Critic Reviews for Beyond the Pole

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (5)

  • This is gummy (if welcome) eco-film satire, then, but mostly just a vehicle for tent and crampon gags, and for Mangan to perfect his grating-dolt shtick.

  • It is by turns a ferocious 'j'accuse' of the limits of liberal intervention and the myth of personal responsibility, underpinned by a surprisingly bitter current of darkness and despair.

    March 19, 2010
  • With considerable experience in both comedy and genuine docus, helmer David L. Williams... knows exactly the filmmaking cliches he's spoofing, as well as the deadpan comic timing needed to stretch this over feature length.

  • It starts tiresomely - it is obvious the pair can't be taken seriously for a moment - but cheers up when the expedition gets dangerous and a couple of gay Norwegians show them a clean pair of heels.

    February 16, 2010 | Rating: 2/5
  • This is a small British mockumentary with some good laughs and two likeable leads in Mangan and Thomas, but you can't escape the feeling that it is best seen at home on DVD, with a nice takeaway.

    February 12, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This engaging comedy is consistently amusing rather than ferociously funny, but it has heart, ensuring an unexpectedly affecting climax.

    Quite fun but pretty lightweight in most ways, this should, perhaps, have gone straight to television and only the impressive locations ever make it feel any more than that.
