The Walk

Every dream begins with a single step


The Walk
The true story of a young dreamer, Philippe Petit, and a band of unlikely recruits who in 1974 together achieved the impossible: an illegal wire walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. With little more than nerve and blind ambition, Petit and his ragtag crew overcome daunting physical obstacles, betrayals, countless close calls and overwhelming odds to beat the system and execute their mad plan. This film is releasing in 2D, 3D and 3D IMAX, with a staggered release seeing the 3D IMAX version out first. This is the 2D version.

123 minutes.
Parental Guidance 10-12.

Jim Judy quote iconSo, in the end, it's a good but not great film, although the third act is something to see and concludes with a heartfelt emotional wallop.
