I really had no desire to see Eight Below, but my kids wanted to see it so I brought it home (thank you, Blockbuster movie pass) and watched it. The trailers were typical Disney - anthropomorphic animals, handsome heroes...you know the drill. It looked too much like their many other animated or live-action films to really spark my interest.

I'd like to say that this film managed to prove my preconceptions all wrong....but it didn't. It wasn't a bad film, it just didn't have a whole lot of thought-provoking material. I admit that the dogs were great and displayed as much emotion as the human actors (through very many edits, no doubt). And though the outcome was predictable, the plight of our heroes trapped in an Antarctic blizzard was still suspenseful (the dogs' trials were a bit more graphic and realistic than your average Disney film).

This is a good film for family viewing, but (as you can see form the length of this post) it won't challenge you.
