This is a great movie and Luke Perry does a great job of playing Lane Frost. While it is not entirely factual, it does give a fairly accurate description of life in the rodeo. This is one of those movies I can watch over and over again. If you don't like bulls, dirt, and the cowboy way..... don't rent this movie. However it is a must see for any rodeo fan.

This movie is the best thing to happen to country <more>
movies. It has a great plot and theme. The actors and the director is absolutely Brilliant.
I first saw this movie when it came out. I think this is what created my love for bull riding. Well watching it that is. I have so much respect for those who go and do this every day for a living. I fell in love with 8 seconds the very first time I saw it. It is my favorite movie of all times. It will continue to be forever. I cry every time I see it. I don't know how a person can sit and not cry from watching it. The songs they chose for the movie are perfect. Reba's "If I had Only Known." That's a tear jerker in it's self. Also Billy Dean's song "Once and <more>
A While." I think? Great song too. And the pictures of Lane at the end. Oh my. I just couldn't stop crying. It was amazing. The fact that this is about a real person I think makes it so much more better.
This is a great sports movie. And frankly, I think it's better than John Avildsen's other sports movie, Rocky 1976 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0075148/combined .A story about a country boy turned world champion bullrider. It is about time, is all I can say. Lane Frost was a great cowboy, and he died doing what he loved. I have watched the real thing, and these boys deserve some real credit out there, doing what there doin.I just hope that some of the proceeds of this film went to the cowboys who need it. When Lane Frost died, a big part of PBR died along with him. I salute him for <more>
what he loved to do. At my school, we always watched this movie in our FFA class.It is definitely a favorite of mine, because, for one thing, it is much better than a lot of westerns you see these days. This movie is also a great love story between Lane and his wife, Kellie. If you love westerns, or romance movies, this one here is for y'all. I give it 9 of 10.
Of all the movies that my family has watched, this is the only movie that we don't intentionally rent. The first time Lane gets hurt is just too much for my husband to watch. Otherwise, 8 seconds would be on TV once a week if it were up to me. This is the only movie that I have seen in the theater where everyone remained seated through the credits. We were with another couple. I looked over to see my brother-in-law with tears streaming down his face as the end credits rolled and two songs played. In fact, most of the people sitting around us were crying. I was hesitant about watching <more>
Cynthia Geary after seeing her strong character on Northern Exposure tv . I think her performance here is cheesy. Better casting would have sent my vote to a 10 out of 10 but this one gets 9 from me. Most of it's appeal comes from the soundtrack and how moved everyone feels after watching it. If a movie ever influenced me, it is this one. To this day I follow Tuff Hederman's career, though I wasn't interested in rodeo before seeing 8 Seconds.
I saw '8 Seconds' a little while ago and thought it to be pretty good. It does contain some language and they did change the story line slightly from Lane Frosts real life, but overall it was a interesting video with likable characters. I'm a big rodeo fan so I especially enjoyed the bull riding and barrel riding scenes Kelly Frost is a barrel rider and the behind-the-chute action that the normal rodeo goer isn't able to see. I was a bit disappointed that they didn't mention that the real Lane Frost was a strong Christian, that they made his character in the movie have <more>
conflicts with his father when in reality they had a wonderful relationship, and that they included a cheating scene which never happened the real Lane and Kelly Frost did split up for awhile, but there never was any cheating done by either side I recommend this movie, especially if you have a language filter on your player :P although do be forewarned that there are some 'references' as well.
For those who don't know, 8 Seconds is the length of time one has to remain on the back of bucking bull in the bull riding event at a rodeo. I'm sure that those cowboys feel that those 8 seconds are like an eternity.This picture is about one of the very best at his profession, Lane Frost. The three principal players at the time this film was made, Luke Perry Beverly Hills 90210 , Stephen Baldwin The Young Riders and Cynthia Geary Northern Exposure were all at the height of exposure from popular television series' and brought a built in audience to the show.It helps by the way <more>
that Luke Perry bears an absolutely uncanny resemblance to the real Lane Frost. During the end credits there is some interview footage with the real Lane Frost so I'm sure there were a lot of oohs and aahs from the audience as the movie ended.I remember reading about Luke Perry and that his background before he became a teen heart throb was from a really tiny Ohio town. I'm sure that Perry understood the character of Lane Frost very well who hailed from a small town in Oklahoma. This film now joins other good movies about the rodeo scene, like The Lusty Men and Junior Bonner. Only difference is this one had an actual rodeo champion as a hero/protagonist.The portrayal of Lane Frost was as genuinely nice young man who rose to the top of his chosen profession through, skill, hard work, and dedication. He was doing as so few of us are privileged to do, actually make money doing what he loved. He gained a celebrity status in his field and was prey to the temptations that accompany fame. The Lane Frost, Perry gives us is a man who was very human. Doesn't detract in the least from his accomplishments. Cynthia Geary is fine as the wife who wins, loses, and wins Perry back ultimately. She's also rodeo people, the real Mrs. Frost was a barrel racing champion.And Stephen Baldwin as Tuff Hedeman who was Frost's best friend and eventual successor as bull riding champion registers well in his role.In 1994 the very year that 8 Seconds came out, professional bull riding spun out on its own as a sport with the formation of the Professional Bull Riders. It's champion in 1995 was none other than Tuff Hedeman. And in 1996 Tuff Hedeman and Lane Frost with both inducted in the PBR Ring of Honor, the equivalent of their Hall of Fame. It's a good biographical picture and should have gotten much more attention than it did.
The viewers out there who don't want to watch this movie because it is about the rodeo or has a country theme are missing a heck of a lot more than cowboys and cowflop. This movie deals with much more than bullriding. It deals with relationships, dreams, love and life in general. This movie really made me think about a lot of things, to me that is what determines if a movie is worth watching. Not that I am against a good action or comedy flick. But when one of these movies comes along it is really a shame if it is missed.
