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.
- Connie Ogle, Miami Herald, Friday, February 17, 2006
Stating that you should only watch this film for the dogs seems like quite obvious advice but to put up with the awful script, terrible acting and Jason 'Kill me now' Biggs, you have to be a big fan of our canine friends. Three stars purely for the Huskies.
