  • A B movie but not by design?
    Hey, the stunts are very well done, but nobody is going to believe Luke Perry is a bull-rider as he is just too weak and puny?
    The two main actors are just very bad and unbelievable as is the script in a lot of places. Cynthia Geary doesn't look like she could ride a golf cart without falling off,m let alone a quarter horse?
    The actual best actor in this movie is Steven Baldwin, the character actor,
    best friend of Lane Frost. The director should have "Cowboy-ed up".
    At least we see that Lane Frost died doing what he loved.
    I've lived in a Rodeo town most of my life:
    the real cowboys are both tough and strong....more info
  • Finally there will be and is another Lane Frost forever and ever, YAHOO! :)
    I loved this video 8 SECONDS! This video is about a man named Lane Frost {Luke Perry -- "Beverly Hills: 90210" & Normal Life} who was born to ride. He rode a bucking bull. An awsome soundtrack by top country and western artists including Vince Gill & Reba McEntire, was add to the intensity of this action-packed story of a man who was born to ride. ...This is a good video and I loved it? This is a great real rodeo movie of a rodeo legend named Lane Frost.

    With a new focus on the future of the sport and a rich history to form a solid base those heading to Las Vegas have every reason to feel optimistic about the 49th Wrangler NFR in 2007! Two things you wont want to miss 49th Wrangler NFR 2007 and your own copy to enjoy for years to come FOREVER, AS If you enjoy the traditions of the old west, that turned a dare between ranch hands so many years ago into a highly entertaining spectator sport....this DVD of "wrangler NFR 2007(2007 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo)5pk" is for you to own FOREVER! Karl is taking the helm at a time when the PRCA has been forced by circumstances to take a close look at their organization and the future of rodeo and the results have been a new positive look at the future. Rodeo like all sports continues to produce extremely talented athletes and the stock contractors are raising bucking horses and bulls from breeding programs that just continue to produce top quality buckers. Word around the rodeo circuit is that this is set to be one of the best events in the history of the PRCA. Several exciting events have happened within the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association since the NFR. All good! There is a new man at the helm of the association, Karl Stressman. Karl is certainly not new to the sport of rodeo and to what it takes to put on a top-notch event.

    I'll live forever everyday in 2007 and 2009, and thank goodness there'll be another 2007 and 2009 someday again, YAHOO, I get to live forever in 2007 and 2009, which means thank goodness I pick my top best two favorites years to live with and repeat forever and ever for years and years to come, as there'll be another 2007 and 2009 again someday forever, YAHOO :) My real top best favorite years I only like that will be around forever are 2007 and 2009, as I really know that one day there'll be another 2007 and another 2009, as thank goodness they'll be here again, as 2007 and 2009 are my top best two favorite years to live with and repeat forever, and thank goodness there'll be another 2007 and 2009 someday, it'll be back and I know it will be, YAHOO :) Nice great and fast quick hands, as I really love calf roping and this is my favorite event forever at the NFR, and this event ROCKS IN 2007 AT THE NFR AND 2009! YEHAA, YAHOO, FOREVER 2007 NFR AND 2009 :) YAHOO :) CALF ROPING ROCKS FOREVER OF 2007 NFR AND 2009, YEEHAA, YAHOO :) 2007 will be my favorite to be copying, repeating and doing forever and I'm definitely favoriting this one, because that ONE ROCKS FOREVER OF 2007 NFR AND 2009, YEEHAA, YAHOO :)

W. Coop is also another one of my favorite rodeo movies as my real favorite western movies to watch are "Apaloosa" starring Ed Harris, "8 Seconds" starring Luke Perry, and "J. W. Coop" starring Cliff Robertson, and those are the only real three western and rodeo cowboy movies that you should only watch and they'd be probably the only three western rodeo and cowboy movies for you ever to watch, as if you say that if you like "Apaloosa" starring Ed Harris, "8 Seconds" starring Luke Perry, and "J. W. Coop" starring Cliff Robertson, then those are for you, forever and ever, as they're your own copies to enjoy for years to come forever as those three movies will really come to life, they really will be yours if you want to enjoy them.

