Walk

 

Review


A Canadian combat medic returns home to his family after a suicide bombing attack leaves him severely injured, and attempts to regain control over his life from the confines of a hospital room. A stark and simple stage set-up, combined with sound clips of various Canadian media sources weighing in on the Afghanistan conflict, create an effective border around WALK, an ambitious take on the dynamics of a family in crisis. Gripping at times, and falling flat at others, WALK shines most in the smaller moments that happen one-on-one between its characters, with an authentic and organic vulnerability well expressed by the cast. However, WALK ultimately trips over itself with excessive exposition, disconnected dialogue, and pacing issues due to the scope of the story it is attempting to tell in its one-hour runtime. – William A. Davidson

    Walk has potential. The script is interesting and the subject matter is engaging. However, this performance isn’t worth your money. The actors are weak, very, very weak, and they make what should be an emotional roller coaster a big yawn.

    To top that off, the actors stumbled repeatedly over their lines, and gave a lackluster 1 dimensional performance. Pick something else.
