FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS
Arctic is a superb snowy survival drama that brings a chillier version to the man versus nature battle. While the slow survival narrative may not excite fans of more fast-paced thrillers, the authentic story, realistic themes and raw lead performance complemented by the immersive and immaculate cinematography and direction creates a brilliant cinematic experience of perseverance and hope. It is one of the best survival stories ever told.
★★★★★★★★½☆ 8.5/10 – Recommend
