Critic Reviews for Eight Below
Live-action animal adventures have always been a Disney specialty, and this one has a pretty compelling plot.
It's heartwarming, occasionally exciting, and some of the cinematography is exemplary.
Eight Below runs two hours and would have benefited from losing 30 minutes of that -- all of it from Jerry's (Paul Walker) protracted quest. The other human actors are simply types.
It's too clichéd, it's too rote, and honestly I think you have to care a little bit more about the individual dogs to believe that these people would care so much.
The plot's slavish schmaltz proves as oppressive as the harsh winter that descends upon the dogs.
Audience Reviews for Eight Below
If only those actors could act, we'd have ourselves a gold winner.
Eight below is an emotional and good movie. The problem is that they say it was based on a true story, when in reality the dogs were lost they have no idea what happened to the dogs. It was depressing at times but could also be kind and good hearted. Its worth a watch but only once or twice.
Paul Walker makes this movie even better than it should have been! I did not expect this movie to be as good as it was, but it was fantastic. Paul Walker pulls off an amazing performance here, and the story is breathtaking.
