This is a very interesting movie - especially when you consider the complete lack of dialogue. Visually it is amazing but what I found was that without any dialogue I really couldn't get a sense of whether his situation and solutions on the boat where a standard response or incredible. Especially as someone who knows pretty much nothing about boats.
To put it in perspective - when he finally screams in anger I actually paused the movie to see how long it took him to reach his breaking point of stoic resolve.

Robert Redford, one of the best American actors in the last half of the 20th century decided to try this solo feature, reminiscent of the silent film period (although it is in color and it does have two or three lines of dialogue). We get to see Redford project determination, hope, despair, fear and anger without dialogue. He knew this would be a difficult film and he was up to the task.

So I figured out the ending and maybe solved two mysteries at once: he's in the middle of the Indian Ocean, he hears a plane overhead and fires his last rocket towards it; screams "Oh Feck" and now the surprise ending: the last (missing) shot shows the airplane with a hole in it from his rocket diving straight towards him; and the name on the plane? MALAYSIAN AIRLINES!

Robert Redford is great in this survival movie. The sailor showed a lot more ingenuity than most.

Robert Redford was superb although this movie is not for an average viewer. Some people might find it boring as there is no dialog or because he is the only actor there. Sea plays a supporting / not supporting role. Worthwhile.

Pretty good for a movie with only one actor (Robert Redford). Never a dull moment on the boat.

No need for subtitles or a French ,Spanish or Italian translation since there was only six words spoken throughout the entire move... I wore out the fast fwd button on my remote on this movie. Surprised RR would even take such a role.

Tom Hanks in Castaway was far better since there was conversation. This movie is boring at its best!

This DVD was recommended to me by sister-in-law. It was quite good -- likely not for everyone. The ending is left for each individual to decide the ending on their own, which makes for good conversation with whom you view the movie with -- or in a group of individuals at any event.

The best movie about man-at-sea since Spencer Tracy in 'The Old Man and The Sea'. But this is the better film,.. because there is no voice-over, and because of the surperbly better acting ! (And if you know a bit about sailing, its edge-of-seat fearful !) I'm not a Redford fan, but he should have got an Oscar.

from IMDB: Our Man: 13th of July, 4:50 pm. I'm sorry... I know that means little at this point, but I am. I tried, I think you would all agree that I tried. To be true, to be strong, to be kind, to love, to be right. But I wasn't. And I know you knew this. In each of your ways. And I am sorry. All is lost here... except for soul and body... that is, what's left of them... and a half-day's ration. It's inexcusable really, I know that now. How it could have taken this long to admit that I'm not sure... but it did. I fought 'til the end, I'm not sure what this worth, but know that I did. I have always hoped for more for you all... I will miss you. I'm sorry.
