Adventure, Drama
Liam Neeson battles nature and puts up a mighty damn good fight in director Joe Carnahan’s absorbing and devastating survival pic. The film tells the scary and surprisingly emotional tale of Alaskan oil drillers who find themselves stranded in the middle of frozen tundra after their plane crashes. There’s scant chance of survival due to a lack of food, shelter and time before people freeze to death. There’s also the little matter of nasty, evil wolves trying to dismember them. The animals in The Grey have very little in common with White Fang. Actually, they make the werewolf from An American Werewolf in London look like an elderly pug. Frank Grillo, Dermot Mulroney and Joe Anderson shine in supporting roles, but this is Neeson’s movie, containing some of his best work. This one was a lot deeper than I expected.
