The first trailer I saw for this movie made it seem like it was going to be a boring movie but then I saw an extended trailer awhile later and it convinced me to give it a try. I was really glad I watched this film. I like films that are different or challenging and in this film, Robert Redford is the only person in the movie. It is about a man out at sea on his sail boat and he gets a hole in it and then eventually has to survive on a raft.
What I liked most about it was that it wasn't your typical movie from Hollywood about survival. It was more like a true to life survival film. They did not throw in flashbacks of his home life, or have inner dialogue going, it was just a man doing what he can to survive. I know that might sound boring but it is fascinating. I think there was like 5 lines of dialogue in the whole movie, but you are interested the whole time.
The sounds in the film are great and really make you fell like you are out there with him. Robert Redford was snubbed by the Academy for this role, he definitely deserved a nomination for best actor.
The movie is pretty clean but one of the very few words he ever says is the F-word. And there is a little bit of blood from cuts he receives. Overall, it was a good film and worth a watch.
