Seen on TV as "Shipwreck", overall pleasant film for the younger set.
22 March 2002 | by (Florida USA) – See all my reviews

This film is a near technical disaster as city folk attempt to survive in the wilds of Alaska, yet the photography and the superb participation by the animals, as well as the credible acting of the human participants bring off a pleasant and suspenseful film for any family. Overlook the technical improbabilities and enjoy a thoroughly enjoyable film.
