Unique survival in the wilderness story. Enjoyed it, very well done. Regarding the bear encounter I would have attempted a double toe hold on the bear until it submitted rather than the approach used in the film.

VERY GOOD 1997 outdoor adventure movie - augmented by a mélange of David Mametian metaphoric styling.

I rarely watch a movie more than once, and I don't know what keeps drawing me back to this movie. Any time I stumble upon in on cable, I watch it again. It is true that Anthony Hopkins is an excellent actor, I've also seen "The World's Fastest India" and "Legends of the Fall" multiple times. I am fond of a good survival tale... this one fits the bill.

A suspenseful film featuring three epic conflicts, man versus nature, man versus man, and man versus bear!

Sir Anthony Hopkins is great in this film as a well read businessman who knows what it takes to survive in the Alaskan wilderness!

The movie has a slow start, but once the action switches to the wilderness, it's an exciting ride with a few surprises.

Good movie. Survival in the wilderness is always exciting, and you learn some things, like using your wristwatch as a compass? I never knew that. Killing the bear is the most scary part---I can't imagine how they filmed that, and how it would feel to really have to survive with no gear or help.

Pretty much "The Grey" with a smaller cast.
