Low quality movie
2 September 2019 | by gtufeanu-90335See all my reviews

It's a shame that this movie was badly done. It could have been a hundred times better. Instead of that I was left with a dull feeling of emptiness and waste of my time. Not well made, mediocrely played and lots of important facts missing. Whatever the director chose to highlight in this movie it didn't sparked. Left out a multitude of better facts which would have been much more interesting. Never mentioned the international team who accompanied Amundsen to the South Pole is one of the shameful facts. It's an affront to the others members of this celebrated team. His despotic and neurotic figure, the fight to be the first with any price it made him an unattractive character. At least to me. According to this movie he did all that expedition for himself and his glory , not for Norway or the rest of humankind. It brings his efforts to nothing ! Bad movie !
