Unforgettable
7 December 2006 | by onlybygrace2000See all my reviews

Take Ridley Scott's "White Squall," Peter Weir's "Master and Commander," throw in a splash of "Titanic," and put Kenneth Branagh front and center in what is clearly the performance of an already illustrious career, and you have "Shackleton," one of the best and most invigorating true-life adventure stories ever made. It'll knock your socks off and then some. The performances are stellar all around, the cinematography gripping and evocative, the screenplay crackling with gutsy emotion, wry humor, and a fierce yet exquisite honesty that is rarely found in genre films. Do yourself a favor and see this amazing film.
