All is DEFINITELY lost!

By Russell Gallagher

This is the worst movie ever! It is a shame that a great actor like Robert Redford would agree to a stinker list this one! There are a number of nautical inconsistencies. One major one is that Redford's sailboat is hit by a shipping container that apparently fell off a container ship in the shipping lanes and drifted south; however, when Redford abandons ship, his life raft drifts north. The writers, directors, and producers should be ashamed of themselves for taking any money for this bomb. Don't waste your money; don't even rent it from Redbox!

Marginal, if you are a sailor you will want to pick it a part. In high seas on deck without life preserver nor jack lines. Stupid.

Your better off just watching the trailer!!!....I think Redford says 5 lines during the whole movie...with one outburst of ****...that must have made the movie PG-13. Don't waste your time or money on this, I wouldn't waste the time even when it goes to cable! Just not believable as a yachtsman out in the middle of the Indian Ocean....just cruising around, naps with sails life jackets in sight?....never appears to panic. Academy Award ....ha

One Actor ---but many messages

The pre-movie attraction is of course Robert Redford and the novelty of one person doing all the action---and minimal dialogue. But the post-movie message is even more interesting. Is it a commentary on modern society---that we have too much "junk" ---when the Cargo Ship goes by, it is hard not to think of the comparisons between the life raft and "stuff". Or, is a story of the spirit of the human struggle to survive in the midst of adversity. Is "Our Man" really "Us"? The day after the movie, I asked two questions--- when we face death, do we turn to God---Our Man didn't, so has a new narrative about God and death begun in our culture? Or, is "All Is Lost" actually built on the Christian suffering-death-resurrection cycle. The "death" was real; the single hand, a resurrection.. For me one of the most startling aspect of the movie was the number of people in the credits at the end of the movie---it took over more than 500 people to produce one man's story

As a boat owner and long distance sailor myself, I found this movie to be very realistic. Robert Redford does a fantastic acting job with so little dialogue to flesh out the circumstances.
