Critic Reviews for The Grey
The Grey remains a genuinely gripping survival story and a refreshing change from stale urban action flicks.
The Grey is about raging against the dying of the light but also about accepting it with peace once the fight has been lost.
The Grey, despite moments of sublimity, is as predictable as a funeral. When Ottway angrily calls out to God, the nonanswer is sadly redundant.
Somewhere along the line, apparently, it was decided that having men fight for their lives is not enough to hang a movie on. It has to be a movie about Big Ideas.
Audience Reviews for The Grey
A thrilling movie that really knows how to extract tension from extreme situations - even though some moments seem a bit illogical, like the jolly barbecue in the woods -, with an intense story about man facing nature and fear, a stunning cinematography and strong performances.
Pretty interesting take on the survival genre as a group of oil workers up in Alaska crash land in the middle of nowhere, so that not only do they got cold to deal with, and that's neverending, but they got a wolfpack unhappy about their preserve being poached upon. Neeson is riveting as the leader with a twist. A good time at the movies.
One of the most audacious examples of false marketing ever. There are very few wolf attacks, there is very little Liam Neeson kicking ass. It's mostly existentialist drama of men trying to make it through the wild in one piece while failing in supposedly realistic and unspectacular ways. And when you think the film finally starts to deliver what you came to see it simply fades to black. Boo!
