    Synopsis


    Eight Below
    Eight brave sled dogs search for the master who is looking for a way to rescue them in this adventure drama. An American geologist (Bruce Greenwood) flies to Antarctica to participate in a project at the United States Research Base, where he teams up with arctic guide Jerry Shepard (Paul Walker) and his best friend, Cooper (Jason Biggs). The scientist soon discovers that Shepard also has eight other valuable friends -- a pack of sled dogs he's worked with for years, who have rescued him from a number of tight spots. As the three men explore a frozen mountain region, an unexpected accident coupled with a massive storm front forces them to fly to safety, leaving the dogs behind. Shepard is determined to rescue his canine friends, but he has to wait until the weather will allow him to travel back to the mountain, while the dogs struggle against the elements to survive as they attempt to make their way back home. Eight Below was inspired by a true story involving Japanese researchers exploring the Antarctic in 1957; the story was made into the film Nankyoku Monogatari. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Great true story, but terribly sad.

      Would've given it 5 stars! But too sad for me! But it also has amazing things happen in it as well! A must see with a box of Kleenex!! Great but terribly sad true story of death, survival, courage, the great love of animals and the people that will risk their lives to save them! (As would I!) And also the way people with no souls just don't care about animals! It's a story about what makes me love animals way more than humans!! And as always, Paul Walker is awesome in this movie, and an avid animal lover like me as well.

      Chick Flick

      This movie was given to me so I had to watch it. I don't watch dog movies, but I must say this film really hit me especially at the end. I got the idea it was a chick flick and I'm sure many have cried at the end of this film, but I didn't. The scenery in the movie was beautiful and the dogs were really great too. I liked seeing how the dogs engaged those sea gulls, but the end was definatly my favorite scene. My first assumption of this film was pretty low. I thought the guys at the beginning were unmature college guys doing crazy stuff, but I gradually saw the humor in it and it made for a great movie. The actors had perfect roles and the girl was hot too. I'd recomend the movie to anyone especially family's.

      Two of My Favorite Things

      This movie featured two of my favorite things - Paul Walker and Siberian Huskies. Your typical feel-good Disney movie with a predictable plot. I absolutely recommend it for family movie night or when you're just missing Paul Walker. I was disappointed to see that the Blu-ray case was slightly damaged upon opening, so I gave the product four stars instead of five.

      I went in not expecting much from this Disney live action film - the art and concept felt like it was just going to be a SNOW DOGS retread. But instead I found a very compelling, beautifully shot adenture in the tundra. A great family film that all ages can enjoy!

      Great story with beautiful scenery and wonderful acting not only by Paul Walker but those eight incredible dogs that survived the harsh Antarctica and are finally rescued by a guide who would not give up. Heartwarming for all ages.

      Everybody knows Paul Walker for fast and the furious but I truly love this inspirational tale of these beautifully charismatic snow dogs. They're so much smarter than we give them credit for. Great great movie!
