Editorial Reviews

Set in the vast snow kingdom at the top of the world, Arctic Tale is a real life adventure from the people who brought you March Of The Penguins. Join narrator Queen Latifah as she follows two very different arctic creatures, Nanu, the polar bear cub and Seela, the walrus pup, through exciting and harrowing struggles for survival. Armed only with their natural instincts and mothers' guidance, these inspiring animals face countless trials and challenges in a beautiful icebound world that is rapidly melting beneath them.

I love this film because it's a documentary on animals and how they live in the Arctic.

Format: DVD
(3 1/2 *'s) `An Arctic Tale' is not exactly woven as neatly as `March of the Penguins'. Playful and at times cutesy-pie like the walrus pups and polar bear cubs presented, narrator Queen Latifah gives a comic edge to what might have been just another polar survivor adventure. Personification is a key component to the charm of her presentation, but this gets extended into the ending, which fails to stay with the story and becomes a springboard to a soapbox lecture at the end.

As with any National Geographic special, some of the cinematography ("principal" [their spelling] cinematographer, Adam Raveld) is awesome. Without a widescreen TV, I was thoroughly satisfied. The story is the tender and terrific rendition of one mother polar bear and her cub, Nanu, and one mother walrus and her pup, Selah. We see the lifecycle go from each of their births and follow their community adventures until each is old enough to become a mother herself.

As a G-rated venue, meant to enlighten and entertain, I think discerning information is needed for its potential audience. Just as the ice splits into two during an arctic summer solstice, the movie can have that kind of "polarizing" [sorry!] effect. Walking on thin ice, I'll try to be as fair as possible, nonetheless. Seeing the arctic creatures fend for themselves as their domain is melting more than previously, I knew one could discern an environmental message in layers just below the surface.

At the end we get children pleading for the audience to amend their lives to help save the characters in the movie. Now, I am split with a verdict of the ending. Part of me, having grown up in the seventies, likes the idea of conserving and sharing resources.

This is not a global warming film! It doesn't need to be. It is obvious what is happening. The Arctic is disappearing and a polar bear named Nanu and his childhood friend Seela the walrus are now coping with the fact that their world is disappearing. This National Geographic Film covers an eight year period in which Nanu and Seela grow up, play, love and struggle against the elements of changing nature. At times the film seems like a documentary, and at other times like a wild life adventure. The film is narrated by Queen Latifah (her rendering simply did not work for me at all...I wanted Morgan Freeman!). The story is very manipulative and definitely goes for the heartstrings of younger children. It is informative and sometimes enchanting, but as an adult I did feel a little bit used by this film. All in all, a one time view will suffice for adults. Children will like this one better.

Bought this to watch with my granddaughters and while it is a bit lengthy for the under 6 crowd, they stayed interested and enjoyed it. For adults, the photography is superb and it is also informative. Latifah does a grand job. I recommend it for everyone with grandchildren for fun and educational viewing together.

Having spent a year on St. Lawrence Island hunting walrus 50 years ago the pictures of the Walrus bring back a lot of memories. The quality of the filming is fantastic. I use the blue-ray DVD to show off the quality of my new big screen HD TV.

There are some moments where wild life can be over powering for the young. As with many real nature shows.
This movie is a have to own if your an animal lover.
Very heart warming and at points very sad.

Format: DVD
Anyone who says this movie has a liberal agenda is out of touch with what is going on in the natural world. The film is excellent because it shows how the struggle for survival is becoming more difficult for Arctic animals since the ice is forming later and later each year and to a much lesser degree. The movie ended on a very positive note encouraging kids and adults to change the way they live in order to protect our planet. The movie's message was, what we do in our homes and lives effects how these animals live in their homes. The movie is beautifully filmed and touched my husband and I so much we plan on donating our surplus check to environmental groups working to protect the Arctic. The film is so moving and inspiring for kids. I am a teacher and I plan on showing it to my class as well.

This movie was fantastic for our entire family. It did NOT have a political agenda, it was just stating what is actually happening in the arctic. I liked it and felt it helped to educate my children to the problems that are occurring. WE LOVE this movie and would recommend it to any family who wants something fun for the kids yet truthful and educational, the more we educate our children about how our planet is changing the better they will be to help it in their own generation.
