All Is Lost Reviews
Although Robert Redford gives his all, I found All is Lost to be quite a slow moving film that, after the first hour, really starts to drag.
Everything make sense and that's make the whole 90 mins really smooth. The bad things does not keep coming non-stop... The unnamed man a very balance character, kind of resourceful, okay good voyaging, survival skill, etc.
A small boat with a single sailor (played by a world weary Robert Redford) is accidentally hit by a rogue container from a tanker in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
Redford has no dialogue except a few words to explain his predicament at the start and one swear word a full 59 minutes into the film!
The director thus relies on a cast of one!
The film shows the inherent danger of sailing alone at sea.
Redford does well to perform most of his own action sequences it seems so the viewer is spared much CGI and dodgy stuntmen.
At the end the film's conclusion is questionnable. Not your usual end to such a film.
