Critic Reviews for The Endurance

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (24) | Fresh (62) | Rotten (3)

  • 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.

  • Footage from a remarkable silent documentary has been combined with new photography, music and a narration to produce an even more remarkable sound documentary.

    January 4, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Most of all, it is a salute to Shackleton himself, whose calm and grace under extreme pressure helped guarantee that not a single crew member would be lost.

  • Those who see Endurance, however, are not likely soon to forget what they see, even if they have some difficulty imagining how it could be possibly be true.

  • Anyone interested in great stories should be interested in this one.

    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.
