  • Makes an unpersuasive case that humans are to blame for the shrinking ice caps. show more

  • The impact of Arctic Tale is blunted by its length (it feels long at 85 minutes) and by its script. show more

  • The flat narration by Queen Latifah doesn't help, but Adam Ravetch and his wife Sarah Robertson's nature film, Arctic Tale, fails to inspire the kind of rapturous response we felt for "March of the Penguins" for other reasons. show more

    Music superstar Queen Latifah is so "right on the money", about nature preservation. She narrates this documentation of our Earth's dwindling resources; Such creatures as the seal and the polar bear, are vastly crowding together to find shelter and food. You feel for Nanu,and the other animals,as you watch them go through desperate struggles. The World belongs to us,as well as the living things around us. We should be considerate and conservative of our "blessings".

    I thought this was an Excellent movie. A total wake up call on what is really happening. Beautiful photography of how the Artic is and lives. One film I would rate a thumbs up and pass on to others to watch.
