So-so, mostly wordless Arctic Survival Drama. Brrrrr! - Arctic review by PV

Spoiler Alert
06/07/2019

This film is OK and stars Mads Mikkelsen who is a GREAT actor (watch THE HUNT). But I just think WHY?

Maybe it's an attempt to ape other survival dramas like The Revenant or Everest or others?

You can PREDICT there will be lots of ice and falling down crevasse and, as this is the Arctic, yes to polar bears and no penguins (no spoilers!)

At the end you just feel a bit MEH really.

Weird watching it in the heat of summer as I did too. I felt like getting some ice cubes out of the freezer, just for the empathy...

Not bad but a bit pointless, and not even as one would expect, a true story. Mads Mikkelsen can do MUCH better than this.

Tale of endurance with something missing - Arctic review by AB

Spoiler Alert
26/07/2019

So this film is another mostly exciting, epic tale of endurance in glacial conditions. Mads Mikkelsen acts his socks off for most of the film. But I feel a bit cheated by both the start and end of the film. The start because the plane has already crashed and we get no back story about who Overgard (the Mikkelsen character) is, what he is doing in the Arctic, and how come he is so proficient in survival techniques. And the end because the film ends abruptly without telling us what happened to the two survivors - did they in fact both survive? Still, I think it is worth a watch. Oh, and if ever your plane goes down in the Arctic, stay where you are and wait for rescue!!

Cold survival - Arctic review by AL

Spoiler Alert
06/09/2019

I really liked this film. I liked the openness of the story; no back story or flashbacks to explain what went before and plenty of occurrences that could be taken several ways, love it! Makes a refreshing change from the formulatic rubbish that gets made recently.

Very minimal dialogue that just adds to the atmosphere and some epic acting.

Well worth a watch.
