Critic Reviews for To the Arctic
Is there a law that says we can't have some virtuosity with our virtuousness?
Yes, it's a classy affair, but the 40-minute doc's at-times-nerve-wracking power comes from the subjects who put a furry face on the ongoing and daunting issue of climate change.
A children's choir sings and a graphic of the movie title explodes into ice shards to heighten the dramatic impact. Corny? You bet...
Yes, there's some spectacular footage. But there's also an awful lot of filler for a 40-minute movie...
Good on you, polar bears, and kudos to the cinematic expertise that captures them, especially underwater.
Audience Reviews for To the Arctic
They advertise it as a journey following a mother polar bear and her two twins, but we hardly see them because the film decides to use various narrators beside Meryl Streep to tell stories about other animals in the cold. This would have been okay if it didn't put so much emphasis on the polar bears being the main attraction. The other stories, though compelling, really take away from the flow of the 40 minute film.
It was a really interesting and very cute nature documentary. It had stunning cinematography, great narration, songs, adventure and a great storyline. It's one of the best nature movies ever made. Nature lovers of all ages should enjoy this one.
