Adventures and animals on spectacular outdoor locations

The movie deals with an adventurer (Paul Walker) along with a scientist (Bruce Greenwood) looking for meteor stones . Under the unfortunate circumstances they must leave their pack of wolf-dogs behind on a frozen landscape in the Antarctic . The film concerns on the Huskies' subsequent fight for survival . This is an epic saga of survival against the wilderness of the Antarctic . The first part of the movie is developed between Paul Walker and his companion Bruce Greenwood and the second part the dogs must face the harsh ice and struggle to stay alive in the great white south .

It's a simplistic and agreeable fare with heroes but no villains . This is a politically correct and wholesome family story compliments of Walt Disney or Touchstone studios . Kids will love it and there are plenty of Huskies to achieve required factor . Besides , the comic relief at charge of Jason Biggs . Beautiful scenery filmed on mesmerizing location by cameraman Don Burgess (Spiderman , Terminator 3) , he's Robert Zemeckis's usual cinematographer . Spectacular and sensational musical score by Mark Isham . The motion picture was well realized by Frank Marshall (Congo , Arachnophobia) who also directed another survival drama titled ¨Alive¨. The movie is a remake to ¨Antarctic¨ (Koreyoshi Karahara) a Japan film with Ken Takakura and Vangelis soundtrack . Rating : Better than average . Fun for the entire family .

A Tale of Friendship, Loyalty and Survival

In Antarctic, after an expedition with Dr. Davis McClaren (Bruce Greenwood),the sled dogs trainer Jerry Shepherd (Paul Walker) has to leave the polar base with his colleagues due to the proximity of a heavy snow storm. He ties his dogs to be rescued after, but the mission is called-off and the dogs are left alone at their own fortune. For six months, Jerry tries to find a sponsor for a rescue mission while his dogs fight for survival.

I was really touched with this typical Walt Disney movie. I was in a flight and my eyes were completely wet along many scenes, but I was not ashamed, since I saw other passenger in the same situation also trying to disguise. This tale of friendship, loyalty and survival is amazingly beautiful, and I am still impressed with the cinematography and scenes with the dogs fighting for surviving in an absolutely aggressive environment. The very realistic struggle between the dogs and one wild animal is simply amazing. This is an entertainment highly recommended to the whole family and with an adorable message in the end. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Resgate Abaixo de Zero" ("Rescue Below Zero")

Huskies on the go

In a mission to find rare meteorite from the planet mercury in Antarctica. Jerry Shepard (Paul Walker) who is a guide at the research base has to leave his Huskies behind as treacherous winter weather approaches.

Back at home, Shepard is guilt ridden about leaving his dogs and is determined in rescuing the dogs.

However the main part of the film is the dogs story. The dogs break free of their chains except for Old Jack who is too old and dies at the base camp.

The rest of the dogs hunt seals, birds and penguins to survive. One of the dogs gets fatally injured while looking at the southern lights one night, another is attacked and injured by a seal when they find whale meat. It may be too late for her unless she is rescued in time.

The Huskies are the real stars of the movie, the way they act on screen and inject personality is well done. The icy landscape is breathtaking the humans in many ways take back seat.

The film is inspired by a true Japanese story. The late Paul Walker shows great love for the dogs and its nice to know that he will not just be remembered for the Fast and Furious films. Jason Biggs provides comic relief.
