the Film leaves a pleasant impression. Only after seeing the poster I realized the film is worth: Paul Walker with a pack of dogs that clearly look with him one the background.

There is drama, adventure and even a small share of Comedy, which adds more interest... the film Team knows where you need to insert drama, and where would abstain, and it just proves their professional.

The game is Paul Walker Jason Biggs pleased. The others played a "C grade", so because their roles are slightly dramatic. Also there is a little tightness: it was clearly expressed with the moment of "departure" when Jerry went to the concert "Doc". More I have over the film not found it.

"eight" — this blend of fine family adventure film. Where from the team working on the movie, created all conditions for comfortable viewing. Most Amateur fighters, fantasy, horror and so on, the film is unlikely to have a good choice. But, there are people who prefer completely opposite genres.

Conclusion: this film — a Paradise for lovers of drama and adventurous.

Dog lovers will be in love it! (Clarified experimentally). First they enthusiastically obrydaeshsya from tenderness at the dog (dogs and really gorgeous!), and then as a rapidly — over the unfortunate fate. And as I belong to the enormous army of dog lovers, then I watched this movie completely unbiased.

In principle, a pretty good movie for one-time viewing. Beautiful picture, nice scenery, decent music — all as expected. Dogs, like I have said, simply elegant — and want even non-dog people to move in frame squeeze them. the Superstars of Hollywood in this film — at least I didn't recognize any of played there actors. But in General and whole, all they did not their roles. Although dogs from nobody beat — here it didn't think I'd say that. Was very touching scenes — even those callous people like me. Huge respect for the trainers!

There are, of course, and cons. The plot is predictable from to. On the stage of the corpse of a seal (probably, it was still a seal, but wildlife — not my horse) rushes to the dog-cub, I almost left a stutterer. Not know look at these seals, but the they were like some amphibians lizards.

The scene of incursions into database of Italians was very good. nice. *gg* as well as what our friends, the Americans did not forgotten to invade and to the Russian base (for some reason at which was written of the Soviet Union, but has been the Russian), though there was invaded by hungry dogs. Still very funny it was to see how to the minus 31 Americans hanging around in Antarctica baseball caps, shorts and unbuttoned jackets.

Total, it turned out pretty decent movie — good, touching, but tears do not break through. Recommend to watch in that would any was not will, but if you would think about time spent not will regret.

Never heard about this movie earlier, for some reason, these movies always pass by most viewers, although it is very unfortunate. It is these films we are lacking. To still I was overwhelmed with emotions from just the scanned picture... have the credits, and I still worried about the dogs, as they are there in cold Antarctica.

Paul Walker, it was amazing to see him in this picture, after the "fast and Furious". Not say that he played well... it is very inexpressive, he was on the entire film. And maybe just because in the film, the attention was not for people and dogs, looking in his eyes which it is simply impossible to remain indifferent. On the entire film has a small feeling that there is a little bit unfinished human feelings that here we want to show one thing, but can't to Express human emotions. However, in the end is just an explosion of emotions and begin to think, and maybe this was the Director's idea that has made you to be kept on during movies and gives you the feelings the last few minutes of the film?

It is very difficult to answer on this question. But this film is recommended for viewing. If you like a movie where the first, the role of the withdrawn animal, and then people, — this picture is for You!
