The premise for "Arctic" is so simple it's almost silly to describe.It's been done more than a few times in movies, so it's understandable if hearing that provokes a yawn.Yet, with barely any dialogue, traditional storytelling methods or even a cute pet or inanimate object to help, director Joe Penna and star Mads Mikkelsen have made a riveting and precisely plotted film worthy of other greats in the genre.Don't confuse "Arctic" with "Polar," Mikkelsen's other early 2019 movie."Arctic" lacks assassins and Vanessa Hudgens.
