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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

A cut way above. A nearly perfect family movie.

The dogs take the biscuit in Eight Below, an enthralling fact-based tale of man's best friend struggling to survive a harsh Antarctic winter.

An example of a formula picture executed with the right mixture of professionalism and heart.

It gets a bit sappy towards the end as earnest movies often tend to do, but the trip is worth it, creating a fine piece of wilderness adventure, a genre that has languished in recent years.

Could this be the beginning of a new era of excellence for Disney? We'll see. It's definitely a great start.

You can't teach an old dog new tricks, but where Hollywood movies are concerned, sometimes those old tricks are still pretty darn impressive.
