Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

Saw the film sunday. my thought while driving home, What other actor would have been better for the role! How about clint! we would have had more dialog.

And my other takeaway from the movie is god I hate companionway boards!!

Clint could never make a sailor.
Who would get raped in all is lost if Clint was the character.
It seems to me that many Clint movies have disturbing sexual content.

We just saw this disaster last night. Like others, aside from the mental midget main character and the multitude of technical flaws..........I couldn't decide if the plot was a man who was suicidal or just sloth. Did this film say something about the human condition?

Either way I'll never get that $20 back nor will I know what I would have done with those two hours of my life otherwise.

I'll use my vestigial thumbs to give this as many thumbs down as possible.

Blah

Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

It so amazing the different experiences we sailors have over this movie, very cool. Sorry though to the folks who feel they wasted $. I remember being talked into seeing snakes on a plane, it was like paying someone to hit me with a 4x4!

Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

Gretch and I went to see this the other day. We left disappointed.

I went in hoping that we would see an epic battle of a single hander fighting against many many obstacles as the sea conspires against him, and macgyvers his way through them all. When he abandons ship about 1/2 the way through, I thought Yuk, I really don't want to watch a guy in a lifeboat for the next 45 minues. I saw it as giving up, taking the film in a predictable, easy to shoot direction that would not entertain me. I would have much rather watched the man give 150% of himself for 90 minutes as he does super-sailor things to save his ship. Instead, we see him shave?

Both of us have read "Adrift: 76 Days Lost at Sea", which was a very riveting account of a solo man's survival in a raft. The movie did not convey 1/8 of Steve Callahan's determination, trials or ingenuity. Redford's character was so flat-line.

Having said all of that, we were somewhat entertained.

Chris

For the record I feel the same way about snakes on a plane.

Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

This movie is just plain bad and from many directions!! Total waste of money and most of all time!! Hollywood is clueless and has gotten a pass for too long. I know I am with friends so that is why I haven't held back on this review.

Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

I haven't seen it, but i've read the reviews. Making an accurate movie on a boat is a challenge. We're working on one now… taking a long time to get it together, but we're close now. Moving into post production. It's a micro-budget doc about our voyage to find an iceberg. No hollywood nonsense, wave pools or chopper cams… and the sailing is accurate. Trailer#2:

One Simple Question: Trailer V2 - The Iceberg Trailer - YouTube


We also love Jean Du Sud by Yves Gelinas - he captures the reality of it very well I think.

Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

Geeez, I was going to see it...now I am thinking differently.

Snakes on a Plane: bought the DVD. I pop it in when I want to clear out my domicile! Peoples tend to find polite excuses to go and do "other things"
