Storyline

The story of the 1914-1916 Antarctic exploration mission of Sir Ernest Shackleton. The ship sails south, breaking the ice, and ultimately getting trapped by the fast-changing weather. The ship breaks up in the ice, and while 22 men and 70 dogs wait on Elephant Island, Shackleton and a crew of five take a 20-foot lifeboat 800 miles to South Georgia Island to mount a rescue mission. We also get a good look at the exotic animals of the region, particularly the penguins. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Great photography of Shackelton's Antarctic voyage
24 November 1999 | by (Dublin, Ireland) – See all my reviews

Anyone familiar with the incredible true story of Shackelton and his entire crews survival against seemingly impossible odds when their ship Endurance became trapped in Antartic ice will appreciate this documentary.

The quality of the pictures is outstanding for the time. Frank Hurley the expedition's offical photographer did an amazing job.

The first 2/3rds of the film is most interesting. As conditions worsened its clear that Hurley could not take so many photographs (he was confined to a pocket camera in the later stages).

The later part decends into a nature documentary of South Georgia. I would have preferred to see more pictures of the whaling station where Shackelton and two companions made contact with civilization after more than 2 years of struggle.

A fitting memorial to this century's most inspiring survival epic.
