Eight Below Reviews

Empire Magazine Australasia

The Alaskan Huskies of Eight Below are both better-looking and better performers than their human counterparts, and their vigilant scenes of solo survival on an Antarctic outpost make for the highlight of this otherwise predictable rescue mission.

Kids will be enraptured (and a tad frightened) and all but the stoniest-hearted adults will join them for a bit of a cry.

Live-action animal adventures have always been a Disney specialty, and this one has a pretty compelling plot.

At first sight a fun but slightly sappy man-and-his-dogs story, Eight Below quickly evolves into a well-crafted wilderness adventure reminiscent of Disney's heyday.

Cinema Crazed

It's heartbreaking, it's exciting, it's engrossing, it's a home run for Disney, and it's finally a good performance for Paul Walker.

It's the canine players who carry the movie and will capture the hearts of viewers young and old.

The film is padded out to a full two hours, which may not be quite as long as the dogs have to wait for their rescue, but it does feel like it.

Movie Metropolis

The human interaction is just a little too precious and the digression away from the dogs and the main story is just too long for it to feel like anything but a major detour.

It's heartwarming, occasionally exciting, and some of the cinematography is exemplary.

The film looks handsome, the photography is grand, and the dogs do their part admirably. Now, if it weren't for those pesky humans....

There are times when resisting the Disney line just isn't worth the effort.

After two hours in Walker's slack-jawed company, you feel like you've just gone through the Antarctic winter yourself.

Walker and co. might get a healthy burst of screentime in the middle, but its the team of dogs who steal the show.

The dogs are adorable and the scenery is impressive, but this is poorly written, badly paced and at least 30 minutes too long.

The biggest accomplishment of all is keeping these wonderful, loveable sled dogs inhuman; they are dogs. And we love dogs.

Shadows on the Wall

It's entertaining and sweet, and rather annoyingly fake.

April 6, 2006

Now, this is a kids' movie, first and foremost, so my high rating is based on the film's core demographic and not geared to snobby, Milk-Dud encrusted cinephiles who scoff at a little Mark Isham -engineered heart tugging.

Perhaps you have to be a dog owner to be reduced to the blubbering mess that I found myself in by the end of Disney's Eight Below.
