Probably the most interesting movie about guys who like to ride animals for money.
8 Seconds (originally titled 8 Seconds to Glory) is a 1994 biographical film about American rodeo legend and world bull riding champion Lane Frost. It details his life from his youth learning how to ride bulls, until his death in 1989. It was directed by John G. Avildsen and stars Luke Perry as Frost, Stephen Baldwin as real life rodeo legend Tuff Hedeman, and Red Mitchell as cowboy poet Cody Lambert. The title refers to the length of time a bull rider is required to stay on for a ride to be scored.
Young Lane Frost (Cameron Finley) learns the tricks of the bull riding trade at the hand of his father, Clyde (James Rebhorn), an accomplished rodeo bronco rider himself. As he enters his teenage and early adult years (Luke Perry) he travels the western rodeo circuit with his best friends Tuff Hedeman (Stephen Baldwin) and Cody Lambert (Red Mitchell). He meets and falls in love with a young barrel racer, Kellie Kyle, and eventually they marry in 1984.
As Lane's legend and fame increase, so...
