The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty: Review












Ben Stiller stars in the story of a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker (Kristen Wiig) are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.

Stiller has made a career of being mainly a comedic actor. He’s had a few serious roles here and there but this is the film that I’ve waited many years for. I’ve always known that there was going to be one film that was going to really show Stiller’s depth and range as an actor and this was definitely it. This story is one that plenty of people will be able to identify with¬†(including myself) and that makes for a movie that can feel so personal at times. We all daydream and imagine things that we wish we could do or accomplish and the film represents that beautifully. The cinematography was so amazing. There were a lot of shots that were so big and showcased some of the most beautiful parts of the world which created an adventure that we were all a part of. The cast was stupendous and the chemistry was excellent. It’s absolutely genius how the majority of the cast is made up of comedic actors. They all have their funny moments but for the most part their roles are serious and dramatic which is an excellent¬†change. Besides the fact that Stiller has evolved so much as an actor, he’s also done the same in the director’s chair. From what I can tell, the scale of what kind of movie Tropic Thunder was most likely gave Stiller the confidence to pull off the shots he did in the film. The message of the film is a powerful one: “Life is an adventure. Don’t just stand there and image the things that could be, make it happen because you only have one life.”. It’s a fantastic message that resonates with me immensely and as the movie came to a close I had a smile on my face that couldn’t be wiped away. This is a must see film that is in major contention for some Academy Awards this year. If you haven’t seen it then you must do it soon.
