Luke Perry is great in his bull riding stunt scenes that makes him look real for his real-life Lane Frost role.

A great film about the legendary bull rider "Lane Frost."
Love it still.

I am not sure how real this story may be, but I know that after his injuries it was insane to keep competing. It isn't a great story and it won't age well but it is entertaining enough.

This is bar none, the best Cowboy movie I have ever seen. It has a wonderful cast that do terrific at giving you a great glimpse into the real life story of a rodeo champion from his very early humble beginnings to him reaching all the goals he aspired to be.

If you like a good story without all the mess that a lot, these days fill with a gratuitous amount of violence and destruction, this is the movie for you.

He is sorely lost still today.

Another of my top 5 to pull out and watch on a day I feel like being inspired.

As many biopics that get made every year there are relatively few that capture the time and place as well as 8S did. You'd think there would be more but there just aren't that many directors who pay as much attention to detail as Avidsen did at the helm. As far as casting goes I can understand Luke Perry, as the 90210 popularity was still very high in 1994. Aside from that he's a decent and underrated actor. Not everyone can step into the shoes of real people and perform credibly. He had a good supporting cast and director.

if you know the story ..its a fair depiction of late 80's bull riding..the tragedy..the ups and downs, highs and lows of good ol boys rodeoing back before the money that is there today..even the best were barely making it ..did it for the love of it..not the money and fame...worth the watch..but first watch bull riding today either on television or in person....compare and understand....

A great movie. The story of Frost and how he lived sends a message out to anyone who has ever known fame. Among the best of its kind.

Great movie! I love to watch the intensity of the pressure to stay on the biggest strongest animal known as the bull... To stay on the raging bull for 8 seconds takes the longest to conquer in a lifetime... To watch them do that takes alot of guts... More power to the bull riders....

Oh so good. Very sad another based on a true story, actually the life of a real bull rider, and the fact that Luke Perry was casted made it all better he is a good actor and he made you beleive he was the part. Get your tissues out for this one.

It's not as much about bull riding as it was about the struggles and the accomplishments of Lane. Wonderful casting.
