    The Grey doesn’t want you think about the reality or the plausibility of the situation, but rather the sincerity and emotional truth of its characters. Joe Carnahan’s survival-adventure drama is bleak, uncompromising, and riveting in all aspects. It follows a group of oil drilling team who survived in a plane crash and their struggle to survive battling nature and the wild. Liam Neeson is wonderful in a vulnerable turn that symbolizes the man’s will to survive against all odds.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I would classify this as a man's movie that is, men trying to survive impossible odds and learning more about themselves in the process. This was based on a short story/book called Ghost Walkers and it is pretty compelling that the men in this movie were simply existing in their normal lives but only really live when faced with death.

    There really isn't any Liam Neeson wolf-punching. The wolf-punching is implied. What there is, is a story of men versus nature - their own, and the wilderness. It's kind of an examination of hyper-masculinity, but I didn't come away from it thinking the movie had a very clear message it wanted to convey. It's basically that scene from Jurassic Park in the long grass where the raptors pick off the stragglers one by one but stretched into a whole movie…

    Unexpectedly bleak stuff with some nicely done characterization and non-cartoonish attitude. I could even go so far as to say that this is a "thinking man's The Revenant", because instead of a visually spectacular, but meaningless ponderings Carnahan does actually present some serious matter to think about. And the ending was perfect - reminded me of those good old times when Hollywood wasn't scared shitless of dark open endings in survival films (think, for example, about Hill's terrific "Southern Comfort").

    The Grey takes itself very seriously. Very. Seriously. At no point do you ever believe these men are actually going to escape their desperate surroundings. The bleak tone and visceral nature of the storytelling is where The Grey sets itself apart from more traditional man vs. nature adventures. Rarely does a moment feel sugar coated. If the situation appears unwinnable, it is.

    Para os mais novos, Liam Neeson não passa de um ator de ação de filmes genéricos. Mas ele é ótimo, como prova esse exercício de tensão, o mais puro exemplar do cinema-sobrevivência. Mesmo sem fugir dos clichês, esse longa de Joe Carnahan é um achado, com personagens bem desenvolvidos e um ótimo elenco. Às vezes, os filmes mais surpreendentes são aqueles em que não esperamos nada. Dica: não vejam antes de dormir.

    Amazing movie. I would pay good money to watch this in a cinema, with the music from this movie being replaced with the main theme from The Revenant.
