Movie propaganda

SCHINDLERS LIST Academy Award® nominee Liam Neeson will reunite with his THE A-TEAM director Joe Carnahan, swapping eye-popping action for more grounded drama in the suspenseful man versus nature thriller THE GREY. From the powerhouse producing team of Ridley and Tony Scott, the film tells of a group of oil-rig workers who find themselves stranded on the freezing Alaskan tundra after their plane home crashes. Their efforts to survive and find a way home to their loved ones are threatened when the men come under attack by a pack of vicious, aggressive wolves, who see the humans as intruders in their territory who must be killed. Sighting films like DELIVERANCE and TOUCHING THE VOID as inspiration, Carnahan looks set to return to the gritty realism of his breakout hit NARC.

    Movie Review

    The Grey was a movie that I wanted to like. A group of workers find themselves in the middle of nowhere when their plane crashes, they then find themselves being hunted by wolves. Slowly and predictably they are being picked off one by one as they make survival decisions, some of which are bad and others good. The dialog between the characters is poorly written and their performances are not compelling. You never feel involved enough in the film to want to care for the characters and this unfortunate lack of crucial character building lets film down. There's not much more to say about this film but if you plan on watching it stop reading here because there is a spoiler ahead. There is one place that the film goes right with and that is the ending, everyone gets killed by wolves there is no sole survivor as is usually the case in these films. This was at least a refreshing ending not that I had any interest in what happened by the time it ended.
