Consensus: Politically complex and ambitious, Walk on Water delivers a memorable story of guilt, revenge, and human connectivity.

An ambitious film, wrapped inside the package of a thriller, that delivers on most - if not all - of its lofty aspirations.

The film deals with many serious issues, some of them only superficially, but Fox places them all in the context of the growing friendship between the two opposites.
