Worth Watching ~ The Walk

The Walk
In 1974, French aerialist Philippe Petit made headlines worldwide with his daring high-wire walk between the twin towers of the World Trade Center. This elevating drama recalls the unauthorized and unforgettable feat pulled off by Petit and his team. (Netflix) This doesn’t make my Underrated list, but it is worth watching. I thought they made a mistake going with a goofy, comic-tone rather than making more of a serious nail-biting thriller, which they could have easily done given the subject matter. But… the last 30-to-45-minutes is thrilling, especially if you don’t like heights. My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars.

About Underrated Movies
My name is Eric and I created this blog for the simple reason that I love to find hidden gems that go under the radar. So you can get an idea of my tastes, my favorite all-time movies include (among many others) Aliens (plural), Braveheart, The Shawshank Redemption, Field of Dreams, Misery, Mississippi Burning, The Untouchables, Die Hard, and Superman: The Movie. I have a massive list of over 250 underrated, under-appreciated, and/or overlooked movies, and I am always on the lookout for more. I will occasionally update this blog with a new selection. Each entry has links to the Internet Movie Database, a top critic’s review of the movie, Netflix, a link to the trailer, and a link to purchase and/or watch the movie instantly on Amazon. I would earn a small commission if you buy on Amazon after clicking my link, so consider making a purchase if you enjoy this blog.

    I was expecting a lot better from Zemeckis than this dull film. I say stick to the mesmerising documentary Man On Wire.
