In The Grey, Liam Neeson leads an unruly group of oil-rig roughnecks when their plane crashes into the remote Alaskan wilderness. Battling mortal injuries and merciless weather, the survivors have only a few days to escape the icy elements - and a vicious pack of rogue wolves on the hunt - before their time runs out.-official synopsis


The film has opened to some strong reviews and for a January release, these are certainly impressive. One will have to wait to see if these positive reviews will help the film to rake in some big bucks at the box office. 

The Grey is an exciting tale of survival, populated with fleshed-out characters and a surprising philosophical agenda. RottenTomatoes   6.6/ 10  (75%)

The computer-generated wolves have more personality than any of the dull characters in The Grey.   Claudia Puig/ USA Today 

Despite some cliches, it’s a mostly gripping survival story, expertly shot and anchored by Neeson’s powerful performance. Frank Swietek / OneGuysOpinion B

I sat regarding the screen with mounting dread  Roger Ebert  3.5 /4 

Call "The Grey" "Deliverance" Lite, with snow, and wolves. And call it a solid January surprise. 
Michael Phillips/ ChicagoTribune  3/4
