Arctic 2018

7.5

There are far too many things that are worse in life than being on a journey with Danish super talent Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, The Hunt).

And that is what this 98-minute movie is: an almost one-actor movie set in the arctic. Mikkelsen plays a man trying to survive a plane crash, which at some point becomes about deciding whether to embark on a dangerous journey or stay in the plane rubble and risk a slow death.

It’s an extremely well-acted movie with nail-biting suspense. Bonus fact: it received a 10-minute standing ovation when it premiered at the Cannes film festival this year.

Put on a warm coat, make a cup of hot chocolate, and enjoy.

Superb! I enjoyed it thoroughly. It may not be for everyone.But if you have liked Mads Mikkelsen in the past this may be his best work to date.

It was brilliant. It never quite went where i thought the plot would go. Mads and his co star were amazing.
