If you have seen the trailers for this film and expected an actually movie showing Liam Neeson punching wolves in the face, prepare to be shocked.  This film IS NOT AN ACTION MOVIE, instead it is a bitter story of survival with many more scenes of tension and dialogue than action.  Please though, go see this film it is quite good and very intense.

Great QT! I was actually thinking this was going to be an action survivor flick, so it's good to hear it isn't what it seems. I love when that happens.

We’ve all seen a good number of ‘survival’ films the past two decades. I mean, it seems to be the kind of film that studios feel that it is the kind of thing that would be easy to make a quick buck. I mean, films like those often involve a lot of wandering, walking and a lot of interaction between characters.

*** out of ****    A plane filled with passengers, headed "home" - wherever that may be - from Alaska. A crash; leaving six survivors total. A wasteland covered in snow and ice; the air riddled with only the cold. The surrounding areas belong to the wolves; and the lives of those unfortunate souls stuck there belong to nature. This situation is scary on its own, and the only thing scarier than this, in my opinion, is a lone man faced with similar struggles. But this is clearly …

Star Rating:         The Grey is a deplorable example of exploitation, cruelty, and nihilism masquerading as philosophy. Here is a “survivalist” story in which the survivors are given the same reverence as horror movie victims, who appear to have depth and yet are merely awaiting their turn to die on cue. Not merely die, but become playthings for “nature,” which in this case is about as unnatural as it gets. It’s bad enough we have to endure …

Review: 'The Grey' 'Two Jews On Film' Feel The Power Of The Beasts' (Video)
            By Joan Alperin Schwartz      It takes a lot for a film to truly scare me. I mean, after seeing hundreds and hundreds of movies featuring, knife wielding masked maniacs, cannablistic nuclear families preying on hot teenage girls and demon possessed embroyos, I've become kind of blaise about the horror genre.      So many horror films are derative of one another. But I'm happy to say...this is definitely …
