Still an eco-sceptic? Clap your eyes on this lot. Awe-inspiring, terrifying, transcendently beautiful, and absolutely weighted with significance for the future of the planet.

"Chasing Ice" is a grand adventure, a visual amazement and a powerful warning.

If you're looking for eye-popping evidence that the world's glaciers are melting, don't miss the small-scale but spectacular documentary, Chasing Ice.

The rapid disappearance of ice mountains, filmed over a period of years, is compressed through time-lapse technology into minutes and seconds. The speeded-up effect is harrowing and also, disturbingly, eerily beautiful.

The movie might have given us a bit less of Balog and a bit more of the startling sequences he produced.

Though the filmmaker's point of view on the matter seems quite clear, Orlowski does smartly acknowledge counterarguments against climate change without dwelling on them.

"Chasing Ice" aims to accomplish, with pictures, what all the hot air that has been generated on the subject of global warming hasn't been able to do: make a difference.

The photography is often beautiful (the blue glaciers sparkle in the sun like massive sapphires), but it's disturbing - and sure to convince any climate-change doubters.

As much as one may intellectually believe in climate change, to see it actually happening has the power to stun a viewer into wordlessness.

Provides a memorable bookend to accompanying shots of storms, fires, and floods from the last few years, ones that resonate urgently with the recent Hurricane Sandy damage still in the news.

The "green" teams looking into such energy sources as solar, wind and nuclear are often ridiculed. Watch "Chasing Ice" and see if you laugh.

The last words, four and simple, rightly belong to Balog: "You can't deny it." No doubt - the iceman cometh.

What sustains the film are neither words nor music but spectacular images of places few people have ever seen.

You won't want to look away - not only because of the gorgeous images, but also because of the reality it presents.

Considering the gravity of the situation there is very little preaching in Chasing Ice. Facts about global warming are presented then backed up with staggering visuals. An audience is invited to accept it as proof, or not.
