Outcast Mini: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013)

So, the long in development remake of the Danny Kaye starring 1947 film and also adapted from the James Thurber story has finally hit theaters. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, directed by and starring Ben Stiller, proves to be an overlong bore. Sure some of the effects are well executed and the core idea of courage and self discovery is a good one, but it never feels real and does not grab a hold of my imagination. It doesn't help that the McGuffin of the missing negative is obvious right from the start. This is a movie that is pretty to look at but is ultimately empty.
