Emma M's Review for To the Arctic

Well, I think this movie is very educational. I don't ave many words for it. You'll have to watch it for yourself. I am in the 5th grade and this movie has come up very interesting to me. I would give it a higher level. Maybe 10? Hopefully any viewrs who see this take their children or just go to see a very good movie!

To The Arctic

To The Arctic is kind've my kind of movie. There is nothing innapropiate in the movie. The only parts that are a little scary are when the male polar bear is chasing the mom and her cubs. Otherwise it is a very short heartwarming movie.

Fun AND Educational

This was a great movie. My 5 year old brother didn't even realize it was educational! It kept him entertained while I did my homework.

Don't bother.

Borrowed this DVD from the library.. really glad I didn't spend any money on it! Sure the photography is beautiful but this is not much more than a propaganda film about global warning (not even offering any hope). The format takes away from the enjoyment of the scenery as there are many mini picture-in-picture segments. The focus switches around a bit and is not always about the polar bears (DVD case/description is very misleading). Too bad they wasted all that great footage on what could have been an entertaining and educational story about a mother polar bear.
