Documentary
The message of global warming’s detrimental effects on the awesome animals indigenous to the titular ice locale is commendable. The 10 years of gorgeous footage slimmed down into this brisk 85-minute documentary is spectacular. But the soundtrack’s cheesy ’70s tunes, like “We Are Family,” endless walrus farts and the occasional lame humor in Queen Latifah’s narration are unforgivable. Those minor quibbles aside, audiences will enjoy following a small polar bear family and a herd of walruses through their separate journeys while surviving the melting ice flows. This breathtaking eye candy—co-directed by Adam Ravetch and Sarah Robertson and penned by a trio of writers, including Al Gore’s daughter Kristin—is no March of the Penguins, but certainly worth the price of admission.
