Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: Eight Below is the Brian's Song of dog movies: schmaltzy, feel-goody, inspired-by-a-true-story-y. It's formulaic and frequently over the top, 30 minutes too long and altogether too slow.
- Allison Benedikt, Chicago Tribune, Friday, February 17, 2006
Rotten: Basically, what we have here is a stranded-animal movie in which the stranded animals are forced to split screen time with a mopey human character and his annoying, redundant friends.
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, February 17, 2006
Fresh: The film milks every opportunity to yank the heartstrings, but despite the calculation in its soul, Eight Below still manages to be a moving story about -- what else? -- the power of love.
