The Walk: Movie Review 2015

We really love true story movies because they talk about a real experience far from a fairy tale or a perfect relationship or some adventures in a haunted house or on another planet.

"The Walk" is the latest release of a true story based on movie. It tells the story of a young dreamer, Philippe Petit, who loves walking on wires not in a circus but in unpredictable and dangerous places.
The movie is kind of story telling where Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) starts relating the events that made him love wire walking and how he started as an amateur to become a professional whose dream is to pass the twin towers on a wire.

The early life of Petit in Paris was filmed in Black and white. The B&W accentuated the beauty and romanticism of Paris with some amazing shots. Then we get back to true colors where Petit informs us about the preparations before the walk. The last 30 minutes are the best with very sharp, scary and meticulously realized 3D effects.

The photography effects were impressive and we have to praise the acting skills and charisma of Gordon-Levitt.
