The Grey

The Grey(2012)

Liam Neeson is back in another action movie of sorts, only this, time he's fighting wolves. As condensed as the film is, I could never become emotionally attached to these characters. This kind of an aspect is probably the most important thing to establish when making a survival flick. While the film does have a few interesting aspects and some cool action, much of the emotion comes off as forced. As if they just had to throw in the fact that Neeson has a wife of sorts that he misses so that you will ultimately care for him. I guess you end up caring for him just because he's Liam Neeson, but I truly had no concern for any of the other men; of which had the most clique of backstories. 5.9/10
