I'm pro-wolf and pro-Liam, and anticipated this movie for months. Here we go:
1. The sound is awesome. I pick a tiny bone that the wolves were dubbed as tigers (wolf growls not sufficiently frightening?) but the utter isolation and unsurvivable weather came across 100%.
2. The ending - wait until after the credits.
3. Liam's best performance after "Taken". No question. A must for Liam fans.
4. The wolves, whilst ever-present, don't cause all the deaths. Some deaths are due to the plane crash, the weather, the journey, or accident. So not an unrealistic wolf witch-hunt.
5. Yes, anyone connected with wolves knows how fast they can run, and therefore this film would have ended in half the time or less. It's a major flaw.
6. At times you'll find yourself screaming at the screen while the characters yap on wasting time, or make similar unsurvivable mistakes, but that's just the benefit of being at home, safe & healthy & not in shock.
7. There are one or two scenes that will stay with you for a long time. Sometimes for what is NOT shown. Heh heh. And at least one of these is genuinely moving.
8. The plane crash is one of the best I've seen since "Alive".
9. One ponders just how much good we are without guns, in an environment where other animals are adapted and we are not.
10. I would have liked to see it as an 18 cert, and more realistic wolves, but wolves aren't easy to train. They make up their own mind. And that's why this film is less outlandish than you think... wolves are canny, they plan. They track. They don't give up on a fair chance of food. And they're patient. So much respect to the wolves, this hasn't harmed them one bit.
Thank you & goodnight x

Okay, so I see that quite a lot of people are not getting what this film is about.
Yes, it's a survival movie, no, it's not supposed to be a horror or an action flick,
though we are given plenty of action here.
Yes, the plot is predictable, yes the CGI wolves are unconvincing to say the least, though they fare far better than other recent movies which fobbed us off with a far worse version...ahem...I reveal no names!

This movie is saved by the beautiful scenery, and the way in which each shot is designed to take your breath away. It is saved by the psychological game it plays with you. It gets you tense from the beginning, and keeps you that way until the end. It is almost as though you are out in that wilderness along with them, and despite the roughness and crudeness of some of the men - you REALLY want them all to survive.
This movie makes your heart thump in your chest and want to squeeze your eyes shut when Neeson and the gang take a risk. The uncertainty is what makes this movie terrifying, and the vastness and seeming hopelessness of the situation. It is the emotion and the mindsets of the men that drives the story, THAT is what it is about.
Liam Neeson gives a very powerful performance, and so do some of the other characters.
Okay, I was a little disappointed with the ending, and I got a little bored of the flashback scenes, but this is a film that grabbed my attention and held it, and if you go into this with your eyes open,and just let the journey take you, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I have seen the plot before and it is rare that it works. And when I heard there would be CGI Wolves, I was hesitant to say the least.

However, given the right director, authentic location shooting, powerhouse performances and the IMPLIED threat of a merciless predator, this type of film can work. Thankfully, this is the case with 'The Grey'.

So the plot is really nothing new. An oil drilling team crashes in Alaska and must face a pack of territorial wolves as they struggle to make their way through and survive. So far, so simple. But the director, Joe Carnahan (showing us again the visual gritty panache and character development he revealed with subtlety in 'Narc' and less so in 'The A Team') uses the dire circumstances of his protagonists as a means to explore the emotional, psychological and spiritual consequences of confronting their eventual demise.

Purists and animal lovers will abhor the role of the wolves. They seem DELIBERATELY cruel in their hunt of the survivors of the plane crash. Both sentient and cognitive, they demonstrate a willingness to hunt the humans down one by one as if they have made a plan and are determined to execute it with ruthless efficiency. Even though cases of wolf attacks on humans are quiet rare, the movie suggests that should anyone find themselves in the middle of wolf territory, or indeed a wolf den, then ALL bets are off.

In fending off the wolf attacks, these already rough-hewn oil refinery workers have to revert back to their primitive selves and in so doing reveal their insecurities, their fears and their failures.

'Ottway' ( Liam Neeson ) is one of just seven suvivors of a plane crash, his expieriience as a huntsman makes him the ideal leader esspecially as they find themselves stranded in the middle of nowhere.
The weather is severe with blizard after blizard, also they are trespassing on a wolfpacks territory, just by being there.
it will become a fight for survival as the survivors attempt to walk to safety, however the wolves have a very different agenda.
Survival against the odds is a well troden theme in movies down the years, must admit this film is far more intense in content than most i've seen down the years.( I don't understand why many critic's under-rate the movie)
It'll startle you on many occassions.........great performance by 'Liam Neeson' well worth a watch.
