Mads Mikkelsen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Doctor Strange) delivers an engrossing tour-de-force performance as Overgård, a resourceful yet increasingly desperate man stranded in a remote, snow-covered wilderness. After a plane crash in an icy wasteland, Overgård must live by his wits as he waits for help to arrive. But when a long-awaited rescue effort fails, he faces a life-or-death decision: remain in the relative safety of his camp and hope to be found, or embark on an arduous trek that may be the only hope for both him and a critically injured stranger. Critics are calling this captivating, white-knuckle film "chilling and thrilling, heart-wrenching and heart-lifting" (Los Angeles Times).

Critics Consensus: Arctic 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.

Well-made survival story has intense peril, some blood.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Arctic is a survival thriller about a stranded man (Mads Mikkelsen) who must decide whether to take a dangerous trek to save an injured woman's life. It has moments of very intense peril and danger, as well as some blood: a stomach wound is stapled shut, and an injured leg leaves a trail of blood in the snow. A minor character dies, and there's a helicopter crash. A polar bear is involved in a jump scare, and a man catches a fish and whacks its head to knock it unconscious. Language includes two uses of "f---ing." Sex, drinking, drugs, smoking, and consumerism aren't issues. This lean, minimalist film is expertly made and rises well above many other examples of the genre; plus, it's all about solving problems and overcoming challenges.
