Editorial Reviews

Academy Awardr winner Robert Redford stars in ALL IS LOST, an open-water thriller about one man's battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea. Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.

4.0 out of 5 stars There's nothing like a good story November 4, 2013
Format:DVD
Despite the lack of special effects, computer animation and 3-D (not to mention dialog), All is Lost keeps your attention and your interest. It even holds off on the mood music until the second half. Until then, about the only sounds are the lapping waves against the boat, right beside you in surround sound.

Unlike, say Harry Potter or James Bond films, there is real mortal risk for our (unnamed) hero. The outcome is far from guaranteed.

Robert Redford is battered by one lousy turn of luck after another, but he just keeps going. It just keeps getting worse and worse. There is only one alternative, and it is always there for him. So to that extent the film is exciting and suspenseful. But there are no guns, no villains and no betrayals, unless you believe God himself is behind this torture.

It shows once again that a good story trumps all, a lesson I wish Hollywood would buy into, instead of comic book heroes who we all know must triumph. Great stories have been sorely lacking for a good 25 years. This is a great story.

These single focus oeuvres, like biographies, always let if not make the lead shine. And Robert Redford, at 77, is not just an athlete, he's a fine, unstereotyped actor. Very believable. Another reason All is Lost should be on the must-see list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Usual Disaster Movie January 21, 2014
Format:DVD
Unfortunately, the producers of this film (and there are a lot of them) either couldn't afford to promote it properly or lost faith in the project. Too bad. Redford is great. The film is fascinating. The ending almost too beautiful.
Some reviewers have mentioned things that bother them. "Our man" shaving? It's a moment that defines the character, agree with the choice or not. The giant container ships not seeing flares? Well, they don't. This is a film where, for an apparently competent seaman, things go wrong. Slowly at first, then with increasing frequency, "our man" just doesn't get a break. A man who has controlled his life, loses that ability.
Some people will want more excitement. But this is, on the whole, a very realistic, very personal, "disaster movie."

Format:DVD
"All Is Lost" (2013 release; 100 min.) brings the story of "Our Man" (as Robert Redford is named in the credits) alone at sea. As the movie opens, we are told Our Man is 1,700 miles away from the Sumatra Straits in the Indian Ocean, and in a voice over, Redford tells us that "all is lost, except for the body and soul, or whatever remains of that. I'm sorry". The screen goes dark and then states "8 days earlier". We see Our Man waking up in his sailboat, only to find that there is gashing hole due to a collision with a container which appears to have fallen off a containership in mid ocean. And from there, Our Man's troubles start. Will Our Man make it out alive? To tell you more would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: this movie is a tour-de-force in every which way, the likes of which we don't get to see very much. A lot has been made about the fact that there is no dialogue in the movie, but frankly I find it a refreshing take. How many people would dare make a movie without any dialogue? Gutsy call. Second, this movie is written and directed by J. C. Chandor, who made an intriguing debut a couple of years ago with "Margin Call". Now this. Can't wait to see what he'll do next. Third, there is the bravura performance from Robert Redford, now 77 if you can believe it (but looking at least 10-15 years younger that that). In a very different way, this is reminiscent of Tom Hanks in "Castaway", except in this movie there is not "pre" and "after", it's just Redford as Our Man battling the elements at sea. We don't know anything about Our Man's background, his life situation, etc. But we nevertheless are emotionally invested in this character.

1.0 out of 5 stars From a sailors prospective- February 15, 2014
Format:DVD
Spoiler Alert.
From a sailors prospective, this film is tripe. The mistakes made are too numerous to mention, but lets go with a couple obvious ones:
- No EPRIB on an ocean going vessel in the middle of the Indian Ocean...Please
- No Handheld radio, $100
- an ocean sailor with no self steering? So I am to believe that he stayed awake 24/7?
- how did the container crash through the bulkhead in calm seas, especially on the side of the boat- perhaps the bow but the side???
- how did the "crash" with the container disconnect the mast radio antenna cable.
- No sailor leaves a hole with such a flimsy patch
- No prepared abandon ship bag...in the open ocean?
- Shaving before a storm...that would have been the time to deploy the storm sail (idiot). This is textbook.
- what no automatic bilge pump- not even a $15 alarm!!
- in the middle of a storm, this moron doesn't even replace the companionway boards.
- what an ocean going, singled-handed sailor with no proper (inboard) jack lines, instead he cleats to the top lifeline. This would not have held his body weight while being dragged overboard (moron).
- not once did he put on a life jacket- death wish perhaps? Not one life jacket in the whole movie. The life ring on the stern was not even salvaged as the boat was sinking (idiot).
-What kind of idiot, attaches a line to the sinking boat while in a life boat, then goes to sleep. Lets not forget that the boat has about 6-9000 of ballast.

The list goes on and on, "Our Man" was an amateur and far from the resourceful sailor the film portrays. At his skill level/level of preparedness he had No Business being on the open ocean.

I did like how they shot from underwater, shooting up on the boat and raft, cool effect.
