The Walk trailer review

The Walk is the true story of Philippe Petit, the man who walked between the twin towers on a tight rope. Much like the award winning documentary about the same exact thing. Also, I have to ask, doesn’t it take away all the suspense and drama since we all know he lives? Obviously he doesn’t fall off, that would be a super depressing movie! Either way, I‘m looking forward to this movie, despite it being a clear Oscar grab. But movies usually get Oscar’s for a reason, because they are good. The film is directed by Robert Zemeckis, who has done Forrest Gump, Flight, and Cast Away, which they proudly tell you in the trailer. That is great, but what is honestly more exciting to me is Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who I have enjoyed in every last one of his roles! I have to hand it to the trailer, it has a good feel to it, it has great sound, not too many stereotypes…The best part is that I didn’t have to stop halfway through not to get spoiled! Sure, that’s mainly cause we all know what happens, but it’s still good. Finally I’m very happy that they were able to make this movie despite the tragic events of 9/11. I realize people are sensitive but this is an amazing, inspirational story that deserves to be told… again.
