Disappointing, especially in comparison with the documentaries on Shakleton.
Audience Reviews for Shackleton
This is a fantastic epic adventure and an extremely well directed, acted, and cast motion picture. Very accurate historically. The scenery is incredible. Excellent.
If you love bios or docudramas the way I do, you'll enjoy this one. A really great historical story with in-depth character and historical details that might bore some, but I found fascinating. This film takes it's time in telling the story so that you fully understand the character, and the obstacles he faced to accomplish his expedition. Wonderful A&E mini-series.
I normally love movies based on true stories but this one was too long and boring. There was only about an hour of this movie that I found interesting (once they were stuck on the ice). Watching them kill their animals upset me, too!
