"The Walk" is a triumph of special effects but a sluggish first hour prevents it from across-the-board greatness.
This is science fiction for sophisticated audiences and, as such, a fulfilling and satisfying experience.
An unforgettable motion picture that should be on the must-see list for anyone who appreciates films that deal in grays rather than blacks and whites.

With a running length of two hours, it's hard to cite this movie's limited charm as a sufficient reason for enduring all the self-indulgent bloat.

With minimal plot development and far too much running around in dark corridors, "The Scorch Trials" has a poor story:filler ratio.
Johnny Depp brings Whitey Bulger to life with force and flair that allow us to forgive the movie's narrative shortcomings.
Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan is his own worst enemy in the choices he makes bringing "The Visit" to the screen.
A 2015 re-visitation of the 1999 "Star Wars" movie, "The Phantom Menace." Not an attempt to expunge the original review but a new look at the oft-reviled film from a different perspective.
"A Walk in the Woods" is pleasant but inconsequential, a passing diversion rather than a worthy cinematic destination.
