[MINI-REVIEW] THE GREY

Joe Carnahan’s tough-as-nails survival film The Grey, which follows a group of unruly oil-men stranded in the remote Alaskan wilderness after their plane crashes, features some unexpected existential moments alongside the gritty action and suspense. Liam Neeson delivers an assured performance – easily the best of his recent glut of lowbrow action hero roles – and Carnahan reminds us what we saw in him a decade ago with Narc. While some of the effects work is a little dodgy in parts and the story occasionally lapses into implausibility, The Grey is an otherwise effective and beautifully shot thriller that manages to rise above its pulpy man vs. wolves/nature backbone and deliver surprising depth.

RATING: B
