Mads gets to show an intense vulnerability for once. That's worth seeing, though one wishes Arctic complicated its life-and-death ordeal a little more, or at least varied its obstacles.

It's broad stuff, and well-trod terrain for a movie that takes place in uncharted territory, but it cuts straight to the difference between endurance and survival.

Arctic is elegantly shot, crisp and unfussy, and seamless in its near-invisible use of digital effects, creating a persuasive you-are-there feeling that's rare in these days of flashy CG thrills.

There are no cut corners, no overly blatant only-in-the-movies gambits. Mikkelsen's stranded pilot has little to rely on beyond his will, so we feel at every step that he could truly be us.

I guess most survivor thrillers are kinda torture porn and Arctic is one in which the torture is dealt out by nature.

A harrowing tale of survival, Arctic relies on visuals of crisp white snow and vast landscapes to lure us into the reality in which Mads Mikkelsen's pilot is stranded.
