Eight Below (2006) is the most amazing story of courage, survival, friendship and adventure ever told. This is the best film of Paul Walker not only that Paul Walker gives a powerful performance, but the sled dogs gives the most powerful performance on screen ever. I just finished recently watching this film and it was amazing awesome powerful story. Watching this movie I was keep crying for 2.hrs because I love dog's so much. I am an animal lover and I love dogs all kind to death and when the group left those dogs behind in Antarctica in chains I was crying, this movie was really sad. I don't blame Paul Walker's character or anyone, but that was mean leaving those beautiful dogs behind. They were a family and this film is written so decent, even the characters were well written. This movie is very sad and tragic, but it also does have a little humor in it, thanks goes to Walt Disney pictures that it does have a happy ending.
Plot: In the Antarctic, after an expedition with Dr. Davis McClaren, the sled dog trainer Jerry Shepherd has to leave the polar base with his colleagues due to the proximity of a heavy snow storm. He ties his dogs to be rescued after, but the mission is called-off and the dogs are left alone at their own fortune. For six months, Jerry tries to find a sponsor for a rescue mission while his dogs fight for survival.
In this movie the real portraying is actually a heroism! This dogs in this movie are actually the real heroes of this film alongside Paul Walker!
Again this movie was really sad, it was beautiful how dogs saved Dr. Davis McClaren from the ice storm and they were left alone. In the movie no one I mean no one gave a damn about those dogs that were left behind and they were abandoned, except Paul Walker who did everything in his power that he will save his beloved dogs. Paul Walker even showed LOVE in this movie! Every else he turned too, to find a sponsor help him rescue the dogs he landed in a dead end! This movie is very beautiful and Paul Walker with his sled dogs gives a powerful performance. I love that Paul saved 6 dogs and not 5, it took almost a year for those dogs in a cold to be saved. Beside Paul Walker we also have a beautiful cast such as: Bruce Greenwood from Nowhere Man and Passenger 57, Moon Bloodgood from Terminator: Salvation (2009) and Jason Biggs from American Pie!
I want to say that Bruce Greenwood was amazing he was way better than he was in Passenger 57, I love the chemistry between him and the dogs, sled dogs saves him and than he helps to save the dogs which he does on the end. Moon Bloodgood was fantastic in this movie she acted perfectly and she was the main reason in the film for a person that she didn't gave up! Jason Biggs was excellent in his role I know we all know him as Jim Levenstein from American Pie , I still have to re watch his other movie Loser but still he gave a good performance from him self. The more courage and heart in this movie have the sled dogs and Paul Walker he never gave up I love him to death!
I love this movie to death, I love that this movie is a rescue mission I love rescue mission movies. This movie is not boring or over long, honestly, even over hyped and overpaid actor Tom Cruise couldn't even come near Paul Walker's character, he wouldn't even act that brilliant that Paul Walker did! I don't agree with critics and haters about this movie that the acting is weak and so on. To critics and haters you are stupid!
R.I.P. - Paul Walker (1973 - 2013) I really miss you and I wish you could do more movies, I am your biggest fan and I love you to death!
Overall: This movie get's 10 out of 10 it is one of the best Paul walker movies! I love all 8 sled dogs portrayed in this movie they are all beautiful!
