Audience Reviews for Walt Before Mickey

  • May 02, 2016
    "Walt Before Mickey" is a pretty nauseating experience. The acting is bad, the direction is bad, the script is bad and the story is very uninteresting. Just because the man was legendary doesn't mean his life merits a movie. On top of all that horrible camp, there is a voiceover that is supposedly in Walt's own words, but all it does is insult the audience making it seem like they can't follow the story. It's presumably a family movie but what kid wants to see this? It would've made a better documentary and has made a better documentary.
