Movie Review by Zara
March 13th, 2007

OK, so I'm a sap

I really liked this movie. Not so much for the scenes with the humans in it, although I will never deny that it's a hell of a lot of fun looking into Paul Walker's crystal blue eyes. I liked this movie because it contains some of the most gorgeous cinematography when the dogs are the center of their focus.

Based on a real life story that didn't have the handsome Walker at its helm but instead a group of Japanese scientists (slightly eyes don't sell as well according to Disney) about a group of sled dogs who get left behind in Antarctica after a big storm hits, if you're an animal lover at all, this movie will touch you.

How anyone could look into the eyes of a Huskie and not be moved is beyond me. The reason why Huskies are so popular is because those eyes of theirs don't look like dog eyes. They look round and blue, sort of like Walker's. It's hard to turn away from a pair of eyes that remind you of something human.

I cried. I love dogs and I hate to see any die. It's heartwarming to see some survive, but it's also rough to watch when you know that there are going to be some lives lost.

I own a gorgeous, blue-eyed husky myself. So of course we have to see any husky movie that comes out and this was no exception. They did very well remaining true to a huskies nature. The only thing that surprised me is that huskies "talk" alot rather than bark, and they had the dogs barking to communicate quite a bit. Not that they don't bark sometimes, but one of the charms of huskies is their "talking" so I was kind of disappointed that they didn't show that.
