Re: " All Is Lost" movie

I watched this movie last night and I hated it! First of all, I was falling asleep most of the time since there is no action and no dialogue. There are so many stupid mistakes that I cannot believe that the director himself is a sailor like some people have said.
Robert Redford is never sailing, even when the wind is light his sails are down! There is no rush to plug the huge hole on the hull. His harness is attached to the lifelines! No jacklines? When he goes overboard, the lifelines should have broken. He took forever to decide to rig a storm jib even though he had plenty of warning. Instead of heaving to and setting up the sea anchor, he has decided to lay ahull, leaving his boat at the mercy of the waves??? Where were his portable GPSs? This is in modern times, because he has a tough notebook. It looks like a total novice who decided to take a sailboat and go offshore for a spin. I wasted my money!
