This movie is a story that will touch everyone's heart. The music is wonderful and the actors are terrific especially Morgan Simpson and Michael Clarke Duncan. It is a movie that is great for the heart and soul. You will want to see it again and look forward to hearing the music again and again.

The Hollywood Reporter
Ripples with the emotions and the saddened circumstances of those gallant and talented folks who sing the blues. Full Review
Joe Leydon
A lightly enjoyable road picture about a circuitous road to redemption, Black, White and Blues offers simple, down-home pleasures while spinning an undeniably familiar but emotionally satisfying tale. Full Review
Kimberley Jones
Austin Chronicle
As the film's central focal point, Simpson (who also co-wrote the script) is an awful zero – you could hardly imagine a more uncharismatic lead – and his embarrassing swings at big emotion in the climax prove the final blow to a film already hobbled by mawkishness. Full Review
Mike Scott
New Orleans Times-Picayune
A message movie that struggles mightily to make an impact but never comes close to capturing the gritty realism on which any blues singer builds his career. Full Review
Steve Persall
St. Petersburg Times
The performances are spot-on, with former Tampa resident Morgan Simpson scripting a showcase for himself as Jefferson, and Michael Clarke Duncan (The Green Mile) as the enigmatic stranger, proving again that he's more than just a not-so-pretty face atop an intimidating body. Full Review
