An intense survival movie, with a solid almost completely non-verbal highly physical performance from the usually inert and boring Robert Redford. Here he carries the movie on his back. One negative is the pretty bad musical score. A great score would have made the movie even better.

All is lost ... especially my time

Normally I start a review with a quote from the film in question. That's a bit difficult in this case since "All is lost" lacks any conversation. The only thing that would qualify is a frustrated cry of the famous F-word. For the rest it is just sloshing water, creaking wood, nois of hitting ropes and lots of rain and falling water, you hear throughout the film. I can understand his frustration, because how the hell is it possible to have a collision between your pleasure boat and a container on that immeasurable ocean while doing an afternoon nap ? It's difficult to call this movie unnerving exciting. I dare to say that it was dead boring after a certain time. The only decision I took after watching this film is that I'll never set foot on such a boat and float around on the oc...

Bestimmt ist Robert Redfords Charakter aus All Is Lost, der noch nicht einmal einen Namen trägt, der einsamste Mann der Filmgeschichte! Über seine Vorgeschichte erfahren wir nichts und auch nichts darüber, was er erreichen will. Seine Gedanken kennen wir nicht und er redet auch nicht mit sich selbst (anders als die meisten Überlebenskünstler). Das braucht er auch nicht, denn Robert Redfords Leinwand-Präsenz reicht vollkommen aus! Neben all seinen mittelmässigen Filmen als Regisseur hatte man fast vergessen, wie gewaltig Redfords Ausstrahlung ist! In All Is Lost muss er mit Improvisationstalent und Geschick ums Überleben kämpfen. Seine Yacht, auf der er sich befindet, kollidierte mit einem Container und weckt Redford aus dem Schlaf. Ein Leck in der Schiffseite ist der Beginn einer Kettenre...

impressive art but a touch souless

a disaster movie with just one man and a boat. no other actors or speaking., as a work of art its really good. and really well made. it works. but as a form of entertainment. i would of liked some dialogue even its just the guy swearing from time to time. anybody in real life on their own in that circumstance would of said something even if it was just jesus now what etc etc. yet nothing is really spoken, which makes it kind of souless.
redford is good but he doesn't bring the real human element to the film as you would expect. the anguish and pain he instead just seems very comfortable with his boat in ruins and storms and his life in the balance . far too comfortable.
but as a work of art which it is. then its great but from a enjoyable point of view i personally would prefer to watc...

An Old Man Vs. the Sea

All is Lost has been gaining significant attention from critics - and while it may have gotten an Oscar snub, it has been more than welcome in other awards circles. But for all the critical acclaim, this story of survival, while certainly intense, just left me wanting a bit more.

First things first, Robert Redford can carry a film on his own. If there is one thing that stands out in All is Lost, it is that it truly is a standout performance from Redford. Plus - he had to go through a lot - underwater scenes, lots of wind and rain, working on a boat (sometimes upside down) and a raft - I have to think that the filming had to be pretty rough, and, let's face it, the man is no spring chicken, so I have to give it up that he put himself through such a demanding role. And he does so convinc...
