The career of premature actor Paul Walker is closely associated with the image of Brian O’Connor – the main character of the famous racing and action film series Fast & Furious.

However, one of the other memorable films in Paul’s career is Eight Below – a work in which he is the owner of eight sled dogs in Antarctica.

Movie trailer `Eight Below`

The war against nature

The film is set in 1993 in Antarctica, where Jerry Shepard (played by Paul Walker) is a guide for expeditions and research teams.

One day, Dr. Davis McClarren (Bruce Greenwood) arrived in Antarctica and asked for Jerry and the dog team’s help to reach Mount Melbourne and find a strange meteorite.

`Eight Below`, the movie starring Paul Walker, brought tears to many audiences in 2006.

In the end, Dr. Davis found what he wanted, but he almost died in an accident and was only lucky to survive thanks to Jerry’s improvisation skills and the support of eight dogs.

He was promised that immediately after taking the group to the hospital, female pilot Katie (Moon Bloodgood) would return to pick up eight dogs stuck in the snow.

On the movie poster, Eight Below is introduced as `the most incredible story of friendship, survival and adventure ever told`.

The film’s content is based on true events of a Japanese expedition in Antarctica in 1958 and was adapted by American filmmakers.

The close relationship between Jerry and the dogs was introduced by director Frank Marshall from the first footage.

Smart dogs in the movie.

On the journey to Melbourne Mountain, the dogs under the direction of Jerry and led by Maya had to cross not only the cold snow but also layers of ice that could break at any time.

Interest in the dogs gradually turned into admiration when they were left alone in Antarctica without food.

With their intelligence thanks to being trained to pull sleds in difficult weather, the dogs quickly find ways to find food by hunting seagulls, penguins or seals… Even when being snatched by leopards.

But to make the movie more emotional and `a story of great friendship`, `friend` Jerry cannot be missing.

Jerry tried every way to find a plane or some other means of transport that could take him back to the research station as soon as possible even though a long time had passed and the dogs might have been overcome by nature.

Perhaps those who raise and love dogs understand Jerry’s feeling when dogs are considered a family member and an indispensable part of life.

The most memorable scene in the movie is when Jerry returns to the old place and finds the dogs still waiting for him because he `promised he would come back`.

The moment Jerry reunited with the dogs, perhaps not only he cried, but many viewers also shed tears after witnessing this emotional story.
