Reviews

Academy Award 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. Written and directed by Academy Award nominee J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) with a musical score by Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), the film is a gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience.

Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest.

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.

Robert Redford is alone. He's nameless, listed as "Our Man" in the credits. For unknown reasons, he's drifting on a yacht in the Indian Ocean when he collides with a cargo container, damaging his vessel. This incident is the first of many. Over eight days it starts to look like some kind of test from the Almighty. All is Lost is a film about hope: how long it can stay burning, and when the candle will be pinched out.

Ironically, the films this most resembles are The Perfect Storm and Gravity, both of which suffered from a badly miscast George Clooney. Here, the casting of Redford is perfect. An actor of his history and status comes with enormous baggage; and, like Tom Hanks's Captain Phillips, it is remarkable and moving to see him throw all that baggage overboard and deliver a selfless and subtle performance of real force.

This is an "experience" movie, almost entirely without dialogue. It's all about the details of a man, alone with his skill and his temperament. The storm scenes are terrifying. The quiet scenes are equally devastating. Coming hot on the heels of Gravity, an equally high concept disaster movie, I would say All is Lost is the less showy and more effective film.

***This review is for the film only***

Where do I start? First off, my apologies for the title, it's terrible I know but hey ho :-)

As for the film, it's basically one man in a boat, there's no backstory, no other people, almost no dialogue and no unnecessary Hollywood fluff, just simply the story of one man against the elements and what a wonderfully gripping story it turns out to be.

Robert Redford plays an unnamed yachtsman, deep on a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, when out of nowhere, he is hit by catastrophe.
What follows is an epic struggle for survival between man and the elements, the will to live and to survive the very worst of what mother nature can throw at you.

It's amazing that Redford is almost 80 years old and yet still has the character and athleticism to perform the stunts and challenges that he faces. He doesn't look a day over 55 and copes with all of the climbing and jumping, far better than I would at 37. You'll be knee deep with him as he lifts, climbs, carries, pushes and pulls his way around the boat to keep it afloat. and by the end of the film you'll almost feel exhausted for watching him do it. It's exciting and at times claustrophobic but it's also tense and seat edging to the very end.

This film might not be to everyone's tastes and I do understand that, it's more of an experience than a simple movie, but fans of Redford himself, or simply fans of battle for survival against the elements films, such as The perfect storm for example, will find something of value here.

For a film with only one actor in it and very little dialogue, it's certainly never dull and keeps your attention throughout.
It's beautifully shot and expertly directed and you really do care about what happens to Redford's character.

Does he survive? Now that would be telling.

A must see movie experience. 8/10

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER on 5 Jan. 2014
Format: DVD
This is another one man survivor film. There is no scenic Earth in the background, no tiger, not even a Wilson ball. Who is this guy? We don't know why we should care about a man who has accumulated enough wealth that he can take off by himself and sail around the world..or whatever it is he is attempting to do.

Redford's boat is hit by a floating sealand which allows in water to disable his emergency equipment, storms ravage the rest of his boat and he floats around in a life raft attempting to make contact with the same vessels that carry said sealands.

Redford doesn't say much. I wish he had talked to himself more. I was bored as I watched the struggle, waiting for the inevitable sharks and near rescue attempts.

In order to give a film which sucked eggs meaning I will attempt to explain its metaphor. In this film the sealand shipping lane represents the inevitable passage of taking souls to safety. Redford, struck by the "hand of God" i.e. sealand prepares his soul for the final journey until the god Maersk takes him home. The film highlights the theological idea that God gives and takes away and he has a purpose, which is delivery of overpriced sneakers to the US made in Asian sweatshops at all costs, so don't get in his way.

The film would have been worth watching if they made Redford the owner of the evil sneaker company and hence ironically gets disabled by his own greedy hand. This would have been easy to do with a flashback, intro, or even a prop. Nope. Just a guy in the proverbial boat in another well acted overrated film that lacks serious entertainment value.

Format: Blu-ray
Three of us saw "All Is Lost", a near dialogue-free film about a man battling the sea at the BFI London Film Festival's "Thrill" section, for the whole duration of the film the sold out cinema were holding their breath.

The "lone man" is Robert Redford, "the sea" is Indian Ocean. Redford (no name is given for the hero) is awakened one morning to find his yacht damaged by an astray shipping container, and taking on water through the wreckage. The yacht is restored within a couple of days, but all the electric equipment is more or less damaged and we are shown dark and ominous clouds on the horizon. And then all hell breaks loose, which lead Redford to abandon the vessel in favour of an inflatable life raft. By plummeting the audience directly into the action and refusing to fill the viewers on the material background of our hero (who is he, why is here alone in the middle of the Indian Ocean, what are his regrets), in my opinion brilliant J.C. Chandor (whose debut was brilliant Margin Call [DVD]) creates an severe and sombre shot of one man's struggle, skills, and determination to survive - all fantastically performed by Redford, who projects a quiet dignity of this unnamed sailor without the past in his attempt to navigate the Indian Ocean's shipping lane in the hope of being rescued (one of the most sad and breath-taking scenes of the film are the scenes where cargo liners pass literally meters from Redford's survival raft, oblivious of his struggles).

"All Is Lost" is simply a visually striking story about a struggle between a man and nature, this is not a film for everybody, but if you like the idea of such film - you will enjoy it thoroughly!
