This review is from: The Grey [DVD] (DVD)
This film gets a lot of grief because nature fan-boys lament the "unrealistic" behaviour of the wolves.
This is a real shame because whilst there is indeed a pack of wolves chasing a group of men, this is not a film about animals chasing down humans (like the Edge for example). Joe Carnahan has actually come up with a very special film, shot carefully and developing all of the characters beautifully (almost too well).
I hate to sound like a left-wing, tree-hugging critic, but this is actually a film about life, death, fate and the human spirit.
And it is absolutely amazing!

I don't think you have to be a "nature fan-boy" (whatever that is) to see that in many places in this film the quality of the dummy/model wolves was just awful (and actually reminded me of the 1960s Hammer Horror films).
This film was however saved by the great acting.
