Critic Reviews for Shackleton
Shackleton is all Branagh, a pure delight to watch as he maintains his humanity in the face of terror and becomes the brave face of his 50-plus men.
This survivalist drama lives off the strength of the incredible true story being depicted, and more importantly, from the hugely impressive leading performance from Branagh.
Audience Reviews for Shackleton
If you love bios or docudramas the way I do, you'll enjoy this one. A really great historical story with in-depth character and historical details that might bore some, but I found fascinating. This film takes it's time in telling the story so that you fully understand the character, and the obstacles he faced to accomplish his expedition. Wonderful A&E mini-series.
I normally love movies based on true stories but this one was too long and boring. There was only about an hour of this movie that I found interesting (once they were stuck on the ice). Watching them kill their animals upset me, too!
