Arctic, starring Mads Mikkelsen is a story of survival and the human spirit that will keep viewers entranced. The film tells the story of a stranded Arctic explorer, who when a rescue attempt goes wrong, must attempt a harrowing journey to save his, and his would be rescuer’s lives. The film does an amazing job showing just how far an individual will push themselves to survive in deadly conditions while facing impossible odds. Mikkelsen’s character faces multiple challenges on his trek to an outpost, such as carrying his injured companion across hazardous terrain, encountering polar bears, getting frostbite, and sustaining injuries. The film showcases beautiful cinematography that highlights the incredible Icelandic landscape where the film was shot. Mikkelsen, in his admittedly toughest performance yet, will make you believe you are truly watching a man’s struggle for life and Mother Nature’s harsh unforgiving temperament to those who test her.   Overall Rating: B+
