Critic Reviews for Arctic Tale
"It's a playful study of Arctic life, starring a polar bear cub, its prey, and a tagalong fox -- with the inevitable dramatic moments when bear meets walrus."
This anthropomorphic Disneyfication -- presumably intended to give youngsters something to relate to -- is made worse by the film's elementary dialogue and Queen Latifah's crass 'n' brash delivery.
It doesn't take a cynic to wonder if editing trickery has been deployed to clarify or simply fabricate these events.
Partnering its ursine heroine's progress with that of a female walrus calf, Adam Ravetch and Sarah Robertson's documentary combines stunning wildlife footage with an environmental message.
A well-intentioned film that isn't a documentary and isn't a very good adventure story.
Audience Reviews for Arctic Tale
The footage was amazing and so were the stories of the animals they followed. It's very cute, but also really sad...
What do we learn watching this movie? Fuzzy baby bears are cuter than baby walruses. Being a wild animal is tough. Its made tougher when the walrus' breeding grounds are melting away.
So sad. Have tissues handy... Made me realize just how desperate it is to stop global warming. I have taken an active role in fighting this cause since watching this movie. This needs to end now.
