The Endurance (2001)
Critic Reviews for The Endurance
No excerpt available.
Fascinatingly evokes not just the gruelling, first-person details of this particular polar expedition, but the waning moments of the entire spirit of romantic, white-European Boy's Own adventurism.
Beautifully blends interviews with scholars and descendants of that crew, still photos and movie film from the trip and re-creations of the events of the voyage.
Audience Reviews for The Endurance
An incredible story wrapped in a fairly ordinary documentary. As a big fan of the history of polar exploration, I was hoping for more. But if you don't know about Ernest Shackleton, you must see this movie. Even if you do, this movie is recommended.
Not a bad retelling of the story, but very, very dry considering how intense the original occurrence was.
Yep, not the Kenneth Branaugh mini-series, this documentary is fabulous. Liam Neeson takes you on the re-telling of what was truly an impossible rescue of the Endurance crew.
