Worth Watching

I'm usually fairly stingy when giving my star ratings, so my 7 star rating here is meant as a high rating when coming from me. I felt the events were mostly realistically portrayed which I appreciated since it's based on a true story. I think Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has a characteristic of likability that makes you root for him even if the characters he plays might normally be hard to side with (similar to Bryan Cranston), and that's helpful in this case. If you like exploration and survival stories this is definitely worth watching.

Greenland explained in Iceland.

"Against The Ice" is a movie that explains why Greenland belongs to Denmark and part of it was contested by the Americans. This is the plot and storyline, very simple. Ejnar (played by Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Iver (played by Joe Cole) were real people who embarked on a grim expedition in 1909 to follow up on a previous Danish expedition in 1907. The movie is slow paced but thanks to the cinematography it did not bother me at al. Don´t look forward to great dialogues because the most sound you will hear, will come from the wind howling. The acting performances from Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Joe Cole were very convincing as opposed to the unconvincing CGI polar bears. If you´re a history buff or nature fan, you will definitely like this movie.

Ignore the children leaving reviews

It's not an "easy" watch which probably explains most of the low ratings. Ignore them. Watch a well made film with real characters experiencing overwhelming hardships to an ending that . . .

Watch it.

@shane101 - I'd like to request that movie about the idiot who thought STEALING movies for free - is somehow going to support one country over another.

@PrinceHarry No, that's your area of expertise, judging from what you wrote, including total inability to provide any arguments. Now go search for the movie "1984" the kind of society you love.

@PrinceHarry since you want culture including cinema to be weaponized against society and people, as they did with sports, information etc you deserve to live as a slave to a totalitarian regime.

TV "news"...I turned that circus show nonsense off for good 5 years ago and have not looked back. Keep putting up Russian films because no need to punish the people at the bottom as a result of the rich man's game.
