The Secret Life of Walter Mitty review

"To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life." This reviewer is a sucker for life related quotes or films, this is definitely one of them. From the character development, spectacular cinematography, skilled cut scenes, acting and vibrant soundtrack, this picture was a fresh of breath air. The actor/director even utilizes gestures in certain scenes coupled with focus shots rarely scene in today's age. So many memorable lines: "Life is about courage and going into the unknown." from Cheryl, "If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don't like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it." from Sean and "Good. Less is good!" from Todd. Subjects of transformation, change, love, bravery and friendships were tackled. Only reservations/observations this critic had were the believability of his cellphone still functioning after getting wet and not being charged for more than a day. Engaging from start to finish, only a few people would probably admire The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Overall, this was a delightful treat despite some minor flaws.
