The Grey

Posted by admin on February 1, 2012


Born in a Castle tower in Ireland,

Much more badass then any man.

Once saved the Jews and was in the A-team ,

Can use a lightsabor to the extreme.

Liam, Liam Neeson. King of the Wild Frontier.

Liam Neeson is a very interesting man. He has had a long career in Hollywood, but only recently has he been more open to doing more mainstream material. The Grey seems like a step backwards. I don’t mean this in a bad way. What I mean is this movie seems to have an art house style. While some people may find this boring, I found it very exciting.

The Grey is a wilderness survival story about a group of outdoorsmen workers who become part of an airplane crash, leaving them in the middle of the Alaskan Wilderness. Not only are they short on food and supplies, but also have apparently landed in the middle of a wolf den.

The movie does not go soft on anything. The airplane crash is one of the most terrifying crashes I’ve seen recently. You don’t really enjoy it. You feel like your gonna die alongside. With the wolves on their trail, everything looks bad. One by one, each survivor gets attacked and eaten by these animals. So if everything about this movie seems hopeless for these people, why should we care.

This movie is more about accepting ones fate and how we should react to it. If we don’t like what has been given to us, do we try to escape it, or enjoy what we have now? Many of the scenes are of Liam Neeson and the survivors around the campfire, discussing everything that is important to them.

The good news is that many of the scenes are thrilling and leave you on the edge. The wolves look abosutly terrifying. The only thing that I didn’t like were the computer effects on them. They use both real and animated, but they don’t go together to well. But this is only a small problem. 


I'll give this 4 blood thirsty wolves out of 5. Be careful!
