Daredevil relic hunter brothers Jonas and Jace are called off a Spanish museum job the head a team assembles hastily by collector-tycoon Mills to rescue his other team, headed by Jonas's ex Villers, on Artic Canada's Monster island.

It turns out the bloodthirsty species is alive, and far more dangerous the polar bears, with a primate-like social life, yet Mills offers a fat premium to catch one alive, despite the rising body count, but his rival also has surprises in store.Written by

excellent, not pretentious and a cracking good laugh
I was frustrated by another critics review given only 20 minutes into this great flick. Perhaps we really are the victims of high budget films losing our ability to appreciate anything with a budget under $100M.
As a low budget movie made on a shoestring this movie is great, the acting is sufficiently tongue in cheek for you to see the "ham i ness" as really a spoof on the high budget/ entirely CGI films.
The storyline mimics the feel of the early generation of scifi and is a great reminder of the originals in this space, "lost in space", "doctor who" and even "the day the earth stood still".
If you a movie that is clearly trying to be a very real movie, made by very real people then this is a movie for you. Also take a look at another one of David Hewletts home grown greats. "A dogs breakfast" then you will truly get an insight into this movie makers great ability to deliver a great product while gently tweaking the nose hairs of the movie making establishment.
