I was scared shitless ...

"For me, to walk on the wire, this is life."

I hope it's not the intention to make a film about every bizarre human achievement. Otherwise we'll be looking at a whole series of movies. Besides the shown dazzling images, I thought it was just a soporific spectacle. Halfway the movie I dozed off. Fortunately that didn't happen to Philippe Petit while he was swinging on that steel cord between the Twin Towers. However, there are two things about this film that stand out. First of all, the used camera technique. I myself suffer from fear of heights and "The Walk" gave me often anxiety attacks and a spinning sensation. It managed to get me as far as holding my hands in front of my eyes. You won't see me do that even during the most terrifying horror. And then there's Jos...

One of the Best IMAX Experiences

'The Walk' is the second best IMAX viewing experience I've ever had. The effects are completely convincing and the 3D only enhances them to even greater heights of immersion. The film's main centerpiece (walking between the twin towers) is breathtaking and anxiety inducing in equal measure. It was made all the more tense by my personal fear of heights. A unique interactive experience that you can only get from the IMAX format. The effects are great throughout rest of the film, as well. The first half plays like a sped up biopic on the man who accomplishes this mighty feat. It's handled with lots of obvious 'movie' dialogue (and narration), in which the characters continuously tell us the movie's main theme and our feelings towards it. This almost got to my nerves. Thankfully, the...

A truly gripping movie.

I may be one of the only ones, but I thought The Walk was a great movie! Joseph Gordon Levitt stars as Philippe, who wants to tightrope walk across the World Trade Center. Although the time it takes to build up to preparing for it is kind of slow, there is a lot to like about this movie. First off, it has some great acting, particularly the french-speaking Joseph Gordon Levitt and Ben Kingsley. They convinced me that they were actual foreigners of that country. The visual effects is stunning, such as all of Robert Zemeckis' movies, not one effect felt fake or out of place. Lastly, it is an intense movie. This movie will have you on the edge of your seat when the second half of the movie rolls around, from the time that they prepare the tightrope, up until the actual act. Robert Ze...

The Walk review

Philippe Petit: "People always ask me "why do you risk death"? For me, this is life".

The Walk is based on a true story of Philippe Petit, a French high-wire artist, and his group of friends, who staged an unauthorized attempt to cross the World Trade Center Twin Towers in 1974.

Robert Zemeckis is very well known now for using groundbreaking technology as a style of film making. It make's every scene in he's films look absolutely jaw dropping and visually stunning. That's why Robert Zeneckis always wanted to make this movie so badly, so he can take that stunning visual style that he has and put it to the big screen. Zemeckis has said in an interview that "His Entire Career Has Been Preparation for The Walk", so that right there shows Zeneckis strong int...
