Synopsis 'Tour de force' seems puny to describe Redford's stupendous performance, which holds you in thrall from first to last.3.5 stars out of 4 -- In this spare, unusual and intimate action thriller, Redford's expressions do nearly all of the communicating.The guy in J. C. Chandor’s amazing ALL IS LOST -- identified only as 'Our Man' in the credits and instantly recognizable as Robert Redford, giving the performance of his life -- says almost nothing at all.We're moved by the image of this legendary actor, still ruggedly handsome at 77, acting without a net....It's an extraordinary thing to see. -- Grade: ARobert Redford delivers arguably his most profound and moving performance. There are times during the man’s struggles when we literally have to remember to breathe.It's admirably crafted, with a wealth of detail that illustrates the sailor's resourcefulness....ALL IS LOST is also a showcase for an understated yet mesmerizing performance.The beating heart at the center of Chandor’s daunting exercise is Redford himself, who plays his nameless adventurer in a virtually wordless performance with the wary determination a generation came to know and adore throughout the 1970s.[The film] has guts, depth and a star capable of holding the screen without a net.It helps that our quiet American is played by Redford....It’s an impressive performance...Academy Award-nominated writer/director J.C. Chandor (MARGIN CALL) takes the helm for this tense adventure drama about a man (Robert Redford) who must fight for survival after being shipwrecked at sea. We first meet the unnamed protagonist -- a sailor floating on the ocean waves, sans hope, minutes from death. On the soundtrack, our hero reads a final missive to the world; he expresses remorse to his loved ones for hurting them, and prepares to enter a watery grave. The picture then jumps back in time by eight days, and an intertitle places us in the Indian Ocean, 1700 nautical miles from the Sunda Straits. The boatsman, lying asleep below deck on his schooner, is suddenly jostled to consciousness by a horrifying crash. He discovers that a steel crate, floating in mid-ocean, has torn a gaping hole into the side of his vessel. From that ominous beginning, the crises mount, including flooding, a ruined ham radio, and blinding thunderstorms. Though the sailor tries everything he can think of to save himself, external challenges ultimately coalesce and threaten to damn him.
