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.

Looks great. I saw the trailer for this months ago.

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!

Holy shit was this amazing. So simple, yet the emotions so complex and felt every bit of what Mads’ character was going through. I was tense, elated, sad. Felt it all. This was an amazing performance in such harsh circumstances. Movies like this don’t come along very often and this is a must see. Just enthralling from beginning to end. And the way it ended, just wow. This is an Oscar worthy performance that unfortunately will never in a million years be seen by anyone noteworthy to make nominations or anything. Sheer brilliance by all involved and just in awe of something like this being made. Incredible film, even more incredible performance by a great actor.
