Right on the heels of mega-turkey Lost Horizon comes this overproduced, lovingly hand composited Disney fantasy about Victorian explorers who discover a lost tribe of Vikings hidden in a warm green paradise at the North Pole.

I can’t recommend Island At The Top of the World, but I can claim it as an Oregon film, on the basis of the location shooting.
