Consider that Movies are meant to move people. - Arctic Tale does that.
4 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie is all real, and based on 15 years of experience and observation in the Arctic. Everything in the movie has been fact checked in three separate sources by National Geographic, who demands strict scrutiny. The movie will make you laugh and cry. It educates and entertains. It is a fine story. Queen Latifah delivers her narration very straight. she is warm and funny. The movie is different then what your used to because it presents itself as a story, it reveals itself from the point of view of the animals like a story book. It does not stop the story to describe scientific facts and explanations, instead the facts and information are part of the story naturally. This allows the film to tell a story that involves it's audience, putting them into the here and now with the animals.

This movie is designed for young people and families. Just because it does not use scientific language that would clutter the beautiful imagery does not mean that the story is not authentic.

gather up some kids and go to Arctic tale. You will be moved by this movie.
