Critic Reviews for Murph: The Protector
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.
... 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.
A poignant and inspirational tribute to Lieutenant Michael Patrick Murphy.
Audience Reviews for Murph: The Protector
Good insight into a man with an average upbringing that elevated himself to a life that embodies extreme courage and honor. In addition, it reinforces the message that this is only achievable with a true desire to give with no expectation of anything in return.
This film reminds us all and teaches younger generations that true heroes exist and they don't always wear capes. Director Scott Mactavish helped open the door to this great Americans life and did so with class and tremendous passion. I ordered my DVD in June 2012 and I can't wait to watch it again with my 7 year old to show him what a real hero looks like. This truly is the best documentary I have ever seen.
Shows a true American hero. Someone kids should look up to rather then Peyton Manning, Lebron, David Beckham, etc. If this didn't make you want to be a better person. You have no respect for what these men have done. God bless Lt. Murphy and his family and anyone who knew him. Our country is a safer place because people such as himself step up. Hooah. - Pfc. Hale, Cavalry Scout.
