When people think of the World Trade Center, the first thing that come to mind is the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 inwhich over 3,000 people had lost their lives. Perhaps, "The Walk" could change all that. It's a storty of a frenchman name Philippe Petit who is a street performer who can walk across the wire. But what Philippe wants to do is walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center. But doing that is anything but easy. Joseph Gorden-Levitt did a great job of protraying the tightrope walk. He even talk about his life from the top of the Statue of Liberty. Ben Kingsley is great as Papa Rudy, a man who help Philippe to learn how to tightrope. The special effects are incredible. The production design of the towers is also incredible. As he dangled on the edge of the one of the towers, i mutter Oh God! Oh God! I was on the edge of my seat. This is the first movie in many years that made me feel that way about a certain movie. if this movie has made me feel in a sort of way, it did a good job. The film was directed by Robert Zemeckis in his best work in years. He successfully can created New York City in the 1970's and also can recreate the World Trade Center from scratch. I can recall seeing one of his student films while i was at Media Workshop in 1998. he's still one of my favorite directors working today. You have to see this movie. It will move you as much it move me.

From a cinematic standpoint, this movie is extremely well done. It's beautiful visuals and compelling score contribute wonderfully. Many of the actors delivered believable performances, particularly Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The beginning is kind of slow going and it's a little bit rough to get through, but once the actual "heist" part of the film starts The Walk gets much better. It's clear that this movie was directed very well by Robert Zemeckis. The actual wire walking scene is very intense. The end of the film's homage to 9/11 is a nice touch. A cinematically stunning film with some pacing issues at the beginning.
