The Grey ★★★

(6/8 is "Good")
Despite the tone beginning to waver in the middle, and uncertainties about character motivations only really being quelled at the end, this film surprised me with it's ultimate depth. It didn't quite follow through with the Hollywood formula I suspected at the beginning.

Could've used a script revision to develop some of it's ideas a bit more consistently though. The internal conflicts of these characters, particularly Neeson's, are fleshed out fairly ham-fistedly for the majority of the film (if at all).
