Movie Reviews

Made for TV movie that excludes a lot of information from th
(2 out of 5 stars)

"As a survivor of this event I found that there where a number of errors made and that the story line was the point of view of only a couple of people as far as events at the site where concerned. Production on this film was already under way when I was asked for my input. However it makes for good entertainment and gives a fair accounting of the hardships encountered by the survivors."
Great movie

"In the dead of winter, a C-130 military transport flying from Thule, Greenland to Alert, Canada crashes on an ice cap about 2 miles from Alert. Unfortunately, an arctic storm hampers rescue attempts, and a long, cold ordeal sets in. I, personally, thought this was an excellent movie"
Not bad for a made for TV movie

"I was stationed at RCAF Alert several decades before this event but knew some of the crew. Alert is the most northern occupied settlement in the world and is used nowdays to listen in on Russian submarine movements. They shot the film near Edmonton AB, which is about 3,000 miles south of Alert and with a completely different terrain. Having said that, they did a pretty good job of showing just how harsh conditions can be. My understanding is that the Chamberlain character was somewhat overdone as far as the guilt thing, but overall it's worth the watch."

"We have looked for this movie for awhile. Our kids remember it from long ago and loved it. I believe it is a true story but even if not it could have happened and the events are certainly believable. Good choice for our family."
