This was an enjoyable film. Paul Walker plays Jerry, a travel guide in Antarctica and has 8 huskies who are good at dogsledding, and part of his family (as much as family for a single guy who spends 6 months in Antarctica). Bruce Greenwood plays a scientist looking for Mercury meteorite, and finds himself in Antarctica looking for it. With the help of Jerry and the 8 huskies, they embark on a journey filled with wonderful shots of a frozen continent, and some hazards that require leaving the huskies behind to evacuate from the coming winter storms. Jerry is crushed by not being able to make it back to go get the huskies, and struggles to find a way back, even just to see how the huskies fared in one of the most brutal winters in the past quarter of a century (film is set in 1993). This films isn't a film for kids who may problems with the food chain when it comes to survival by the huskies. But the huskies are really easy to love and root for as they fight for survival from not only the climate, but also for substenance. I give it 3 stars, or a grade of B. My reaction to the ending of the film: I had tears welling up, and it was hard to hold them back, so I gave up and just them go. I'm a softie for animal films, I guess.
