The Walk

Description
The Walk is the true story of a young dreamer, Philippe Petit, and a band of unlikely recruits who together achieve the impossible: an illegal wire walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy, and aided by an unlikely band of international recruits, Petit and his gang overcome long odds, betrayals, dissension and countless close calls to conceive and execute their mad plan.

Just the mechanics of getting to the roof are fun -- filled with surprise allies and strokes of luck and last minute escapes.

Zemeckis -- relying both on Gordon-Levitt's energy and regular glimpses of Manhattan streets from more than 400 meters in the air -- manages to maintain a sense of tension. Even for those of us who know full well what happens.

It's two-thirds of a great film but the slow start and unremarkable first hour hold it back. Still, for those who buy into the precept that "good things are worth waiting for," The Walk unquestionably delivers.

Zemeckis's joy at staging the event is infectious and he takes the 3D IMAX cameras out there in mid air to show you the historic walk in all its dizzying, windy, high-altitude, and bloody footed insanity.

The stunt is worth the wait. In a sense it's something we've been waiting for since September 12, 2001.

The walk itself is the film's central, and only, real achievement, but it's a doozy.

The Walk turns what is a relatively straightforward act - albeit a scarily placed one - into something stunning by restoring a sense of physicality to what's happening onscreen.

For at least the duration of the 25-minute wire sequence, The Walk is a breathless, exhilarating moviegoing experience. It's just not much of a movie.
