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!!!!
God Bless Murph
I wish parents would watch and discuss this movie with their kids as they approach middle and high school as they begin making the choices that are going to define their life’s direction. You can’t watch this and not be inspired by Michael’s dedication and the impact he had on his family, friends, and country at large.
To all those other dedicated military personnel that served as Michael’s brothers in arms - I thank you for everything you do for us. This film is a reflection on your dedication and service as well.
True American Hero
Can't say enough good things about Murph and those like him. Rest in Peace, brother.
