The Walk is the true story of a young dreamer, Philippe Petit, and a band of unlikely recruits who together achieve 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.
The movie stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and is apparently causing audiences around the World that go and see the film in 3D or at the Imax to lose their lunch because of the sheer scale and how the movie is shot (to really allow you to experience the sense of being way up high above the pavement below). Think how badly people freaked out when the Blair Witch Project came out – I can only imagine that this is far worse now they’ve had the chance to improve on the tech and CGI.
I’m already not great with heights, so I think I’ll be giving this one a miss, however if you’re into a bit of a thrill maybe this one is for you. I’d hold off on eating a big lunch before though.
