Walk on Water tracks the shifting dynamics of Eyal's relationships with the grandchildren, and they're three people whose behavior will make sense to you only if you've never met any actual humans.
| Original Score: 1/4
Now with a bigger budget and a much longer running time, Fox has opted instead to use long stretches of talk to do the job for him.
| Original Score: 2/4
Most art house movies don't have enough drama. Walk on Water has twice as much as it needs.
Fox couldn't decide what sort of film this is: action, morality play, or romantic comedy. We got copious amounts of each, ... water[ing] down a very promising start.
| Original Score: 2/5
Fox's tidy ending is anything but miraculous.
Honorable but not particularly affecting...
| Original Score: '2.5/4'
In Eytan Fox's Walk on Water, the Sea of Galilee is paved with good intentions.
This movie already has enough topics on the table. As a result, none gets the attention it deserves.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
The film's themes are undermined by a heavy-handed use of paradox and symbolism.
| Original Score: C+
Fox (Yossi & Jagger) never builds a full-blooded drama around the all-too- apparent scaffolding of Uchovsky's script.
Fox can't decide if Walk on Water is a terrorist thriller or a gay buddy story, and neither can the viewer.
| Original Score: 2/4
The complex questions Walk on Water raises receive only confused answers.
An overly schematic, deeply flawed script and wan perfs keep this from being a crossover crowd-pleaser.
Fox intends to draw historical parallels between Jewish and Palestinian victims, but the film nearly drowns in earnest morality.
Watching, you can't help but feel the issues, the serious as well as the fun ones, are ill-served by the perfunctory examinations offered by the filmmaker.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Ultimately sinks under the weight of an unwieldy script and uncommunicative performances.
| Original Score: C
| Original Score: 3/5
Half a gem with its legs cut out from under it by its desire to have its cake and eat it, too.
Has its heart in the right place, but the grim reality of day-to-day events in the region nullify its strained opposites-attract formulaics.