  • The best true story of the rodeo life
    This is one of the best movies that I've ever seen. It not only has great rodeo scenes but also great music. It is the story of one of the greatest rodeo cowboys of all time....more info
  • Legend before his time
    I recommend this movie for anybody into bullriding, rodeo, or into a good story about a good ol boy with a big heart that left this earth way before his time....more info
  • Does it mean anything that I watch it at least twice a month
    Lane Frost, Tuff Hedeman, Cody Lambert, and Kelly Frost are the most courageous people I have ever heard of. I give much respect to all people involved in creating this movie. The pain it must of caused the people who knew Lane in helping to recreate this. If you haven't seen 8 Seconds yet what are you waiting for? Its definitly a heart breaker. Be prepared to cry. Truely an inspiring, heart-touching and phenominal movie. Definitly 5 stars, if I could I would rate it with infinite stars, they are well deserved....more info
  • Awesome Movie
    This is a great movie that helps shed a little light onto the life of a great bullrider. Some details may have been left out, and some points may have been stretched, but all in all an amazing movie. I know that as a cowgirl it showed a glimpse into the rodeo world that many have never seen. I'm glad that so many people got to see that bullriding and rodeo life is not glamorous, or pretty but that it takes a lot of work to get where we are. I hope that many people do watch it and gain a new respect for a great man that was taking from this earth before his time was up. I love this movie and I think you will too!...more info

  • The Greatest Movie!
    This movie is a great way to show respect for Lane Frost. The Music from the movie is all very good. The Lane's Theme is the best peice of music I have ever heard. This is a very sad movie and if it doesn't make you cry there is no way you payed attention it is sad but the truth to some extent. There are some parts that are exagerated as in most movies. Buy this movie it is excellent!...more info
  • Biopic Without Much Biography, But Exciting Entertainment
    After being directed by Amazon's recommendation to "8 Seconds," and reading the reviews, I thought that this would be an enjoyable film and purchased it. I am not a big rodeo fan, but I do enjoy them once in a while; and I have been friends with several bull riders. While I enjoyed the film, I cannot say that it really helped me to know more about Lane Frost (portrayed by Luke Perry), his life, career, his relationships with other performers, or his marriage. Indeed, after watching the film, I found myself looking up more information about Lane Frost on the internet to help me make more sense out of the movie.

    What I missed most in the film was the sense of Lane's apparent true love for both his wife and for bull riding. They are essentially implied; that is, the viewer must assume them or "look between the lines." This may, to a degree, be caused by the director's inability to do so without changing the rating of the film; (but really is something that could have been done without changing the rating if they wanted to do so). Also, several of the best songs, in my opinion, were wasted on the credits rather than integrated into the film. If you are a big fan of bull riding or extreme sports, I am sure you will enjoy "8 Seconds," but if you are looking for a good biopic, this film falls flat.

    On the other hand, I found the cinematography to be outstanding, and while both Luke Perry and Cynthia Geary (who plays Kellie Frost, Lane's wife) give believable performances, the "chemistry" between them was just not there, as far as I am concerned. Moreover, I feel that the pace of the film was too fast regarding key events and themes, preferring to spend more "film" time on the actual "bull riding." I do not think that "8 Seconds" has too many bull riding scenes--indeed I think it would have helped to have had more scenes of Lane's "bad" rides--but rather that "8 Seconds" needs more depth to the other scenes. I guess, in the final analysis, what I am saying is that the film was edited to be only 105 minutes, when it should have been longer. Hence, I feel, in the end, that "8 Seconds" is a good movie, but not quite as good as other reviewers have rated it.

    Please Note: If this review was not helpful to you, I would appreciate learning the reason(s) so I can improve my reviews. My goal is to provide help to potential buyers, not get into any arguments. So, if you only disagree with my opinion, could you please say so in the comments and not indicate that the review was not helpful. Thanks....more info
  • Not an intellectual fest, but so what
    Unlike Terminal Bliss and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, this film shows that Perry really can act beyond the teenage movies he almost got walled into.

    While light at times, the movie also has it's dark portions. Even though I did not (like many young girls who grew up drooling over him)like the "extra rough" edges in Frost's life upon first seeing the movie, I now realize this was an integeral part of Frost's short life. The fact that it was not an enormous box office sucess only means that the Silver screen was also not ready to acknowllege his maturation as an actor.

