I just got back from the IMAX Theater, and unfortunately, "Arctic" fell far short of my
expectations. I was hoping for something akin to "March of the Penguins" in 3D, with the same narrator throughout. Please know that Meryl Streep narrates less than 50% of this film, with random speakers narrating the balance. The film was somewhere around 45 mins. long. While very briefly chronicling the woes of a polar bear family,"Arctic" seemed to only show a week in the life of these creatures, as opposed to following them on an epic journey. There are clips of other Arctic animals as well, such as caribou, walruses, seals, etc. The musical score was inappropriate for the beautiful and breathtaking scenery, and seriously detracted from the film. Quiet contemplative music, classical in nature, (or even silence!) would have made a far greater contribution to the success of "Arctic". BBC's Blue Planet Frozen Seas DVD will provide you with a better learning experience for around the same $.
