    If I'm ever stranded in the Alaskan wilderness, I really hope Liam Neeson is with me.

    This is a fairly intense story about survival, but at it's heart it's even more a story about how we face our own mortality. Really nicely shot and good sound work really makes the environment and the dangers it contains come alive. Might be a bit slow paced for some, but I really enjoyed it.

    By the numbers and doesn't offer much of value beyond the landscape and winter-setting.

    Rewatch-probability: 1/5
    (I'm not saying I'd rather be eaten by wolves, but I would at least have to consider it)

    Man kann sich nicht des Gefühls erwehren, dass wann immer eine Frage aus dem Themengebiet „Tiere“ bei Günter Jauchs "Wer wird Millionär?" gestellt wird, die Kandidaten entweder recht lange für die Beantwortung der Frage brauchen, überdurchschnittlich viele Joker einsetzen oder ganz aufgeben. Besuche in Zoos und die dort meist unfreiwillig zu hörende Kommentare und Erklärungen der Besucher zeugen davon, dass manchmal jede noch so gut gemachte und informative Tafel am Gehege vergebens ist. Und den Umstand, dass ein Bär erschossen…

    i was inspired to watch this again because of this great video.

    kinda like the revenant, but y'know, good.

    grief and depression as a sprawling, inescapable wilderness. potential cliche turns deeply emotional through joe carnahan's icy and soulful compositions. a taught and unassuming survival thriller told through the lens of a more moody and art-house type. liam neeson gives what might be his best performance, his character a direct rebuttal to societal notions of masculinity. all this is made more…

    I think this film came out during a slew of other Liam Neeson badass action movies, which is what sent it slightly under the radar. But this is personally one of my favorite films from him. I was entertained from start to finish.

    As an action film, the movie isn't really all that great. Average at best. As a stoic allegory about a man confronting death and his own mortality, the movie is amazing. Everything that doesn't work about the action film makes the allegory that much better.

    [...] Anfangs – nachdem roughe Holzfäller-Männer nach einem Flugzeug-Absturz im kanadischen Eis völlig aufgelöst und weinend durch die Trümmer kriechen – scheint es noch, als ob hier mal etwas präsentiert werden wird, das ganz andere Wege als der Durchschnittsfilm einschlägt. Die erste Sterbeszene nach dem Absturz ist unheimlich menschlich und feinfühlig inszeniert – meilenweit entfernt vom üblichen Pathos solcher Momente. [...] Regisseur/Co-Autor Joe Carnahan und Kameramann Masanobu Takayanagi verstehen es, die kalte, lebensfeindliche Stimmung der Umgebung zu transportieren, der gelungene…

    A brilliant underrated movie that focuses on survival as well as death. As men who survive a plane crash now have to the face the harsh Alaskan wilderness and the wolves that thrive within it. 

    It's visually beautiful and the script is written to make each character come across believable, as well as all being unique and different from one another. As soon as you begin to settle down and accept what is happening the film gives you a slap…

    People who went in looking for a typical survival narrative are probably disappointed.. justifiably in some aspects

    Neeson is much better in this than those Taken films. Keep watching into the credits...
