Ordeal in the Arctic

Ordeal in the Arctic

Everybody expected military flight Boxtop 22 from Thule into the vast frozen wilderness of Canada's North Western territories to be boring routine, but in a matter of minutes a crash reduces Gulf War veteran pilot Captain John Couch's crew and passengers to ever-growing despair. First they consider themselves relatively lucky as 14 out of 18 aboard are alive, including Captain Wilma De Groot, a medical doctor, but as time progresses the merciless cold makes it seem hopeless to check on Bob and Sue, who cannot be moved near the only campfire, while rescue attempts on land from Alert ('only' about 10 miles) and by air from Edmonton (8 hours flying) take no less then 32 hours to reach the plane wreck...

Lisa S (gb) wrote: i love tihs movie. the characters are good and the dialogue is really funny and the acting is good!

Private U (fr) wrote: Eye opening. Everyone should watch this film.

Rob S (gb) wrote: Great premise for a movie but painfully done. I enjoyed reading the sub one star reviews much more than watching the film. It fails as a discussion of philosophy or logic and has a tendency despite its stated objective of testing reason and logic to instead push a left leaning emotion based morality.

Marc L (es) wrote: D'un cyber-onirisme visuel qui n'est pas sans rappeler les "Ghost in the shell" de Mamoru Oshii, "Le Roi des Ronces" se range egalement dans les oeuvres d'anticipation metaphysiques comme les Japonais savent les concocter. Outre l'intert offert par le traitement du sujet - en gros, La Belle au Bois dormant revisitee par Matrix, Aliens et Resident Evil -, cet Anime seduit egalement par sa parfaite maitrise des principes du Survival tels qu'etablis par les jeux video et le cinema hollywoodiens, un genre finalement peu exploite par les films d'animation. Cependant, le passage d'une serie un long-metrage ne s'est pas fait sans dommages et "Le roi des ronces" semble souvent tente de mettre en avant ses evidents appts visuels pour faire oublier un scenario rendu confus et elliptique par le format film, mais dont les grandes lignes permettent de percevoir le reel potentiel.

Alex S (ru) wrote: Some conveniences and a weak ending take some of he intensity away, but Transsiberian is lifted up by its tense atmosphere created from claustrophobic direction and bleak landscape, and some very convincing performances from its excellent cast.

Ashley L (fr) wrote: If you were expecting something like the Friday series, don't waste your time. Ice Cube, no need for your movies to have a message, just make us laugh even if the story has no point like you used to!

Justin B (kr) wrote: It plays out like an sfx/makeup demo reel more than an actual film but its an ambitious and gooey little black comedy that was perhaps ahead of its time with the health obsessed suburban satire.

Dennis F (ca) wrote: This was'nt even funny. Boring as hell.

Roman P (es) wrote: This movie is not about manipulations and intriguing. Manipulations do the visibility that they can conquer reality, but people around you simply not interesting in somebodies arrogant reckonings even if they can kill. The final wedding scene is not the triumph of manipulations but is the triumph of life (complexity).
