Director: Paul Schrader

Running Time: 108 mins

The Walker is an American film about a man who serves normally as a carer for the first ladies of Washington, D.C. who becomes involved in a murder case that he knew little about.

This was apparently meant to be both a thrilling and deeply interesting film, however in my opinion, it was neither. The first twenty minutes of the film, very little happens, but as the rest of the film passes, I realised that those 20 minutes was probably the most interesting part of the film.

The problem with the remainder of the film is that, while trying to be complex and original, the story gets all tangled up in itself, and due to that, I lost interest in the film very quickly. Perhaps the final bit was actually a little interesting, but at least 80 minutes of this film was complete cow dung.

Overall, I’ll give this a 5.9 because it was a very boring film to watch, with little to get excited about at all throughout.
