The touching recreations of human survival are always interesting to watch. Though, they’re much more fascinating if they’re delivered as a documentary, incorporating interviews with the people involved. It helps to add a sense of realism and emotional impact to the story.
6 Below has gone for the more common device of dramatic retelling, where everyone is impossibly good looking and you can make some of the more boring bits turn into tense moments in the style of Man Vs. Nature.
That being said, 6 Below has got a good cast, led by Josh Hartnett and also featuring Mira Sorvino. The real question is can 6 Below heat things up at the Box Office?
6 Below is out in cinemas October 13th!
