IMDbRotten Tomatoes

Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen does wonders with the role of Overgård, the downed pilot of a small cargo plane who’s awaiting a rescue that may never come. Overgård carves a giant SOS in the snow and pokes holes in the ice to catch fish. This potent feature-directing debut for Joe Penna, is compellingly practical about showing what it takes to stay alive in the frozen wilderness. (Iceland filled in for the North Pole as a location.) There’s a commendable lack of Hollywood bullshit in how the pilot takes on the challenge of passing Mother Nature’s grueling endurance test.

Overgård isn’t alone for long. A rescue chopper crashes in the howling winds. One of the two pilots survives (Icelandic actress Maria Thelma Smáradôttir), but she is barely conscious. Packing her up on a sled made from the plane’s door, he begins a trek toward what seems likes an increasingly hallucinatory deliverance….What takes Arctic to the next level is Mikkelsen’s stirringly expressive face. Known for playing villains (Casino Royale) Mikkelsen invests Overgård with a bracing humanity that you root for every step of the way. –Rolling Stone
“Proves that a good survival thriller doesn't need much in the way of dialogue to get by -- especially when Mads Mikkelsen is the one doing the surviving.” Rotten Tomatoes
“Here is a gripping and efficient addition to the rugged survivalist thriller genre.” The Guardian
Cast Mads Mikkelsen, Maria Thelma Smáradóttir
