Arctic is a cleverly constructed ode to our ongoing battle against the elements. Beautiful cinematography captures the stunning versatility of the landscape, from shimmering snow blowing mirage-like through the air to roaring winds which engulf all, to serene light glowing turquoise through the ice in a manner mimicking stained glass. But however mesmerising the vista, it is Mikkelsen’s captivating performance which elevates this movie above its counterparts.”  The Upcoming

I guess most survivor thrillers are kinda torture porn and Arctic is one in which the torture is dealt out by nature. The film’s biggest asset is Mads Mikkelsen’s understated performance, absorbing nature’s outrageous pummeling across the ice and snow. His one explosive response is when a polar bear finds them sheltering inside a snowcave. It’s a terrific scene. He is a terrific actor.”  Urban Cinefile
