    A good summation of the greatest feat of exploratory adaptation since Ulysses.

    You've read the books and seen the photos... and believe it or not, the documentary is just as good. The latest product of the Shackleton franchise proves once again that truth is stranger than Jack London.

The latest product of the Shackleton franchise proves once again that truth is stranger than Jack London. The amazing fortitude and sheer dumb luck that allowed every member of the Endurance crew to return home safely is showcased here in photos and a few snippets of film taken by crewmember Frank Hurley, interviews with modern-day experts and descendants of the crewmembers, and maps of the expedition's route. Think of this as a really classy Nova episode about one of the most amazing stories of true adventure ever. Expand

    No time to build on any of the characters in the 93 minute movie. I would strongly recommend any of the novels.

    This is a curious example of taking a hair-raising story and draining the drama from every corner, leaving it a bit flat and ultimately forgettable.
  3. Even knowing the happy outcome, Butler masterfully keeps us on the edge of our seats, and communicates the full horror and seeming hopelessness of the crew's situation every step of the way.
