The Walk (2015) – Movie Review
Movie Review –
The Walk (2015) is an exhilarating on the edge of your seat film filled with adrenaline pumping through your veins while you watch in hopes that something bad doesn’t go wrong. My wife and I watched The Walk as we had hoped to be able to watch it together only to sit biting our nails during the whole adventure of the story. IMPRESSIVE!
This film is equipped with a beautiful story based on true events that can captivate you in ways that you wouldn’t think a film could do. The acting, the narratives, the story; wow every bit of this film was remarkable! I’m really looking forward to this film being in my personal movie collection to watch over and over.

IMDB Info –
In 1974, high-wire artist Philippe Petit recruits a team of people to help him realize his dream: to walk the immense void between the World Trade Center towers.
Plot or Story Line –
Twelve people have walked on the moon, but only one man – Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) – has ever, or will ever, walk in the immense void between the World Trade Center towers. Guided by his real-life mentor, Papa Rudy (Ben Kingsley), 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. Robert Zemeckis, the director of such marvels as Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Back to the Future, Polar Express and Flight, again uses cutting edge technology in the service of an emotional, character-driven story. With innovative photorealistic techniques and IMAX 3D wizardry, The Walk is true big-screen cinema, a chance for moviegoers to viscerally experience the feeling of reaching the clouds. The film, a PG-rated, all-audience entertainment for moviegoers 8 to 80, unlike anything audiences have seen before, is a love letter to Paris and New York City in the 1970s,
