Editorial Reviews

To The Arctic (DVD)

An extraordinary journey to the top of the world, the documentary adventure "To The Arctic" reveals a compelling tale of survival. Narrated by Oscar® winner Meryl Streep, the film takes audiences into the lives of a mother polar bear and her twin seven-month-old cubs as never before captured on film, as they navigate the changing Arctic wilderness they call home. Captivating and intimate IMAX® footage brings moviegoers up-close and personal with this family's struggle in a frigid environment of melting ice, immense glaciers, spectacular waterfalls and majestic snow-bound peaks.

There is nothing wrong about creating a documentary pro global warming or denying it really exist. For the most part we live in a free society where anyone can defend any position he/she chooses. The problem I see is when people uses trickery to achieve a goal. This movie has an obvious agenda. Not to show the beauty of the arctic or the majestic polar bears, as I thought it was when I bought it. The purpose of this movie is to enlist viewers to join the global warming front. Fine, but be truthful about it in the title, cover, description, wherever, just be honest so those who decide to PAY for it know what they're paying for. That said, the scenes are of top quality and so is the music so I don't think it was a total waste of money and time, hence the 3 stars. I would give it a 5 star rating but I just don't like being misled.

Note: I saw this in the theater on the big IMAX screen, so I didn't get the chance to see the extras on the DVD.

This is a wonderful movie with a message, but I'll warn anyone coming into this: this film is very focused on global warming. It's an important message, but I felt that at times this film didn't entirely know what to focus on: the polar bears or the threat to their environment. As a result we don't really have a good look at either. To the Artic is only 40 minutes in length, so this leaves it with a bit of a handicap.

The movie is gorgeous to watch, so even with the film feeling a bit muddled in its focus you still have tons of gorgeous scenery to watch. The film work is really amazing here, with tons of close ups of adorable polar bear behavior and breathtaking shots of the glistening ice. There are also some shots of how the scenes are shot, both human and remote cameras. I think this was one of the more interesting aspects of the movie because at times it shows how dangerous it can be for the equipment and the persons going underwater.

I think that this was toned down a lot for younger audiences and the short length, but at times I kind of feel that they could have done more with this. I remember watching far more intense films when I was younger on PBS and not getting too scared, so I really wish that they'd gone a bit more in depth either way. I do like that this film mentioned how we impact the environment, but I wish that they'd elaborated just a little. Maybe giving some suggestions on how to help or something along those lines?

Overall though this is still very much worth the price of admission to your local theater and worth renting.

The trailer makes this movie seem like a story about a polar bear family. Only a portion included the focus on a bear family. The majority was a documentary on global warming. The narrative was too advanced for young kids to understand while the conclusions were too unfounded for young kids (and adults) not to question. The repeated drum beat of "the ice is melting" took away from the value of what could be an entertaining family story. The anecdotal examples used and lack of true evidence cited make the narrative difficult to even listen to regardless of one's stance on environmental change. Unfortunately, the beautiful imagery was tainted by the in-your-face agenda being force fed while you attempt to learn more about and be entertained by polar bears.

I watched this documentary in the New England Aquarium, it is beautiful. I cried as well as my girlfriend, it's just touchy. I've been looking for it ever since, and I found it, and of course purchased it.

Life is rough for the animals in the arctic, but nature is just to gorgeous.

Do yourself a favor and watch it, or buy it.

We love Polar Bears and the scenery was fantastic. But, leave the friggin politics out of it! This film is not much different than the one called "Arctic Tale" made about 10 year ago! Same old song and dance. They also were Global Warming fanatics, yet, 10 years later, the Polar Bears are still here and we're not covered by oceans! Enough already. Global Warming is just a scam to line Al Gore's and other liberals' pockets with trillions of dollars! Liberals tried to pull this same scam back during the depression, look it up. Roosevelt felt it wasn't the time to burden people that were jumping out of windows because they lost everything. It was shelved. Almost 90 years later, we're still here and so are polar bears!
Too bad such nice scenery was wasted on a liberals' opinion!

If I wanted to hear someone's thoughts on Global Warming I could easily have looked it up on the internet. Only 10 minutes into the movie it goes off on a global warming tirade. Since Man Made Global Warming has never ben proven as fact, (models, schmodels, I have coded many and mine work), I turned off the movie and relegated it to the garbage can. What a waste of money. It should have been titled "Gloal Warming Assumptions About The Arctic". Then I would have known not to waste my money.

I always have a big expectations on every IMAX production for the astonishment 3d quality but this time it wasn't similar at all, from other movies. It contain some nice 3D moments but don't worth the price of the Blu-ray.
