A man stranded in the Arctic after an airplane crash must decide whether to remain in the relative safety of his makeshift camp or to embark on a deadly trek through the unknown in hopes of making it out alive.

"It’s pretty amazing just how compelling this is for being so simple, but it allows the viewer to really get wrapped up in the minutiae of it all: The performance, the landscape, the minor triumphs and major setbacks."
- Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
"The deliberate pacing, cinematographer Tómas Örn Tómasson's images reminding of the vulnerable human scale against the landscape and the skeletal narrative, bringing a refreshing purity to a classic predicament. "
- Liam Lacey, Original-Cin
"This film is definitely the Mads Mikkelsen show, and it is one of his most powerful, emotive performances to date. "
- Lorry Kikta, Lorry Kikta
"Arctic has the do-or-die chops to affirm Mikkelsen’s rugged allure, as well as its young filmmaker’s sensitive-showman promise. "
- Robert Abele, TheWrap
"Arctic tells this story of self-reliance and survival with such austerity and absolute integrity that the results are breathtaking."
- Oliver Jones. Observer
"A fine reminder of how cinematic language can and should transcend the spoken word... a meticulous portrait of survival and human determination."
- Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
"The simple yet intense scenario makes Arctic a taut, cohesive exercise for Penna and editor and co-writer Ryan Morrison. It's also a fine showcase for Mikkelsen, playing a man who's resourceful but no more heroic than he needs to be."
- Mark Jenkins, NPR
"Stirring cinematography by Tómas Örn Tómasson, who captures the film's stark Icelandic location with sweep and dazzle, plus an evocatively pensive, strings-heavy score by Joseph Trapanese, rounds out this enervating and exhilarating film."
- Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Mads Mikkelsen's virtuoso performance as a downed pilot trying to survive in the harshest of environments is the warm heart of this ice-cold killer of a movie."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Arctic is elegantly shot, crisp and unfussy, and seamless in its near-invisible use of digital effects, creating a persuasive you-are-there feeling that's rare in these days of flashy CG thrills."
- David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
