Mads Mikkelsen stars in this original film from Netflix, and he usually does high quality films (Casino Royale, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Valhalla Rising to name a few). But you'll wish you could have the time back spent watching Polar. The opening scene, which stars Johnny Knoxville, is completely devoid of any intrigue, character building (with the exception of overlaid graphics telling you who each character is), and plot. The production quality too, even though presented in 4k/HDR, is fairly low. It seems like a B-grade movie that only aspired to be a B-grade movie. If you like Mads, don't waste your time on Polar go see Arctic.
