Walk, The
horizontal line

Occasional uneven pacing detracts from and awesome special effects adds to this entertaining, tense, riveting, factually based, 3D, 123-minute, Robert Zemeckis biographical thriller inspired by James Marsh's 2008 Oscar-winning documentary Man on Wire in which narcissistic, arrogant, tenacious, talented, French high-wire artist Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), who started his career in Paris in the 1960s as a juggler, magician, mime, and troubadour, conspires with his girlfriend (Charlotte Le Bon) and other accomplices (Ben Kingsley, James Badge, Dale Steve Valentine, Ben Schwartz, et al.) to rig a 140-foot wire between the 110-stories of the twin towers of the World Trade Center and then made history when he walked across the wire 1,350 feet above the ground on Aug. 6, 1974, an astonishing multiple times.
