One of the best movies of all time. If you love rodeo, you'll love this movie.
This is my all time favorite movie
A brilliant movie and the disparity between the audience and critics is another fine example of critics having no knowledge over the subject but still being so f’ing stuck up as to write a poor review for an exceptional biopic
Awesome movie. Almost made me cry.
Amazing movie of the life of the late great lane frost.
31% my ass, this show is fantastic!
Luke Perry stars in this biography of the late Lane Frost a champion bull rider who in 1987 won a rodeo world championship at the tender age of 21. In Eight Seconds the title refers to the minimum amount of time a rider must stay on a bull in competition Lane Frost is a young man from Oklahoma who learns to ride hoping to win the approval of his emotionally distant father. As Lane works his way up the rodeo circuit with his best friend Tuff Hedeman (Stephen Baldwin) he meets Kelly Kyle (Cynthia Geary) a pretty barrel-race rider with whom he falls in love. Lane and Kelly marry but Lane stubbornly refuses any help from Kelly's wealthy parents forcing the young couple to live a hand-to-mouth existence and while Lane's dedication to rodeo and its fans earns him a devoted following it also keeps him away from Kelly and threatens to sink their relationship. Lane's hard work pays off when he wins the 1987 world championship but the danger of the sport catches up with him two years later when he dies as a result of an accident during competition.
The true story of bull rider Lane Frost; great flick.
There's a beautiful true story at the heart of 8 Seconds, and the performances are great, but it's never enough to overcome its cliched script and poor pacing.
A touching and bittersweet story with a surprisingly good Luke Perry performance.
