The Grey: Movie Review




     The Grey is about John Ottway (Liam Neeson), who snipes wolves in Alaska to protect oil workers. He goes on an airplane with a bunch of the workers who are going home, but they crash in the middle of the wilderness. John takes charge of the survivors who are stranded in the woods, where the wolves are at the top of the food chain.
     

     This movie wasn't great or amazing, but it was really good for a suspense/thriller movie. I liked the plot, the hunters became the hunted, and I found this movie to actually have some symbolism. There's a note that he keeps with him, it's the item of significance, but I can't tell you more. You will just have to see the movie to find out.
    

     I definitely recommend this movie to someone who likes action/suspense movies. Liam Neeson, as usual, does a really great job playing the protagonist of this movie. I also found it interesting that the director was also the writer. I think the script really fit the way that this movie was filmed, so Joe Carnahan did a great job with that.
     

     Overall this movie is really good, but not great. I would give it a B in it's genre, but as a movie overall probably a C+. I'm kind of a tough critic, but if you like suspense you should check it out because they do an exceptional job at keeping you on the edge of your seat.

  1. Oh wow, now that I read this review and saw the accompanying graphic, I recall seeing the trailers for this movie. Seems like it disappeared quickly. I like Neeson as an actor though and would consider "netflixing" this one.

  2. Good review. Have not seen this movie, but I might have to check it out (as you seem to know a lot about films). I like how deep you went into the analyzation of the film giving it a letter grade. How many stars would you give it?

  3. Well written review. I see this movie a lot on Netflix but have never watched it. From what you have written I think I will have to go and watch it. I have heard from others just about the same grade you gave it. Good job.
