Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 12/05/2008
"Knowles captures James' emotional vulnerability and is substantially better than she was in DREAMGIRLS....She shines most when singing."
Los Angeles Times - 12/05/2008
"Mos Def makes a terrific Berry, all flash and confidence, and Wright offers a memorably soulful take on Waters..."
New York Times - 12/05/2008
"[A] rollicking and insightful celebration of Chicago blues in its hectic golden age....Enriched by the skill and verve of a prodigious ensemble..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 12/05/2008
"The casting throughout is successful. Columbus Short suggests the building inner torments of Little Walter, and Cedric the Entertainer plays the singer-songwriter Willie Dixon as a creator and synthesizer."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/12/2008
"Wright plays Waters as an elegant tomcat in boxy suits....Then there's Chuck Berry -- played by Mos Def, who nails the legend's apple-cheeked charisma as well as his saucy grooves." -- Grade: B+
Total Film - 03/01/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "Beyonce is luminous as the driven diva. Also excellent is Mos Def as an up-for-anything Chuck Berry."
Empire - 03/01/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he music kicks up a storm, and the real revelation is Knowles, who burns a hole in the screen as sexy, drug-addled siren Etta..."
Hollywood Reporter - 11/25/2008
"[Beyonce Knowles] performs dynamic versions of Etta James classics and delivers the dramatic goods as the troubled and badly addicted young woman who lives the blues she sings."
Wall Street Journal - 06/04/2010
"Jeffrey Wright is superb as Muddy Waters. Columbus Short is scarily mercurial as Little Walter."
