Dear filmmakers,Please stop making these boring, empty movies.

Usually when you watch an incredibly boring movie the question that's uppermost in your mind is "Is it ever going to end?

If you have an interest in the wilderness, ,hunting or just survival, skip this one, it's frustratingly incompotent and boring.

Boring and Preachy .

Slow and boring isn't how I would typically imagine a survival story.

Stunning vistas, beautiful soundtrack, great acting and a good story!

The score is dull, depressing and reminds me of some other art house dullness.

They begin as polar opposites but in the end they are bonded, in as gripping and unexpected a finale as you can find in a slow starting movie.

This movie is meditative and slow, with a bit of drama in the middle when the bear attacks.

Well written, stunning cinematography and convincing acting!

Beautiful scenery, haunting music and compelling story .

The locations were stunning and the music really unusual (and that's a good thing).

And why on earth did the son CARRY him all the way down a mountain when even without a sled, he could've dragged him?

Completely unrealistic, dull and uninteresting .

It was slow paced and while exciting at times lacked a bit more action or dialogue.

Don't waste your time.

Cheesy.. DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB DUMB waste of money and time

slow movie with beautiful snowy landscapes .

And now they must struggle against nature and it's unpredictable threats to get out alive.

The story is full of faults, and is pretty boring.

Absolutely nothing happened.

I was sorely disappointed to find that after a very slow crawl to a single moment of excitement, we return back to another very slow crawl until the end of the movie.

Don't waste your time on this.

(3) After the crisis starts, what follows is a long, painful, and slow slog for the characters to try and get out of their situation.


Slow and depressing.

Worth the watch.

The beautiful landscape and terrain is captured by cinematographer Todd McMullen, while Ernst Reijseger's score effectively complements the odd mixture of slow pacing and non-stop danger.

The scenery was a blessing because the film itself was plodding.

From its opening frame this is a chronicle presented amidst the breathtaking grandeur of the unforgiving Montana backcountry.

The filmmakers were raised in Montana, and have an inherent feel for the stunning and often treacherous landscape.

This is a unrealistic, boring and just plain bad flim.

A slow build up for a powerful final moment .

I was on the edge of my seat for most of this film.

While the story starts off extremely slow, painting a picture of an estranged father son relationship, the momentum changes when the reclusive dad and reluctant city boy take off for a winter hunt in the snowy mountains of Montana.

Perhaps this was an artistic decision in order to help us empathize with David's (the son) boredom or to articulate to the audience the patience of hunting and/or the depth to which the two are in the wild.

Incredibly boring.

As a survival movie I found Walking Out satisfying and well worth the watch.

Don't waste your time on this one.

On the other hand, many crisis situations are long, painful and slow for the victims.
