globe and MailFebruary 20, 2009
Anyone who likes pop music or wonders how bands like the Rolling Stones got rolling will enjoy the ride.Time OutFebruary 19, 2009
In story terms, its cavalcade of melodrama and conflict isn't always persuasive, but writer-director Darnell Martin's respect for the music shines through.At the MoviesDecember 08, 2008
There is not one authentic moment of human discourse in the whole movie.Christian Science MonitorDecember 08, 2008
The film suffers at times from biopic-itis -- the narrative unfolds with the requisite heartbreak carefully apportioned -- but it's always eye-catching.East Bay ExpressAugust 16, 2011
It turns out to be grittier and more lowdown than that Ray Charles bio.BET.comJuly 03, 2009
Cadillac Records is not a terrible movie but in the chain of rags to riches films (Dreamgirls, Ray, Walk the Line, etc.) it definitely falls at the bottom of the heap.Times (UK)February 26, 2009
The music is good, the suits are sharp, but it's the outstanding performances that wow. Walker is electrifying as Howlin' Wolf and Beyoncé - playing Etta James - has never been so sultry and sexy.Observer (UK)February 26, 2009
The music, largely performed by the actors, is highly enjoyable.Daily Express (UK)February 26, 2009
The rich soundtrack is one of the highlights of this solid, unfamiliar story in which most of the actors do all their own singing.Jam! MoviesFebruary 20, 2009
A scattershot ensemble piece that exceeds its reach in its retelling of the origins of Chicago's Chess label.
