The Bottom Line

this film may be set in the cold, but it's guaranteed to make your heart melt. It's hard not to feel emotional when you watch these fantastic creatures struggle and survive in their daily lives in a part of the world many of us may never see. If you were a fan of Disney's Chimpanzee (another nature documentary following the life of a young chimpanzee) than this film will be right up your alley. The amazing scenery is made all the more real when you watch it on Blu-Ray. The only major drawback is that at just 40 minutes it's a short documentary, but luckily the DVD and Blu-ray include lots of extras to extend the adventure.

Imax: To the Arctic DVD + Blu-ray Rating:4
