Artcic Tale traces the lives of two cold-climate creatures - a polar bear and a walrus - as they navigate the increasingly treacherous Arctic terrain. Is it super cool or will it leave you cold? We've got the review!

Arctic Tale - Frosty Friends

Arctic Tale begins with the first emergence of twin baby polar bears from their den. Nanu and her brother are only babies, but they already face danger at every turn. Meanwhile, a newborn walrus named Seela is also emerging into the world. What these two creatures can't possibly understand is that cameras are going to be following them for years and their every move is going to be narrated by Queen Latifah.

Arctic Tale - It's Getting Hot in Here

Arctic Tale documents more than just the lives of these northern creatures; it also shows us how climate change is making their tough Arctic lives even tougher. The warmer climate means less ice in the polar region, which means less food and fewer places to hide from predators for our furry friends.

Arctic Tale - Reality Bites

One animal's meal is another animal's mom. As the movie progresses, the little ones start learning about the harsh realities of their lives - including the deaths of friends and family. It's especially hard to know who to cheer on when the polar bears and walruses square off. But it's important to remember that there are no good or bad animals. Everyone is just doing what they need to do to survive.

Arctic Tale - DVD Features

The Arctic Tale DVD includes an interesting featurette on the labor-intensive process of making the film. It also has the theatrical trailer and a Are We There Yet? World Adventure: Polar Bear Spotting. The DVD is also in high-def, so be prepared to get seriously up close and personal with those polar bears!

Arctic Tale - Bottom Line

Artic Tale is not exactly a nature documentary that it seems to be. Rather than filming the same two animals for eight years, husband and wife filmmakers Adam Ravetch and Sarah Robertson piece together images from different animals to form one cohesive story. The movie manages to be moving (bring your tissues!) and inspiring, while still keeping a sense of humor. As the credits role, various kids are shown giving you tips on how to help save the environment. If your family follows them, you'll be helping your new polar pals in a big way!

    Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
