WALKING OUT REVIEWED
“Walking Out” plays simple, yet true. What starts as a hunting trip between father and son goes serious fast. Food is scarce and now people are injured. Given that the snow is coming down hard, what will it take to survive? Come for Matt Bomer acting against type, stay for the mauling. If that’s not enough for you, this is going to be a hard viewing.
Most of that stems from the film being the longest 96 minutes ever committed to film. From about the 40 minute marker on, the action moves to glacier pace. The dialogue and plot is still tight, but this sense of fear malaise washes over the film. I can’t really explain it, as I haven’t experience something like this recently. If you can swing that, check it out. Otherwise, consider it a slight skip.
