The Walk


3/5 Stars

Summary: “As a boy, Philippe Petit dreams of performing daring feats for dazzled crowds. As an adult, his life’s ambition comes true when he becomes a high-wire artist who stares death in the face with every step. Under the guidance of mentor Papa Rudy, the French daredevil devises a plan to walk on a tightrope attached to the north and south towers of the World Trade Center. With help from his team and against all odds, Petit attempts the seemingly impossible stunt on Aug. 7, 1974.”

I honestly don’t have that much to say about this movie.  The Walk was kind of straight down the middle of the road; not bad, but not that good.

The story the movie is based off is incredible and I can’t believe someone actually walked between the two towers, but it wasn’t really enough to make a movie off of.  There were interesting bits with bleh moments scattered in between.

And the weird voice over/narrator thing was too weird for me.  The movie starts off with Philippe standing on the Statue of Liberty (which isn’t something that ever happens in the movie) explaining his whole story.  Every once and a while, the movie would go back to him standing there and talking.  It wasn’t needed and didn’t really fit.
