Good movie, with some small stuff

I watched this movie almost a week after I saw All the President's Men, (Robert Redford) and overall I found this movie to be rather enjoyable! There's little dialogue which keeps you on your toes for the entire movie. Just when you think things are getting better...think again! The main (only) character screams a 10 second long f-bomb, but for a good reason. This isn't a common survival movie where people cut their legs off for seemingly no reason, and stab animals brutally. It's a good representation on how to keep calm, and solve the problem at hand. In fact, the only real violence was when he gets a huge gash on his forehead from banging into a pole. When he wakes up, the cut DOES look really deep, but he puts stitches on it afterwards. In the end, it's a great family movie that gives good messages on how to solve the problem at hand. A must-see!!

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

AWESOME FOR 9 UP. ONLY FOR LANGUAGE. 3 F-BOMBS

THIS IS RATED G IN MANY COUNTRIES. SWITZERLAND IS 6. IT IS ONLY PG IN ONTARIO DUE TO 3 F-BOMBS. GREAT MOVIE. ONE VIOLENT SCENE IS A SMALL CUT ON HIS HEAD OR WHEN HE DROWNS. BUT HE IS A GOOD ROLE MODEL AND DOESN'T GIVE UP HOPE UNTIL THE END.

Great role models
Too much swearing

A little slow.

It's slow and really no storyline. The language, is just on f word at the middle of the movie. There wasn't really any dialogue through the whole movie.

All is lost

This is a great movie and very different and original. There is one use of the word f*** but since the character yells it loudly it isn't even clear what he is saying most people will just think he is just yelling and not even know that he said f***. There one scene where he eats his dinner and has a little bit of alcohol. The movie is very intense at times but most children wont be very frightened. Some kids may not appreciate this movie so i think children should be mature so they don't think its boring.

"All is Lost"

If the first five minutes captivate you, you're going to absolutely adore "All is Lost". If they don't, you'll probably still find it really well-made albeit ultimately relatively slight and inconsequential among the crowded awards season landscape.

It's almost enigmatic.

This is so minimalist that it essentially reaches the level of complexity. Robert Redford's character is literally the only person shown, has no name, no history, and has one actual line not including his three cries for help, but he does such a terrific job that the audience is holding their breath along with him. Almost nothing happens, but the filmmaking is so immersive that it feels like real life at times. The settings and shots are so bare that the film could be viewed so many ways, whether it's allegorical, metaphorical, or literal, or whether it takes place in 1993 or 2013. It doesn't necessarily demand several viewings nor would I want to view it again because I feel like the film is, admittedly, kind of a gimmick film, but it was still marvelous despite having one boring scene. 9/10, amazing, two thumbs up, far above average, etc.
