    12/30 A movie about the outdoors

    It's blunt. Could be a bit sharper. I need lots of edge in my movies, for I am such an edgy man!

    did a good enough job of putting some nature fear in me
    entertaining men man male movie

    A lot better and grimmer than I expected, with an utterly frustrating ending, yet you know it was the best way to end the film.

    A true testimony to human's will to survive, The Grey is a thrilling survival/horror/action/thinker movie that sets a unique tone and delivers on it. Liam Neeson does a phenomenal job anchoring this movie as the likable survivalist, while still giving us the emotion needed for the tougher scenes. The movie's themes are about giving your all, every day, no matter what struggles are before you. The ending in particular really nails this theme home, crafting a unusual yet oddly satisfying…

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

    This survival thriller is filled with emotions, not only coming from the protagonist in Liam Neeson's John Ottway, but as well as the supporting cast who all have fleshed out characters.

    The film makes you feel. Especially with the undertone of Neeson's real life situation in regards to his wife, it makes this film's viewing much more impactful. The dread of the brutal weather, fear of death, us all written in the cast's acting.

    The cinematography was not especially impressive…

    The Grey on the surface is a group of people that survive a plane crash only to face an even more deadly force in blood thirsty wolves. However the film digs deeper than this simple setup. Giving the men back story and the entire run-time is full of religious undertones. Liam Neeson is great as their de facto leader. Especially the end of the film he is really given a chance to show his range beyond that seen in many…

    Another no stars entrant. The Big Bad Wolf Movie. It kicks verisimilitude to the curb very early on so that leaves us with fantasy or allegory. If it is trying to symbolise some aspects of the human condition through allegory then all the Alpha male stuff can fuck right off. That leaves fantasy adrenalin fuelled action thriller. Something it clearly isn't. It goes for all the hack 'never do this' writing deus machina. Plane crash, literal cliff hanger...I think the…

    Grimmiger Survivalfilm mit guter Athmosphäre. Bis auf das enttäuschende Ende ein feiner Reißer (Wortspiel!).

    Ο θάνατος. Πες το σκοτάδι. Πες το κρύο. Πες το λύκοι. Το τέλος. Η κοινή μας μοίρα. Η αιώνια μοναξιά. Το άγνωστο του επέκεινα. Ο φόβος που προκαλεί. Η αυτοκτονία που είναι πάντα μια λύση, μια λύση όταν διαλέγεις να παραιτηθείς, όταν διαλέγεις να καταθέσεις τα όπλα, όταν δεν έχεις άλλες δυνάμεις να το προσπαθήσεις, όταν έχεις πεθάνει πριν πεθάνεις.

    Όχι.

    Θα μείνεις εκεί να προσπαθείς, να το πολεμάς μέχρι τέλους, να καταφέρνεις μικρές νίκες έναντι του θανάτου, ακόμα κι…

    On the surface this is a tense thriller, he icy landscape gives the setting an atmospheric sense of isolation and the wolves hunting the characters add to some rather eerie scenes.
    Underneath it all though is an emotional story about personal survival, and Neeson plays the lead wonderfully against his fellow cast mates.

    The Grey is a fast paced survival thriller that surprisingly provides a philosophical meaning to it's core. Big acting from Liam Neeson he is yet again the leading man and with a cast around him that do an OK job too, this isn't done badly at all. It has it's boring moments of course and also some truly thrilling parts which may just get you to be on the edge of your seat. I felt that this movie was just…
