Mio fratello: "Cosa vediamo stasera?"
Io: "Che ne dici di The Grey? Liam Neeson che prende a pugni i lupi!"
Mio fratello: "Perfetto!"
C'è poco da decidere: con una premessa così il film non può annoiare. E infatti: due ore di continua tensione, l'uomo contro la Natura e le avversità della vita e una grande interpretazione di Liam Neeson, qui non solo action star di mezza età, ma anche grande attore drammatico.
Nonostante un po' troppa shaky-cam per i miei…
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
i don't mean to over share but frank grillo's death scene was like reliving the moment in the hospital when the doctors told my father there was nothing else they could do for him. as I pleaded that surely there had to be another option or chemo or something, my dad smiled and just looked out of the hospital window and remarked at how beautiful the boston skyline was.
is this a perfect movie? honestly i don't know, care or even think so. all I know is that there is something special here.
don't be scared
Snow day rewatch!
With beautiful and desolate scenery and a powerhouse performance from Liam Neeson, The Grey is an exciting thriller that serves it's purpose, but doesn't go beyond.
Boring and nothing like what I expected it be. CGI on the wolves is underwhelming as were the performances. The ending is almost as terrible as the pacing issues in the film. The story was decent but could've been executed is so many different and far superior ways.

BRAIN, Y U NO WORK?
I guess it was entertaining enough to watch twice tho, so there's that...

Liam Neeson’s Ottway stands shivering in the wreckage of a plane over a dying man, his stomach has been cut open, whom he encourages to accept the warm blanket of death.

Pretty good! This was a lot better than what I was expecting and it totally exceeded expectations.
'The Grey' has loads of potential, but it assumes too much of itself and lags into laziness. Its script is more profanity than anything else, and the only character development to be seen is shaky cam memories of Ottway and his wife in bed. The other men of the group are flat as cardboard and just as dry. Where Joe Carnahan finally succeeds is in subtely, when he sits back and lets the story go to interesting places. When he…
It was scary. But I was left with nothing.
