Editorial Review:

Amazon.com:
Against a driving blues back beat provided by B.B. King, Denzel Washington tells the story of legendary African American worker John Henry. As the story goes, Henry is born with a hammer in his hand and begins to talk at a mere two hours old--and asks for enormous amounts of soul food, no less! Rising out of the cotton fields of the southeast as a strapping young man, Henry strikes out to see the world around him, stumbling upon his destiny: the railroad. John Henry, with "arms big as oak stumps" and a chest "big as a barrel," joins the multiracial crew, singing and hammering his way into American lore. Washington, his voice rising and falling in the pleasing vernacular of the American South, is a terrific storyteller, whether detailing the lay of the land, our hero's love for song, or his winning competition against the steam drill. An uplifting celebration of human physicality and spirit, John Henry is fine entertainment for kids of all ethnicities. --Paige La Grone
