A Fabulous Film. Well Worth Watching.
on 29 December 2017
We all have our doubts when thinking of buying what we hope is going to be a good film. Only for those doubts to turn out be true. Some people have said that Robert Redford, cannot act. This is my view after buying and watching this film. Firstly I have given it 5 stars. I would have given it 10 out of 10 but as we all know there are only 5 stars to choose from. At sea on a journey, he is asleep when all of a sudden he wakes up with a jolt. His 39 foot boat has hit a large container which has fallen over board from a container ship. What ensues can possibly be his worst nightmare and thinking what the devil do I do now ?. Do I give up, or do I try and attempt to save my boat and some how carry on ?. This film shows what he does and how he does it. I am not going to tell you what happens but let me just say he must have gone through all the trials and tribulations of a lone sailor. In some parts it could be classed as funny, then you will get angry. I watched this thinking it was going to be rubbish or maybe possibly quite good. It is in fact a fabulous and brilliant film of one mans attempt to get back to land in a life raft. The things that go wrong and don't forget he is in a sinking boat which is taking on water all the time. This film will make you think. Most of the film is purely on him trying to stay alive and using his own initiative to keep going. I should tell you that Redford does nearly no talking throughout this film. Some say its boring. I thought I have a brilliant well thought out film here and we do have that. I give it 10 out of 10. In some way's, it's spectacular. Would you like to be adrift in an open ocean for day's or week's at a time all on your own ?. I wouldn't. I suggest you do buy it and watch it for yourself. I think this film is a must see.
