Eight Below DVD Review

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.

Eight Below - Kleenex Anyone?

Make sure you've got a good supply of tissue when going to see Eight Below. While for the most part it is very uplifting and inspiring, there are quite a few moments where you're going to shed some tears - especially for those of you with pets. It's hard not to get emotional over the bond between man and his best friends.

Eight Below - DVD Features

Find out more about the filming of Eight Below from both director Frank Marshall and star Paul Walker by tuning into the audio commentary on the disc. You can also learn a lot about the training of sled dogs with the featurette, Running With The Dogs.

Eight Below - Bottom Line

Usually when you get a movie that's wholesome, inspiring and emotional, it's something that your mom forces you to watch. But, with Eight Below you get all those warm, fuzzy qualities plus some perilous adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat. There's definitely something for everyone in this movie. Oh and guys, you will get huge bonus points for taking your GF to see this flick!
