Director Joe Carnahan says, 'If you're afraid of wild animals or plane travel, this movie will put you off for a good, long time.' Really? One wants to know -- why is that a good thing?

"The Grey" is a film that reminds us how fortunate we are to be sitting in a theater or at home on the couch and not suffering frostbite, hypoxia and being in the dastardly predicament of having giant wolf fangs ripping our innards inside out.

In the case of The Grey, less would have decidedly been more.

The Grey remains a genuinely gripping survival story and a refreshing change from stale urban action flicks.

The Grey is an exciting, if uneven, paean to the macho ideal.

Carnahan's gripping yet grim thriller is either a masterpiece of reflective cinema, or a bleak, inexcusably nihilistic bid to transcend movie tropes by alienating the audience.

A noteworthy performance from Liam Neeson keeps the character moments engaging and the man vs. nature scenarios offer a number of memorable sequences.

There are points where you can feel the filmmakers really trying to get their point across, only to have it lost again in a film that gets its story stuck in a rut.

A bold, uncompromising film that can't be dismissed as mere entertainment, no matter how thrilling it is.

May very well be the best thrill ride of the year even after August. Don't miss it.

The Grey is a powerful drama, a chilling tale of horror, and an uplifting, emotionally raw look at the nature of man and spiritually.

I can't say I was sorry it was over. But it also has the stark purity of an icicle; it earns my respect if not my love.

I went into the fray and rode this intense, emotional ride with the characters. The Grey is hypnotic, terrifying, affective, poetic, and the best film that I've seen this year.

This movie starts off with the main character putting a gun to his head, having decided his life has no meaning or purpose. After that, the story starts getting depressing.
