Nice story, but rather tedious.
7 September 2018 | by FredFromFloridaSee all my reviews

Freezy frosty story of a family that gets lost sailing in Alaska in the winter (why?). They tough it out, they endure. They must be atheists; nobody prays during this ordeal. I had to fast forward through a lot of this movie... other than the shipwreck, there isn't much action.
