Item Details

An open-water thriller about one man's battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea. 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.

Pretty good for a movie with only one actor (Robert Redford). Never a dull moment on the boat.

No need for subtitles or a French ,Spanish or Italian translation since there was only six words spoken throughout the entire move... I wore out the fast fwd button on my remote on this movie. Surprised RR would even take such a role.

Tom Hanks in Castaway was far better since there was conversation. This movie is boring at its best!

This DVD was recommended to me by sister-in-law. It was quite good -- likely not for everyone. The ending is left for each individual to decide the ending on their own, which makes for good conversation with whom you view the movie with -- or in a group of individuals at any event.

The best movie about man-at-sea since Spencer Tracy in 'The Old Man and The Sea'. But this is the better film,.. because there is no voice-over, and because of the surperbly better acting ! (And if you know a bit about sailing, its edge-of-seat fearful !) I'm not a Redford fan, but he should have got an Oscar.

A good rental, but there was never a "breakthrough" moment for me. It just meandered interestingly along until the sudden, and quite predictable end.

Robert Redford gets full marks for his solo role. If you enjoy man vs nature type films, you will enjoy this movie.

Very good film about sailing, but has some plotholes as others have said here,
-When the navigation gear fails due to getting wet, there should have been a backup distress device to access the system of satellites. And why wasn't the gear in a waterproof container? And the life raft should also have had one of these devices.

This is a 2013 survival film written and directed by J. C. Chandor.
The film stars Robert Redford as a man lost at sea.
Redford is the only cast member, and the film has almost no dialogue.
It is a real nail-biter, gripping and profoundly involving albeit a simple and straightforward story.
At age 77, without a supporting cast and performing virtually all of his water stunts himself, Redford is shining in what is an extremely physical but also an intellectually demanding role.

Technically idiotic and incompetent. Watched 15 minutes then concluded that the end was too far away.

from IMDB: Our Man: 13th of July, 4:50 pm. I'm sorry... I know that means little at this point, but I am. I tried, I think you would all agree that I tried. To be true, to be strong, to be kind, to love, to be right. But I wasn't. And I know you knew this. In each of your ways. And I am sorry. All is lost here... except for soul and body... that is, what's left of them... and a half-day's ration. It's inexcusable really, I know that now. How it could have taken this long to admit that I'm not sure... but it did. I fought 'til the end, I'm not sure what this worth, but know that I did. I have always hoped for more for you all... I will miss you. I'm sorry.
