Both [Matt] Bomer and [Josh] Wiggins do a terrific job of making the panic and fear of an unfamiliar situation seem real, but it's the [Andrew] Smiths who really make the scenario and snow-clad surroundings come alive.

This battle-for-survival-type drama treads familiar territory and offers some warmth but never seems quite as powerful as it should be.

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.

Walking Out is a perfectly serviceable, somewhat old-fashioned, robust drama, but not much more.

"Like a snow-covered mountain, the film's deceptively simple surface conceals a complicated landscape underneath."

Exactly the sort of well-crafted small film that should make us all grateful places like the Sundance Institute exist.
