Movie Reviews

ENTERTAINING BUT LACKED ACCURACY
G. SHRAMEK | COPPER CENTER, ALASKA | 02/11/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I can't believe how lightly this guy was dressed! Obviously Jack London has never been out at even 50 below much less 75 below. Jack's temperatures remind me of Cabella's temperature ratings on winter boots! Some are rated down to 150 below!! Now back in 1970 we built a green log cabin on the Yukon river halfway between Eagle, Alaska and Circle, Alaska, 40 air miles south of the Arctic Circle. We had an average DAYTIME temperature for the ENTIRE month of January of 57 below with two weeks straight of 65 below and one night of 80 below. The morning after it dropped to minus 80 it was 40 below INSIDE THE CABIN!! My Big Ben wind up clock had frozen up and stopped ticking at 2 AM! All this is a foundation to say that the movie lacked reality. Anyone dressed with no parka or insulated pants and with those poorly designed mukluks would have frozen in the first fifteen minutes of the movie! Just like anyone walking outside with Cabella's boots at 150 below would be INSTANTLY DEAD!! I've been out to take a leak at 72 below so can talk from experience. Also the "freezing spittle" made for a good movie but spittle doesn't freeze into balls at 75 below it VAPORIZES! When I took a leak at 72 below NOTHING EVER HIT THE SNOW! You could hear a fffffffffffssssst sound while watching the pee vaporize! So, I'd give the movie five stars for entertainment and two stars for accuracy. Gerry Shramek Copper Center, Alaska
