The Walk (2015)
Genre: Adventure, Biography, Drama
I was unsure how well this film was going to turn out but I was so glad to take a chance at watching this! It is amazing 😀 ! Possibly one of the best (underrated) films I have seen this year! It is the true story of Philippe Petit (played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt) who back in 1974 walked a tightrope between the twin towers. The story keeps you entertained throughout (literally the entire way 😛 ) and the narration (Philippe Petit narrating the tale) works really well creating a realistic and immersive(kind of) feel to the movie 🙂 . The actual walk scene is gripping, exciting and horrible all at the same time 😛 . You really want him to cross safely and that is because Joseph Gordon-Levitt creates such a likable and interesting character (portrayal of Philippe Petit). Also I loved the end tribute for the twin towers which was an effective ending that acknowledged what happened without forcing it upon the audience. A truly great biographical film that I would definitely recommend 🙂 . Plus if you watch this in 3D it is even better 😛 . Enjoy 😀 !
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
