The Grey Liam Neeson battles nature and puts up a good fight in director Joe Carnahan’s totally absorbing and devastating survival pic. The Grey tells the scary and surprisingly emotional tale of some Alaskan oil drillers who find themselves stranded in the middle of frozen tundra after their plane crashes. There’s scant chance of survival due to lack of food, lack of shelter and lack of time before temperatures drop and people freeze. There’s also the little matter of nasty, evil wolves trying to dismember them as they fight to stay warm and find food. The animals in The Grey have very little in common with White Fang. Actually, they make the werewolf from An American Werewolf in London look like an elderly pug. Frank Grillo, Dermot Mulroney and Joe Anderson all shine in supporting roles, but this is Neeson’s movie, containing some of his best work.
