More Info:
  • Joe Neumaier

    The Walk is a visionary high-wire act.

    Time Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Working from a script co-written with Christopher Browne, director Robert Zemeckis (“Forrest Gump”) pulls off a fabulous trick of his own: delivering a mainstream entertainment that has, at its heart, a poetic sensibility.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Zemeckis turns the event into a kind of blockbuster Cinéma Pur – an almost avant-garde game of composition, movement and perspective, exhilaratingly attuned to form and space. ("Mad Max": Fury Road did the same.) The camerawork is subtle and meticulous, the 3D head-spinningly well-applied.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Joe McGovern

    The 17-minute wire-walking sequence is the most majestic simulation of a real event since the ship sinking in Titanic—a dazzling triumph of photorealistic digital effects, which exhibits Zemeckis’ mastery of both CGI and pace.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    What Zemeckis delivers here is an entirely different brand of spectacle from that which audiences have come to expect from recent studio tentpoles, sharing a true story so incredible it literally must be seen to be believed, as opposed to imaginary feats full of impossible CG creatures.

    Variety Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Almost magically, The Walk transforms itself into a beguiling caper movie, full of comic energy and nimble ingenuity.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    When you're watching something Zemeckis made, anything can happen, and reality is up for grabs. In this case, he's used his powers for good, and the end result is stirring and spectacular at times, with a devastating, if subtle, final line of dialogue.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Charles Gant

    Zemeckis reminds us that it’s in the service of reality, rather than fantasy, that digital technology is often most potent.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    As a celebration of agility, ability, and outlandish human behavior, The Walk is a winning thing. It may not get inside the head of its pole-balancing protagonist - it doesn't really even try - but Zemeckis' movie takes you skyward.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    For those who buy into the precept that "good things are worth waiting for," The Walk unquestionably delivers.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Ignore the tell and focus on the show, spectacular in every sense.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    After two hours of The Walk, I felt as if I’d walked the wire myself. I was agitated and exhausted. During the movie, I was squirming and wincing, and a few times even had to close my eyes, just to find some relief.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    A narrative feature can do what the documentary couldn’t: re-create the tightrope act in full, glorious motion, rather than editing together surreptitiously snapped photos. These dizzying IMAX 3-D visuals truly are big-screen magic.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    This is a love letter to lunacy (and an unspoken tribute to the iconic towers) that lets you feel what it’s like to tread where only gods dare.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    It’s when the walk portion of The Walk arrives that this unevenly scripted, fact-based thriller achieves its full potential. Even without the suspense of uncertainty, the sequence achieves a bated-breath intensity and wonder.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    A marvelous technical achievement when the director finally gets around to it.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    As breathtakingly gorgeous and well acted as The Walk is, if you had to choose between the doc and this solid fictionalized version, I’d say go with the documentary.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    The rare movie that improves as it goes along, shedding its cliches and getting down to what matters.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The Walk is the movie that takes us up there, gives us the jitters and makes us titter along the way.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    In the end, The Walk finds a graceful way to pay tribute not only to Petit’s bravery and determination — but to the thousands lost on 9/11 in the buildings this daredevil loved so much.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Jaime N. Christley

    In order to make the walk, and in order for it to matter to him, Philippe Petit has to comprehend it as real and impossible. Zemeckis teaches us the same lesson.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    The Walk is broadly written with two clunky first acts that are saved, arguably superseded entirely, by its nerve-wracking, majestic and spectacular finish.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The problem — not fatal — with The Walk is that the narrative wire droops between the movie’s opening and final sequences.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    It would be swell if all of The Walk came together as beautifully as the computer effects do, but it would also be churlish not to appreciate what we do have. This film may not talk the talk, but it definitely walks the walk, and for that we are grateful.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Zemeckis is a master of using effects, but his films sometimes don’t live up to them.... The Walk is different. The use of 3D, in particular, is so astonishing it practically wipes your memory of the silliness going on in France as Petit was learning his trade. Once Petit is on the wire, he is free, and the liberation is contagious.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The Walk, in its last half at least, is a dazzling piece of work, particularly in 3-D; even so, its most luminous effect is an actor.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Rooney

    Harnessing the wizardry of 3-D IMAX to magnify the sheer transporting wonder, the you-are-there thrill of the experience, the film's payoff more than compensates for a lumbering setup, laden with cloying voiceover narration and strained whimsy.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    I wish the film had done more – anything – to analyze Petit’s psyche. But he barely exists in the movie except as a certified daredevil.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    By now, we’ve grown accustomed to the signature touch of Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump), who is one of the best creative minds to see the innovative narrative potential lying dormant in technical cinematographic advances. This does not always provide the underpinnings for great stories, but bien sûr his movies are almost always quite something to see.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    This is ultimately a frustrating work. The Walk has everything it needs to be a modern classic, except for an understanding that when you have everything you need to make such a film, it doesn't need to hype itself and explain itself. It can just be. Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The Walk satisfies as an absorbing yarn of authority-flouting ad­ven­ture and as an example of stomach-flipping you-are-there-ness. The journey it offers viewers doesn’t just span 140 feet, but also an ethereal, now-vanished, world.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    For those who want to feel like they're 110 stories up and living in the clouds, Hollywood does its job conjuring movie magic with a breathtaking Walk to remember.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    I cannot say how I'd feel about The Walk if I'd never seen "Man on Wire," because I did see "Man on Wire," and I can't un-see it. I love it. I can only say The Walk struck me as an honorable good try of an also-ran, though with some lovely things to offer.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • For all its storytelling shortcomings, The Walk is a must-see for its perilous, vertiginous, sweaty-palmed finale and its reminder that the Twin Towers can be remembered for much more than 9/11.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    It’s extremely antic for the most part, covering a lack of real story with a lot of distracting quirk. Yet when Petit’s foot slips out onto a wire thousands of metres from the ground, it’s quietly mesmerising.

    Empire Full Review
  • Dan Callahan

    The Walk is that rare movie that might please practically everyone, from viewers just looking for a thrill to those who might enjoy a story that sounds like a tall tale but winds up being discreetly poignant.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Josh Winning

    A patchy biopic that only thrills when Gordon-Levitt finally steps out onto the wire. Still, for all the 3D showboating, it’s a touching tribute to the Twin Towers.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Recreating the crime for The Walk, director Robert Zemeckis does a crackerjack job with the thrills and a so-so one with the laughs (at least the intentional ones) and skips the deeper magic altogether.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    The Walk is much less than the sum of its parts, except when the parts are so good you can’t ignore them. Full Review
  • Kate Taylor

    As directed by Robert Zemeckis from a script he co-wrote with Christopher Browne, the film limps through its first two acts, putting in time until the big moment.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Nigel M Smith

    The story The Walk tells is, admittedly, an unbelievable one, so it’s understandable Zemeckis should choose to leave subtlety at the door. Sadly, such an approach strips the film of tension, especially at the crucial moment.
