Paul Walker and Jason Biggs brave the cold, harsh climate of Antarctica in the latest flick from Disney, Eight Below. Find out if this action-adventure flick is worth checking out with Kidzworld's review.

Eight Below - A Tough Decision

Paul plays Jerry Shepard, a guide in Antarctica who is sent out for one last trip of the season with a geologist looking for a meteorite. During their trip, the scientist (played by Bruce Greenwood) breaks his leg and falls through the ice. Jerry and his team of sled dogs rush him back to base camp and the plan to get him to a hospital is set into action - the only problem is, Jerry's dogs must be left behind!

Eight Below - Sometimes You Have to Take Risks...

Despite suffering from frostbite and an early winter storm that is forcing everyone out of Antarctica, Jerry tries everything in his power to get back to his dogs. But, once winter has settled over the vast continent, no human can venture into the icy region. Jerry must come to terms with the fact that his beloved dogs are probably dead, but he always holds out hope that they have somehow managed to survive. Meanwhile, the viewer is taken back to the frozen terrain to join those brave Huskies and Malamutes on their own tough journey.

    It depends on the wealth of the school, the culture of the school, etc., I went to three different middle schools. One wasn't so wealthy, so a lot of them had converse, regular jeans, and over-used Aeropostale and Abercombie shirts. The second one, was a bit more wealthy, but they were a bit redneck. The popular girls and guy wore camo most of the time, along with the girls' hair up and jeans up to their belly buttons (ew). The last one was very wealthy. Some of the parents had gone to the best colleges in the region, and the kids wore anything from Forever 21 to very expensive brands.
