The Grey: Late Movie Review
Director: Joe Carnahan

I really wasn't expecting too much from this movie to be honest with you. The trailer did very little to peak my interest and the re teaming of director Joe Carnahan and Liam Neeson from "The A-Team" did even less. It also seems that a lot of these man vs nature movies follows a basic pattern, and that gets old really fast "The Grey" does follow the same structure but it does add in some nice adjustments to come off as a solid winner
Ottway(Liam Neeson) and a band of oil diggers have crash landed in the middle of nowhere during one of the worst winter storms ever. But since I live in Minnesota I couldn't feel that bad for them. Than again our winters don't come with a pack of man eating wolves either. So I'll admit they got the shit end of the stick. In that they will become wolf shit after they get eaten by the pack. The group than has to learn to overcome their fears and do what needs to be done in order to survive. Of all the man vs nature movies I have seen. This one is the one I would buy into the most.
