A one-note hagiography, no matter how convincing and affecting its portrait of unimpeachable courage.

By celebrating an actual American hero, "Murph" reminds audiences that bells and whistles, budgets and effects aren't necessary so long as filmmakers have human stories of bravery and valor to tell.

"Murph: The Protector" reminds us of the valor expended on distant front lines and the holes left at home.

The story of Lt. Michael P. Murphy's life doesn't need to be hyped, and Murph: The Protector does a good job of staying out of its way.

... a documentary with the limited but entirely honorable mission of commemorating the life and sacrifice of Navy Lt. Michael P. Murphy, a Navy SEAL who died in a firefight in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan in June 2005.
