The Best Of The Best: Murph: The Protector
9 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having followed Michael Murphy for the last several years, I very much looked forward to seeing this movie. Now that I have seen it, I can say it is a movie every American should see. Congratulations to Scott Mactavish for the thoughtful and sensitive way Lt. Murphy, his spirit of commitment, love, and dedication to service came through to where I feel I actually know him.

Go see this movie! Take your family, your friends, your students, your neighbors - not a Hollywood movie, but a true story told by Michael's parents, extended family, friends, and colleagues.

You'll be glad you did!
