  Good start, bad ending

| | See all Samual's reviews (12)

The film starts out well, but just goes down from there getting more ridiculous as it goes, the only good point Liam Neeson's acting who clearly did his best despite the script.

  Total garbage from beginning to end.

One of the worst films I have ever seen in every aspect-only fit for the bin.

For me, not one of Neesons better films, slow in parts, ok in others, and not one I would watch that often...

  worst film ever

i would not even recommend this movie to my worst enemy. Liam Neeson can be a brilliant actor but this film is totally unbearable with bad acting bad storyline and the ending is a major disappointment.

Hmmm, not the worst film ive seen but felt a little disapointed, could have been great with a better script, and wolves of a more lifelike size, didnt need CGI wolves-wolf heads as big as grizley bears, the long shots of the pack were good as they were real and the scenery-cinematography brilliant.

  Worst Liam Neeson film EVER!!!

| | See all claire268's reviews (1)

This has to be one of the most boring films I have ever watched. Everyone dies after struggling to survive because the devil wolves are killing them off one by one...
Absolute trash!

I couldn't get into this at all, it showed early promise but as it went on things started to annoy me. Neeson's character's general sense of self importance, the opposite of what I usually appreciate about his other roles.

Kind of spoiler alert: but any back stories for the other guys seemed to be hashed together in the 5 mins or so before they die, after the first few you can use it to guess who is next rather than feel any empathy for them. I don't know, maybe if it had been longer and the character building was a bit more even and progressive it may have felt a bit more depthy as an overall experience. I am guessing that was the aim of this movie since there is no action or geniune suspense that I can remember.

  The Grey.

While it's anchored by a very good performance by Liam Neeson as the central character this was still a film that I found more ordinary than exceptional overall.

When a plane carrying them home from Alaskan wilderness crashes, a small group survives. Realising that they have few options they also soon realise that a band of wolves in the area will be looking for them as well. Setting off from the crash site, they must struggle to survive not only the environment..........but the wolves.

There's some interesting thematic elements here as each man in the team must come to the acceptance of their situation and it's reality and Neeson is very good, as are several of the supporting players. And although I wasn't keen on the first twenty minutes or so, I found that it got more interesting as it went.

The ending, however, may well be one that will frustrate and annoy some people although it is one that I personally felt was in keeping with what came before. Some of the photography is also impressive and there's an end credits scene as well that is to be looked out for if you haven't seen the film before you buy.

Don't agree with the other reviewers here, this is a slow burner for me. I found some parts very boring and depressing, it just lacked something for me. Neeson however and cast do produce good acting performances, hence two stars instead of zero. Just lacked a cutting edge for me.
