Arctic (2019, D: Penna) S: Mads Mikkelsen, Maria Thelma Smáradóttir





A man stranded in the Arctic after an airplane crash must decide whether to remain in the relative safety of his makeshift camp or to embark on a deadly trek through the unknown in hopes of making it out alive.

From director Joe Penna (MysteryGuitarMan) and starring Mads Mikkelsen – ARCTIC is coming to theaters this February.

It’s Mads, so it’s an automatic watch for me. Looks good.

Big fan of Mads, but it does look like every other movie of this genre.
Just not feeling any warmth for it, I think I'll pass...

This opened near by and I just watched it -- it's one of the best films of the year. It's a great doubleheader with All Is Lost.

Saw this on a plane coming home. It is just a straight up survival movie. No extra bullshit. It just throws you in. It was great.

I really loved this. It’s a no frills survival story but it works. It was refreshing seeing this type of film where the characters actually make smart decisions and although they’re placed in terrible situations it’s not through any fault of their own.

Mads kills it in this! Very little dialogue but you can tell exactly what he’s feeling through his facial expressions and emotions. Just a great barebones film, all around!
