    Film #13 of the "Scavenger Hunt" Challenge
    Task #27 A film about animals/wildlife attacking

    You gotta believe that the advertising department looked at this movie and then thought, "How do we make it look like Neeson kicks ass?" Because he doesn't really. He stands his ground against a pack of wolves and slightly less alpha-y men than himself, but at no real time can you say Liam Neeson kicks ass in the style we have all become accustomed to. Well,…

    A highly effective, self-contained thrill ride anchored in many surprisingly quiet moments of emotion and reflection. This is the kind of film I'd want to make.

    Film about animals/wildlife attacking

    "We are the animals..."

    Joe Carnahan's The Grey is not particularly a bad movie. It wasn't a memorable watch either. It is one of those films which had a lot of good things, but didn't really reached the apex of goodness.

    A plane crash unites seven people, while they are forced to find their way out of nowhere, fighting cold blizzards and big, bad wolves. So, basically this one…

    The Grey had a poor marketing team behind it, misleading viewers to believe they were getting Liam Neeson vs Wolves. That's not what this movie is about. The Grey is about finding the will to live and understanding what you believe in and why you are alive. While not a perfect film by any means, The Grey is a nice change of pace from other action movies.

    Recommended to all of those "Man against Nature" fans... A bit formula, a lot of fantasy (those are superbionic wolfs!)... but a decent ride nevertheless.

    Wow. That was unexpected.

    While my parents were watching The Fisher King, I thought I'd give The Grey a shot. We've all lost faith in Liam Neeson as an action star after the Taken trilogy, but here he reminded why I enjoy some of his films. This film fits in the survival category quite nicely while possessing elements of horror as well. Not the torture porn variety about a foreign freak show. No these fears were more grounded in reality…

    Want to know how to make a kick-ass action film?

    Liam Neeson.

    The Grey wouldn't work without him. But it does, and so despite numerous character archetypes and disjointed action sequences, the film prevails.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Amazing action from beginning to end, with a great story woven in of the characters. Making a majority of the deaths happen in unconventional ways, not just by the wolves (which I might add, are a very scary and terrifying threat).

    So I watched this recently to review this and this film is nearly amazing. Liam Neeson was awesome in this and the supporting cast was perfect to. This film Is very well directed to. There are some flaws and that is that it's a little slow at times. Also everybody complained about the ending and I really liked it. I'll give The Grey an A-

    A powerful drama that doubles as a terrifying adventure story, The Grey is a superb film that tows the line between Malick, Bergman, and Huston. Carnahans direction and writing are almost too good to believe, with certain shots and certain metaphors coming to polished life before our eyes. The cast is incredibly game, especially Neeson who has rarely been as human as he is in this film. A great film, that comes highly recommended.
