Movie Info

Up on Bear Island -- somewhere off the northeast American coast -- a U.S. meteorological team discovers German submarines stashed with gold. Though the plot is difficult to follow, it does involve murder and a certain amount of intrigue, though many have felt that this movie version of the excellent Alistair MacLean novel left most of the intrigue between the covers of the book. ~ Rovi

Audience Reviews for Bear Island

Bear Island is a great little action thriller that seems to have been long forgotten, or maybe never noticed in the first place? A shame really as this is the quintessential Saturday afternoon movie. It's got espionage, it's got mystery, a 'Who done it' ending, secret Nazi bases, snowmobile chases, the lot! With Donald Sutherland, Vanessa Redgrave, Richard Widmark, Christopher Lee and Lloyd Bridges it's an impressive cast too. The German heritage story involving Donald Sutherland's character is actually really clever, not to mention intense and disturbing. A pleasant alternative to a Bond film and a lot better than a number of them.
