Trivia Based on a Japanese expedition to the South Pole inin which the party was faced with extreme weather conditions. Goofs At the beginning of the movie when it is January it is pitch black out for all the night scenes.
That close to the South Pole the sun would be above the horizon for at least twenty-three hours per day, and the sky would still be quite bright for the other hour. Also, just before the dogs are rescued, July time frame shadows are seen indicating that the sun is pretty much directly overhead. During this time of year, the sun is only above Eight below ending horizon for about an hour per day, and would never be anywhere near that high in the sky.

Top review. It's about the dogs. The acting in this movie is weak.
Now that I got that out of the way, let me tell you why this film is worth watching: the outdoor photography and the dogs. This movie contains some of the most impressive outdoor cinematography that one can hope or expect to see in a Hollywood movie. This movie shows the awesome and forbidding beauty of icebergs, ice flows and glacier-covered mountains. Compared to these magnificent edifices of nature, man is rendered almost utterly inificant, a mere Eight below ending in a wilderness of ice that is almost endless. Indeed, the scenery is spectacular.
That's one interesting part of the movie. But the main part of the movie are the dogs - eight of them.
This movie offers a wonderful story about eight brave and stalwart creatures that are determined to survive in the polar wilderness. Having been abandoned by their owner, the dogs must fend for themselves, and they do so, by staying together, working as a team, looking out for each other and caring for each other.
They set an example for us humans to follow. That's why this is a movie that's not about us, but about those wonderful dogs. FAQ 1.
