“Murph: The Protector” – Review
“MURPH: The Protector” is a documentary based on LT Michael Murphy's life as a small boy in Patchogue, New York, a college student at Penn State University and his joining the U.S. Navy to serve and achieving his goal to being in the SEAL Teams.
The film revolves around the testimony of family and friends about Michael’s early life and his sense of honor, respect, courage and commitment to others and ultimately his well known virtue of unbridled selflessness to all, resulting in Lt Murphy giving his life for his men in 2005 in Afghanistan and culminating in him posthumously being awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.
This film is a testament to how one man lived every moment with lust for life and always wanting to be the best at his goals with humility and integrity.
This is a fine film portrait of an American soldier and his heroic legacy.
