  • 5 stars "This is most certainly one of the best family movies of 2015. We can only understand so much, right? Well of course it is right, because the story is not too complex, it is cuddly because of the young polar bear cup, it is charming because of Moynahan and Goran Visnjic and it is adventurous because.... well because you are going to have to watch the movie itself. I don't want to spoil anything here, this movie is both fun and good in the same time."
  • 4 stars "I believe that this is simply a good movie. Haven't seen Bridget Moynahan act lately... also loved Goran Visnjic. I believe that this man has a bigger potential and I would like to see him play in a bigger project. Dakota Goyo, great lad, will be an excellent actor one day (he already played in Thor and Real Steel). Anyhow, the movie - I liked the story. It is a about a polar bear cub, and it gives us a more human side with the whole situation. Sadly the boy and Goran Visnjic get separated (the boy is left with the cub, but Visnjic knows the terrain) and there is a little adventure around the corner."
