On the Big Board
|Predictably uplifting, but nothing particularly memorable
|Way, way too hard to watch. You'd think it's for dog lovers, but it's just overly traumatic.
|A good family drama, but almost too intensely bittersweet for kids.
|This is a very good movie if you can handle the insane tension. As an animal lover, it was far too much for me.
Based on a National Geographic article, Antarctica stars Paul Walker in the story of two explorers who go to the frozen continent in search of a meteorite. When the conditions become untenable, they are forced to leave their sled dogs behind and turn back.
Walker will portray a National Geographic reporter who accompanies a rescue team that goes out to save the dogs. Other cast members in the film include Jason Biggs and Bruce Greenwood. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
