Ottway (Liam Neeson) is hired in Alaska
to kill wolves that threaten an oil drilling
crew. After completion of his work their,
Ottway and the drilling team board an
aircraft home, during the flight and in severe
weather conditions the plane descends
crashing into the snowy, Alaskan wilderness.
The survivors lead by Ottway must not only
contend with the conditions, but also a pack
of killer wolves led by the alpha male, who is
tracking & killing them one by one.
Neeson gives one of his finest performances
as Ottway in THE GREY and is well supported
by the underrated Frank Grillo who plays Diaz
and Dallas Roberts as Hendrick. To think the
original casting of Bradley Cooper as Ottway
nearly happened… can you imagine?
Joe Carnahan is one my favorite directors, his
gritty thriller NARC and 2007s action fest
SMOKIN ACES put him in my movie radar, I
have to say THE GREY is his best movie to date.
If your looking for an edge of the seat thriller, with
wolves that make Freddy Krueger look like an
amateur in the Serial Killing department then get
yourself off to the theatre, this does not disappoint.
