This film flew completely under the radar in theaters, only recouping $24 million of its $30 million budget. However, it seems like a nice enough family movie, based on the true story of a news reporter (The Office’s John Krasinski) and a Greenpeace volunteer (Drew Barrymore) trying to save a group of gray whales. Since it’s listed as a drama and has a PG rating, it may not be good for the wee ones.
The rest, however, will appreciate the 2.40:1 release’s great colors and sharp imagery. There’s also a hearty DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track to belt out some of that Arctic atmosphere. Other than that, the disc includes deleted scenes, a pair of featurettes, and commentary with director Ken Kwapis. Also, despite being a single-disc release, this one has a standard-def DVD on the flipside of the disc, as well as an UltraViolet Digital Copy option.
