A man stranded in the Arctic after an airplane crash must decide whether to remain in the relative safety of his makeshift camp or to embark on a deadly trek through the unknown in hopes of making it out alive. Arctic is a notably quiet and captivating slow-build adventure film, starring Mads Mikkelsen as a researcher-explorer who has crash-landed in the frozen wilderness. It's a genre we know in our bones, one that feels so familiar it’s almost comforting. Like Castaway and All is Lost it's a tale of a shipwrecked soul that derives its spirit and design from the mythic fable of the form, Robinson Crusoe.
Arctic is terrifically enjoyable: its landscapes ring with brutal grandeur (the film was shot in Iceland), and the sense of danger is palpable and established with a sure directorial hand.
