At a glance, it looks like a documentary about polar bears. In actuallity, it's a documentary on the condition of the arctic, and the scary situation it is getting in. In any case, it's well made.

Here are 3 things that lost this exceptionally well-photographed, IMAX presentation some very serious points.

(1) It contained some really pathetic, "grate-on-your-nerves" songs from 71-year-old, pop icon (and former-Beatle), Paul McCartney.

(2) Its phone-in narration (which was absolutely "dry-as-a-bone") was lifelessly delivered by veteran actress, Meryl Streep.

(3) This "message" documentary also got a bit out of hand when it came to driving home the point that it was, indeed, all man's fault for being the one who was creating all of the greenhouse gases that were causing global warming to accelerate (which, in turn, was destroying the Arctic environment for polar bears and other such cold-climate wildlife).

But, on the other hand - There certainly was some very outstanding camera-work done in this documentary whose story traced the journey of a mother polar bear and her two, 7-month-old cubs as they bravely navigated their way across the ever-changing Arctic wilderness.

Truly beautiful movie. Watched with my daughter on Mother's Day weekend. A great tribute to mother animals alike.

IMAX documentary goes to the Arctic, highlighting the threat posed by climate change. Stunning footage throughout of a part of the world that needs to be protected. The film is hampered somewhat, however. With IMAX films, because the directors and producers are usually of a certain age, the film composers often find themselves obliged to incorporate music that was popular in the 60s or 70s. Composers usually adapt and weave that music into their own scores, minimalizing song versions. However, this one seemed to have no end of Paul McCartney music- either the man himself or covers- and I found that the excessive use of it detracted from the film.
