      Robert W. Butler Kansas City Star A grab bag of material -- a bit of history, a dash of science, some wildlife-film elements... and, of course, a load of fantastic large-format photography that captures the continent's icy wonders with spectacular clarity.

      Audience Member good doc about the south pole. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member The penguins segment was the best and the underground filming of the pond caverns. Makes you want to visit...lol Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty good IMAX picture. Doesn't stand up next to Planet Earth, but not bad just the same. Interesting to hear climate change talked about in a 1991 picture and compare the rhetoric to a picture released today. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member The one I saw was "Emperors of Antarctica", maybe the US title is different? This was interesting, but I would have preferred more detail about the penguins, and less about how hard it was to film the penguins. (QuickFlix, 30/05/2007) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Stunning pictures from another place we know so little about. I have already been to the North Pole, I am determined to make it to the South as well. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Quite a poor movie to say the least..... Certainly not worth the time to watch it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
