| OK, but not really my thing.
I'll immediately put up my hand and admit I only watched this because Jake Gyllenhaal narrated it. To be honest, if he hadn't and I could turn back time, I wouldn't have chosen to see it. Jake manages to put emotion and a sense of "awesome!!" into what Phillipe tries to do, but this is essentially a cartoon, and the animation ain't all that. I guess as someone brought up on Pixar I would say this, but while this style of drawing would look brilliant in a book, on film it...doesn't. However, the plot, based on the true story of someone who attempted to walk between the Twin Towers, is short but sweet. Jake's breathless will-he-won't-he attitude actually had me wanting to know whether he WOULD or not. If Jake ever gets bored with acting, he should take up voice-overs, or narrate children's books or something because he has a very radio-friendly voice. I would suggest people watch for Jake, but otherwise, only if you REALLY want to watch a French dude tight-rope walk.
