A rather slow developing plot makes this movie drawn out. The look at Inuit lifestyle, though, makes it worth the time to watch it.

On the Ice is a marvel of concentrated, classical storytelling. The flat, snowy landscape strips away all but the essentials from its tale. Full Review

It is an offbeat gem. Full Review

More than a moral dilemma is needed to make up for the uneven performances, slack pacing and wonky dialogue, and while MacLean certainly has a keen eye, the rest of his storytelling facilities haven't quite caught up with it yet. Full Review
Ella Taylor
In most respects, On the Ice is the kind of straight-ahead, underprivileged-teen drama beloved of Sundance audiences. Full Review

Film noir has seldom been so blanc. Full Review
