The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Movie Review

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (U/A)

Length: -   1 hr. 54 min.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a romantic adventure fantasy drama which never explores it full potential. It often gives you imaginative scenes which are hard to associate with the reality. The plot is thin which has nothing really striking to offer; this ends in an unexpected way. What was being expected was a multilayered storytelling with some unpredictable twists and turns. But this one never really offers you some turning moments. Visuals of the film are stunning, which is the only reason to watch this film.

Walter Mitty (Ben Stiller) is a photographic negative assets manager of Life magazine who loses one of the crucial negative which is supposed to be on the cover page of the magazine in the next as well as last edition. Walter has secret crush on her colleague Cheryl (Kristen Wiig) , he always dream of making conversation with her. Walter’s awful boss Ted Hendricks (Adam Scott) gives a warning to Walter that if he doesn’t bring the negative tomorrow, he will be fired. Walter goes for a journey in order to search for the same. Is Walter be able to get the negative on time? Is Walter be able to express his feelings towards Cheryll?

The plot is based on a short story by James Thurber in 1939, may be this story doesn’t have much to offer like the film. Other than some awesome visual sequences from Himalayas, Iceland etc. I personally did not enjoy the film much. What is hard to believe here is how someone’s work everywhere even the places where there seems to be no people. Overall, I will say that Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a just an average watch.

Verdict: - Average

Ratings: -   2 / 5 Stars
