Poster for Against the Ice

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones) co-writes and stars in this true story thriller, set in the early 20th Century where two explorers' expedition turns into a sudden fight for survival. More

In 1909, Denmark's Alabama Expedition led by Captain Ejnar Mikkelsen (Coster-Waldau) was attempting to disprove the United States' claim to North-Eastern Greenland, a claim that was rooted in the idea that Greenland was broken up into two different pieces of land. Leaving their crew behind with the ship, Mikkelsen sleds across the ice with his inexperienced crew member, Iver Iversen (Joe Cole). The two men succeed in finding the proof that Greenland is one island, but returning to the ship takes longer and is much harder than expected.

This marks the first Netflix Original film from Iceland.

The pedestrian script and journeyman direction mislay the suspense...

The scenery... is rapturous, and the script combines arduousness, gallows humour and hope in just the right proportion.

Against the Ice is very square, very straight, and just naggingly average in all departments.

Well-intentioned and occasionally gripping but overall somewhat flat.

A familiar tale told robustly but with very little distinguishing flair.