    No fan of country music, I actually found myself humming many of the songs in the movie, and was impressed to learn that Perry actually did his own line dancing during the wedding scene. I am a native Texan, and I have yet to capture the patience and motivation needed for such lessons (let alone the actual dancing)This scenealone should prove that Perry has real star power....more info

  • Once in a while
    Once in a while a movie will come along that will strike a chord and touch the souls of even the hardest hearted viewers. "8 Seconds" is such a movie. It is a warts and all biopic of Lane Frost, a world champion cowboy who was tragically killed by a bull just a few months prior to his 26th birthday. Although it wasn't a box office hit and is slammed by most critics (who don't speak for the majority anyway) this film is a success. It doesn't canonise Frost, instead it portrays him the way he undoubtedly was - as a decent but flawed human being, who like the rest of us, wasn't perfect but had a good personality and a good heart. And be prepared to reach for the Kleenex during the closing moments and final credits of the film. You'll need them!...more info

  • Cowboy Up!
    I never saw this in the theaters and never really thought I would watch it on DVD since the two main stars are Luke Perry and Stephen Baldwin. But a few years ago I was fiending for some country type movies and decided to give this one a chance. When the movie was over and the credits were rolling I was pretty much in shock of how good the movie was... especially since it was a true story.

    Luke Perry plays Lane Frost in this true tale of a champion. Lane begins riding bulls at a young age (actually sheep at that young of an age) and as he gets older, just continues what he loves to do and makes it his profession. Living the dream. That right there is just amazing to me, because there are very few out there who are doing exactly what they want to do. But not only is he living the dream, but he's really good at it. Also he has 2 really good friends who travel with him and also compete with him. One of the friends, Tuff, is played by Stephen Baldwin. Baldwin isn't too bad in this role, but I still think they could've picked a bum off the road and he would've been better. And then Lane, during one of the meets, comes across his future wife Kellie, played by the ever so boring Cynthia Geary.

    8 Seconds has some great moments in it and some really funny moments also. I cracked up when Lane brings a really bad trailer home for Kellie... as an actual house for her. She's thinking it's a joke, and he really thought she'd be ok with it. Well... maybe it's funny to me since I know people like that back in Georgia... lol. There are also some really slow parts to and it's mainly cause of some of the acting. Sometimes you'd think you should be watching a romantic part or a good story telling part, and Cynthia or Stephen would just ruin it cause there acting is crap.

    When the credits were running, I sat there and thought to myself, "Man this guy had a crazy good life even if it was ended to soon."Sure he wasn't perfect. He had major daddy issues, he cheated some, and he was barely home (cause he was out making the money). That doesn't hurt the fact though that he tried really hard to make everyone happy. Maybe to hard for his dad. But he was always there for his fans and a really good role model for the kids. And he tried very hard to give everything he could to Kellie (even though he wasn't always faithful). And you really can't help but smile at the end while they show real pictures and clips of Lane. He was always smiling and you could see how much fun he was always having.

    Man this movie really made me miss home. I gotta find me a rodeo to go to sometime here in Vegas.

    In the end I would say this movie might feel like a Hallmark movie, but it was a lot of fun at some points. Definitely give it a try.


    P.S. - I met Stephen Baldwin once back in 1999. I went to a Wal-Mart back in Tucson one night for some super glue and was walking to the check out counters when I saw a guy dressed in all black and wearing a black Kangol hat. I looked at him and thought to myself, I know this dude... but... from... where...? And then I thought, "HIGHSCHOOL!" So since he was seriously just standing around and hanging out at the check out counters I went up to him and said, "Dude did you go to Northside High School back in Georgia?" He said, "Nope." So I walked away totally confused of how I knew this guy. Then I asked someone in the check out aisle who he was and she said, "I can't remember his name but that's the Bio Dome guy." "Ahhhh... now I remember." And then I went home with my glue and a fun story.

  • True Story of a Great Cowboy
    8 Seconds is the best film you will ever see. But to really get the true meaning you have to know a little about Lane Frost and about rodeo. Rodeo is a hard but great sport that is not just a hobby, but a life style. Lane lived that life and did what most Cowboys and Cowgirls only dream of, winning a NFR Champion Buckle. You never hear a bad word spoken about Lane. The rodeo arena wont be the same without him and I know God appreciates this great cowboy. We all know how he is enjoying his time in the rolling valleys in heaven....more info
  • An Awsome Rodeo Movie
    8 Seconds is a totally awsome movie about the life of a cowboy traveling from rodeo to rodeo. It shows the hardship and pain of life along with the good parts. It is a real life movie. It was a biography that someone could really get into. It has a great story behind it and it is about a real hero that parents would like their kids looking up too. Lane played by Luke Perry is an all around down to earth American cowboy living his daily life while trying to get his father's love....more info
