They can't get the simplest things right
This movie by Nicolas Cage and company is another to add to the bad. Opening credits blew it when they pan a laptop showing a active transfer while she randomly strikes the keyboard senselessly. What were they expecting this to add more realism you could see she was not typing and nothing appears on the screen except the transfer process. Obviously the film's editor should cut this to the floor but they probably thought nobody would care, that's why this is a B movie.
A good movie from Nicolas Cage in a long time
Like I always say, I do not write many reviews. First, I only write if the movie is extremely good and 2nd, if people are unnecessarily bashing a good movie or it has low rating. I decided to write this review because of 2nd reason.
It is not a really one of those great flicks with great acting and direction or with those grand budgets, like those of Tom Cruise. It is neither a low-budget film. It's kinda in the middle. It has original story, decent acting, it is well-paced, has balance of emotions and action. It is more like a feel good movie with drama, emotions, action and story all involved. Nicolas Cage had been doing worse movies, this is one of the good ones. I will recommend watching it. Rating given on IMDB is really low, 4.3 ? Come on, should have been 6.3 or something. Sometimes I feel like majority of us have lost that sense and touch of a good movie. I give it 7 out of 10.

Please do not let Shackleton make another movie.
This movie is a 1 raised to a 5 by Nicolas Cage. The writing and directing are a joke. The story is basic and okay, it is the actual lines that are written that are embarrassing, I would swear a 14 year old with zero life experience wrote it. Unfortunately, Shackleton had just enough family money and influence to make this. It is saved a little by the fact that Cage can do a lot without any directing. The other participants, can't call them actors, really needed some direction and just didn't get it. So I beg you, York (yes, that is his name, you know, like the peppermint pattie) I beg you take all that family money and "hard earned snowboarding money" and donate it to a charity, you are just not talented enough to use it properly.
