  • Editorial Reviews

    The plane crashes (boy, does it crash) in the remote Alaskan nowhere, and the rough-and-tumble oil wildcatters who survive must fight their way to safety. That in itself might be enough from which The Grey could fashion a suspenseful thrill-ride, but the movie has one more ace up its sleeve. Wolves! A pack of them, starving and considerably irritated that these outsiders have blundered into their territory. And while it is true that most real-world wolves are hardly man-eaters, director Joe Carnahan and cowriter Ian Mackenzie Jeffers are really not all that interested in reality. Despite some hair-raising moments and a healthy spattering of gore, The Grey is an existential action picture, and the wolves function only as all-purpose predator (being computer-generated, they never really look real anyway). What's really at stake are the souls of these men--how they get along together, and how they face death. Yes, there is always something faintly absurd hanging around this movie; it's like a Jack London story adapted by Luc Besson. But out of its pulpy mash, Carnahan extracts something gutsy. It certainly helps that he's got the mighty Liam Neeson on board as the most capable of the survivors; Neeson exudes the kind of authority that the average action hero can only play-act. Dallas Roberts and Dermot Mulroney add color, and Frank Grillo jumps off the screen as the most belligerent of the desperate crew. It's possible for a movie to have an absurd premise yet carve something unexpectedly philosophical out of that: The Incredible Shrinking Man and Rise of the Planet of the Apes come to mind. Add this one to that oddball list. --Robert Horton

    Product Description

    Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List, Taken) stars as the unlikely hero Ottway in this undeniably suspenseful and powerful survival adventure. After their plane crashes into the remote Alaskan wilderness, a roughneck group of oil drillers is forced to find a way back to civilization. As Ottway leads the injured survivors through the brutal snow and ice, they are relentlessly tracked by a vicious pack of rogue wolves that will do anything to defend their territory. Adrenaline-fueled, action-packed and loaded with some of the most intense and brutally realistic attack scenes ever filmed, The Grey is being hailed as “a thriller you can sink your teeth into!” (The Washington Post)

    4.0 out of 5 stars Carnahan's best work to date? Possibly January 26, 2012
    There were a lot of things that felt like they were kept secret on purpose before sitting down and viewing The Grey for the first time. The trailer hints at the movie being nothing more than a survival thriller starring Liam Neeson as he struggles to survive not only the unrelenting cold elements, but also the ferocious wolves that inhabit his surroundings. The Grey is written and directed by Joe Carnahan, the man who brought us Smokin' Aces and The A-Team. The movie is also produced by Tony and Ridley Scott, which you think the marketing campaign would jump all over but doesn't even mention. Not only that, but there is quite a bit more to the movie than the trailer and TV spots let on.

    As the movie begins, Ottway (Liam Neeson) narrates a letter he's writing to his wife. This segment just made me realize what my life is lacking most right now and that's a Liam Neeson voiceover for every thought that crosses my mind. Think about that. It'd be the most amazing thing ever. The trailer reveals a few major things: that Ottway is stranded in the middle of nowhere in the blistering cold thanks to a plane crash and that wolves stand in the way of him actually surviving this ordeal. The plane crash itself is one of the best executed in recent memory. The way it's filmed and edited is downright ruthless. It's as if you're on the plane as it goes down. The Grey doesn't just place you in this blizzard-ridden hell infested with wolves, it kicks your teeth down your throat, laughs in your face, and throws you into it with everything it has.

    The movie gives new meaning to some of the simplest things. Seeing your breath in cold weather takes on an entirely new definition and the way The Grey deals with death just feels incredibly powerful.

    5.0 out of 5 stars What is the meaning of life? May 7, 2012
    Countless philosophers and religions have tried to answer that by actually giving us a set of commandments, rules or viewpoints to actually give meaning to something we simply do not have a straight answer for. In the end, the meaning of life is the meaning we ourselves give to it.
    The Grey is all about this, had the writer director for this move have been a fan of normal Hollywood movies with a lollipops for everybody and a happy endings this probably would never have made, and that would have been such a shame.
    The basic premise of the movie is pretty simple; a plane crashes in the middle of Alaska and a group of survivors try to make their way into civilization while being hunted by the local wolves. I could talk about the magnificent photography, the brilliant casting of Liam Neason or the stark beauty of the Alaskan landscape, but instead I will focus on what becomes the central point of this movie; when everything seems to be against you, what is it that truly matters to us, what makes us tick and in the end when everything seems to be done, what comfort do we get out of it?
    The answer is as varied as the characters of the movie itself, and in a sense some have that quite moment of reflection take away from them by the circumstances, and some others simply have the moment come upon then after everything else seems to be exhausted.
    Rarely have I watched a movie and felt this weight upon me, because we might dodge the issue and try to justify the way we have lived and the things we have done, but it is with movies like these that we feel a creeping feeling that we might have take our time for granted or numbed ourselves in our petty little lives surrounded by our petty little machines and toys...but in the end we face the reality of the meaning of our lives...

    1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother February 9, 2013
    Format:Amazon Instant Video
    This movie could have benefitted from several consultants. I fly medevac planes over all of Alaska, and I will give you my top ten reasons why this movie isn't worth the plastic box it comes in...

    1. The north slope has no mountains, or trees... and wolves only when the Caribou are migrating through, which doesn't happen in winter. No one hires wolf snipers to protect oil workers.
    2. The first trees they come to (after leaving the slope) are huge conifers. You have to fly over about 200 miles of tiny black spruce to get to any large trees. Then to a canyon? with a river with running water in winter?? Spring in the Bob Marshal wilderness in Montana maybe... but not up here. Sorry.
    3. Liam just walks out of the river, and keeps on keeping on. His clothes are dry in a few minutes. Liam, Liam, Liam. You need a fire.
    4. When the impossible 85 foot long jump has occurred, everyone decides to go across the contrivance feet first. When you survive YOUR wolf saga, go head first. It works better.
    5. Spend some time around oil roughnecks. They are not soft voiced touchy feeling sorts. The river scene when the biggest jerk of them all gets sort of tired and gives up is overdone. Reality? I would have stabbed him in the brainstem a couple of days earlier when he started to ruin morale. There is also a scene whereupon these "toughened brawlers" are getting grossed out by (the biggest jerk) by him decapitating a wolf that they have killed and cooked as a statement.
    6. You don't outrun wolves. Neither do you hear them crashing about in the woods.
    7. The Alpha wolf looks just about like the Wolf from "Fantastic Mr. Fox"; and sounds like a mother elephant urging her young toward the next watering hole. What... real wolves aren't scary enough?

    As someone who liked Taken and Unknown, but kind of disliked Non-Stop and Taken 2, I recommend The Grey over those latter two. This is a wonderfully crafted survival action movie. Read more
