Critic Reviews for Antarctica: A Year on Ice

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (26) | Rotten (4)

  • Way too much screen time is given over to folks describing what it's like to live in such a place, as opposed to, you know, actually living there.

    December 12, 2014 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • "Antarctica" ultimately does evoke a sense of the place - its magnificent emptiness and inhuman, unspoiled purity.

    December 4, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It is the simple glimpses of ordinary life in an extraordinary place that are the most stirring moments in the film.

    December 4, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Powell makes excellent use of time-lapse photography to capture such natural phenomena as a sea freezing over. What registers most strongly, though, is the sense of loneliness and professional drudgery.

    December 4, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Mostly what you get is a chronicle of tedious routine carried out in a killing climate. That gives this documentary a flavor that is strong and genuine. Just not very appealing.

    November 28, 2014
  • A documentary that's essentially a tribute to a hardy group of people who've made a life on the ice.

Audience Reviews for Antarctica: A Year on Ice

  • Apr 22, 2015
    A very interesting look at the life of those who choose to work in Antarctica. This features some stunning visuals but also has an engaging and thought provoking side too due to the isolation involved.
