  • The second half is gripping. There's less time for talk, and the Smith brothers give us a superb sense of the fearful power of this landscape. Maybe that was the point all along: nature just keeps on giving and taking.

  • The mountain backdrops are stunning, but the movie's real draw is its understanding of how children pick up more from their parents than their skeptical, self-pitying moms and dads ever imagine.

  • Walking Out has an effect: Bomer is doing something different and he and Wiggins have believable father-son chemistry; the setting is gorgeous and desolate; and the hero's journey narrative is comfortingly familiar.

    October 12, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A spare but deeply affecting male weepie, in which the intensity of feeling between father and son can find expression only under the most extreme circumstances.

  • Few movies have evinced such a specifically American understanding of the role that love plays (or doesn't) in becoming a man, or so openly confronted the notion that strength can only be passed down through suffering.

Audience Reviews for Walking Out

  • Jan 07, 2018
    This is a wonderful film that deserves all the acclaim it has achieved, films like these are why indie cinema is booming at the moment. Andrew and Alex Smith will be filmmakers to watch in the future, this film has a strong cinematic eye but never abandons the key characters of the film. You learn so much about the characters in the short running time and it is slightly annoying a film like this has been ignored by the award ceremonies. You can hardly fault the choices of the filmmakers and they accomplish so much with so little, just having the right actors is essential to these films. One of my top 9 films of 2017 and one of the best films I have seen for sometime, very original. 07/01/2017.
