Storyline

Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner's intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest. Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face. Written by Roadside Attractions

Trivia

The name of the sailboat is the Virginia Jean. Aside from passing glimpses of the name on the back, the name is spoken during the brief S.O.S. radio call. See more »

Goofs

If he deployed a "sea anchor" which he used to remove the container from his boat, why did the rope remain relatively flat after the container was pulled from the boat? Wouldn't the rope be seriously pulling "straight down?" See more »

Crazy Credits

According to the credits "All is Lost was shot on three 1978 Cal 39 sailboats purchased from their owners in Southern California. These three boats generously gave themselves up for art: Tahoe, Tenacious, and Orion. They took their final sails in the Pacific Ocean and performed beautifully in the film as Our Mans's boat, the Virginia Jean. Rest in peace." See more »

Bad Bad Bad
5 October 2014 | by windjammer5516See all my reviews

What a ridiculously horrible movie. The nearly total silence throughout the film was awful. Most people will vocalize thoughts even when alone, or shout for help, or even grunt in pain. I was starting to think the guy was a mute.

And okay fine, so the guy was old, but could he move any slower? He slowly wandered around like he was lost in the Alaskan Wilderness or something. You're on a boat, your boat in fact, why do you look so darn confused like you don't know where anything is. He should know it inside and out.

When he's gathering food and things he may need in the raft he stops to fix his cut...just take the mirror (which could make a good signaling device) and your first aid kit and go.

Also for someone with a huge amount of time on his hands do you think maybe his life raft could have been a little more organized so that when he needed a flare he could actually find one?

Oh and what's the deal with the hat? They kinda make this show of him grabbing his hat but he never wears it? Really??

There were just too many horrible points in this movie to list.

Just bad all around. A complete waste of time.
