A very well crafted documentary which will please all adventure seekers and beyond. I had never heard of that passage so for me this was not only a visual and entertaining experience but an informative one as well. The haunting scenery was beautifully captured by the cameramen and the music score is subtle and beautiful. Overall it was a very nicely made documentary even though I wish some of the characters had been more featured than others. Sprague -the director of the film, his friend diver and the cameraman end up being the most compelling in the film.
I give it three thumbs up!!

I came across this video as I was researching Nordhavns (the boat used in the expedition). So I came in to this expecting and hoping to see at least a little more about the boat and seamanship in general. At the very least I expected more about the thrill of the expedition and exploration (after all the synopsis says it "is a film about exploration, survival and family redemption.") What I got instead was primarily a reality show type drama between conflicting personalities, and a night or two stuck in ice. Basically it was all the family redemption part, none of the exploration. I wanted drama in the crossing of the Northwest Passage as presumably only 24 private boats have done this in the history of the world. Given that, it must be pretty difficult. The movie didn't seem to make it seem that way.

In this movie they state they got ~280 hours of footage during the expedition. I just wished they would have picked out a different ~90 minutes. Towards the end the people in the movie were saying they just couldn't wait until the expedition was over. Sprague was filmed kissing the dock repeatedly after ending the expedition presumably ecstatic it was over. I did the same once the final credits rolled.

(After a little back-and-forth with a "critic" in the comments, since I said that the filmmaker should have taken a more balanced approach with editing, I realized that I should have as well in my review. I'm really a 3.5 on this film still, but I'm adding a paragraph of what I liked to become more balanced.)

Less than half way through this documentary, I thought that the theme was something like, "You've got to break a few eggs to make an omelette." After the film was over, I think that that theme was correct. It's jut too bad that the filmmaker didn't understand his own theme while cooking up the final product.

A lot of people mistakenly believe that anything done well requires everyone to get along and act happy, no matter what happens. Pardon the expression, but that's some bull-you-know-what. Usually, good things require some chaos during the process. Life isn't like "American Idol" where all the contestants hug and kiss each other, acting like they want everyone else to succeed, even at their own detriment. That's all for the cameras. Behind the scenes, you know the contestants are backstabbing each other.

And this film felt a little bit like reality TV to me, except the players here weren't overly excited about being filmed during the process. I totally understand. Being filmed while trying to perform some task is too invasive, and people's behavior changes while they're being filmed. So this part I totally understood, although they all knew going in that they were making a documentary. Did they just sign on to something that they really shouldn't have?

The cinematography in this film is sometimes quite awesome.

This 'documentary' had little to do with exploration and focused entirely on the drama of an overprivileged family. Sprague Theobald is the only redeeming character.

The title of the review says it all. A decent production that was enjoyable but I was hoping for more nuts and bolts NW Passage material than conflict between crew members. Also, Sprague has a lot more patience than I would have with Clifton. He would have been treading water after the first one or two blow outs.

I guess I was looking for a lot more pages of exciting journey and not how to put adult kids back together. perhaps a two month trip to warm waters would have been in order to get the family settled and then do the trip. I would have enjoyed much more detail on the trip itself. It was not a page turner for me. Also the film skips a lot of detail that was the exciting part of the book.
