THE GREY ( MA)
Stars: Liam Neeson, Dermot Mulroney
Director: Joe Carnahan
Available: Now on DVD and BD It’s a tough ask to make a killer wolf movie into something more than a ho- hum genre flick, but director Joe Carnahan achieves the unlikely here with his tale about a posse of tough oil workers from a downed plane who have to survive the elements and a pack of territorial wolves. Liam Neeson again proves he’s got the chops for action in this kill- or- be-killed thriller and the intense emotional drama between the wellexecuted killer wolf scenes is nicely handled. Extras: A series of short featurettes on the film’s extreme weather conditions, Liam Neeson’s involvement and the man versus nature themes.
