Movie Info

Filmed in Scandanavia, The Polar Bear King is a visualization of an old folk tale. A handsome prince is slated to marry the less-than-attractive Queen of Summerland.

Norwegian fairy tale is confusing, long, and a bit scary.

Audience Reviews for The Polar Bear King

Even though this fairy tale was based on an old Norwegian folktale, I bet I could have written a better script. And my goodness was this a low budget film or what? The polar bear looked like a bad animatronic in one of those haunted houses at the county fair. Other times he looked like a man in a suit. I think it would have been better if they used a real polar bear and if they had the polar bear and the princess have a relationship before they "fell in love." It was love at first sight and even in a fairy tale that makes me want to puke. Otherwise, it would have been a good movie.
