Best Version Of This Adventure
1 July 2017 | by j-pudwillSee all my reviews

I've seen several versions of this amazing true story. Almost all of them use the same still photography and motion pictures taken during this expedition.

Yet this is the only version that really seems to get it all right - it lays out all the details, fleshes out the characters, and puts all the events into their proper, gripping perspective. And it's all told at a crisp pace that keeps your interest racing every last second for its entire 120 minutes.

The bad news - this hard-to-find DVD is out of print and hideously expensive ($149 used or $260 new) at Amazon.

The good news - you can watch it for free on YouTube.

Very highly recommended.
