Our Score: 3 out of 5 stars
This film is with no doubt an inspirational story of two men’s journey to the North Pole. The film is written/producer/directed/starring Sebastian Copeland who is an award winning photographer, author and environmental activist. So right off the bat with this film you know you are going to get some beautiful shots of the landscapes.
The trip to the North Pole for Sebastian Copeland and Keith Heger, our explorers, was to commemorate the centennial of Admiral Robert Peary’s expedition in 1909. This was not a walk in the park especially since the expedition was 400-miles on foot throughout sub-zero temperatures. There is a message, of course, for this trip and this story and it is about the polar ice cap melting at an incredible speed.
The film definitely shows major struggle for our explorers but it also shows their passion. They encounter frost bite, weather conditions and many other issues. Overall even though the film was 85 minutes long, I found myself drifting a little about half through. This is probably due to the slow start before they leave to head to the North Pole. Still I was really felt for Sebastian and Keith as they completed this unbelievable journey.
