Mads Mikkelsen (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Doctor Strange) delivers an engrossing tour-de-force performance as Overgård, a resourceful yet increasingly desperate man stranded in a remote, snow-covered wilderness. After a plane crash in an icy wasteland, Overgård must live by his wits as he waits for help to arrive. But when a long-awaited rescue effort fails, he faces a life-or-death decision: remain in the relative safety of his camp and hope to be found, or embark on an arduous trek that may be the only hope for both him and a critically injured stranger. Critics are calling this captivating, white-knuckle film "chilling and thrilling, heart-wrenching and heart-lifting" (Los Angeles Times).

Critics Consensus: Arctic proves that a good survival thriller doesn't need much in the way of dialogue to get by -- especially when Mads Mikkelsen is the one doing the surviving.
Well-made survival story has intense peril, some blood.
