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.
This documentary takes an inside look into a true American hero and the dedication it takes to be a part of the Navy SEALs. The portrait that it paints of Lt. Michael Murphy is a testament to his will, his fortitude and his honor. This is a must-watch film for anyone who wonders who the brave men and women are that protect our great country. Simply great.
