Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "Murph: The Protector" reminds us of the valor expended on distant front lines and the holes left at home.
Rotten: A one-note hagiography, no matter how convincing and affecting its portrait of unimpeachable courage.
Fresh: By celebrating an actual American hero, "Murph" reminds audiences that bells and whistles, budgets and effects aren't necessary so long as filmmakers have human stories of bravery and valor to tell.
Every single american should watch this and remember the brave sacrifices the people in our military make as well as their families. Gone but never forgotten!!!!
Very moving and inspiring portrayal of Medal of Honor recipient Michael Murphy - one of our true heroes.
True American Hero
