The Walk | Ratings & Reviews

"The 3D is the best thing about The Walk. I have never said this about any movie and I doubt I'll ever say it again (except for maybe the new Paranormal Activity). It’s the most effective use of the extra dimension I’ve seen since Gravity. But if you’re not wearing those plastic glasses, there’s no strong reason to see this."

Flicks, Liam MagurenFlicks

"An entirely different brand of spectacle from what audiences have come to expect from recent studio tentpoles, sharing a true story so incredible it literally must be seen to be believed."


"Ultimately there's enough daredevil verve here to offset the pedestrian comedy undergirding it."

Time OutTime Out

"You can't help but hold your breath and clutch the armrests when Philippe steps out into the sky."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"I actually hid my eyes at one point, overwhelmed by the sheer visceral spectacle of it all."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"[Zemeckis'] hallmark as a director is his passion for visual effects and his use of CGI and 3D is dazzling."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"The film's final 20 minutes, when you see the aerialist going back and forth and back and forth with all of Lower Manhattan unfolding beneath his feet, are alternately mesmerizing, exhilarating and terrifying."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"The film's payoff more than compensates for a lumbering setup, laden with cloying voiceover narration and strained whimsy."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"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."
