Good footage, documentary lacked content
3 November 1999 | by See all my reviews

The footage in this movie looks great on a big screen, however the documentary left me desiring a lot more. There are long sections with mediocre sound effects/music where the creator could have provided a lot of interesting information about penguins, glaciers, Antarctica, etc. This is supposed to be a documentary, after all!

I give it 8 stars for good visuals, 2 stars for lack of content = 5 stars overall.
