The Grey Review

DoBlu
10 July 2012
  • Excerpt: The Grey isn’t about the wolves. That’s probably a positive since nearly all of it’s wolf-based material borders on the ludicrous. It’s not a case of being “unrealistic” so much as the animal actions, going so far as to create a full on hierarchy to extract revenge, dim the survivalist elements. Jaws 4 was more credible, and there, the great white was swimming in fresh water.

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: I don’t remember a whole lot from High School not because I didn’t pay attention, but that it was just so long ago! One thing that stuck out, however, was a lesson from my Literature class. In this class we learned of the three themes of stories in that essentially every written work can be classified into. Man vs. Himself, Man vs. Man or Man vs. Nature. If there’s one thing that The Grey fits in, it’s got to be the latter.

  • Summary: "The Grey" is one of the first great films of 2012, an edge-of-your-seat tale of survival in the vein of Jack London.

The Grey Blu-ray Review

14 May 2012
  • Excerpt: The Film You've just kicked the butts of an endless line of evil guys. What's a movie badass to do? If you're Liam Neeson, you go to the dogs -- wolves, actually. In The Grey , Neeson plays Ottaway, an oil field worker whose foe is of the four-legged variety. He's got his own wolfpack, though, which includes a dwindling crew of plane crash survivors. The film starts off like the first episode of Lost , with the aforementioned crash.

High-Def Digest
30 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Some might dismiss 'The Grey' as a simple, man versus nature B-movie actioner, but this is one of those excellent films that stick with you long after the credits roll and it will only get better with additional viewings. As a Blu-ray, the video exactly replicates the theatrical viewing experience (though it doesn't always make for pretty high definition) and the audio is exemplary at times.

The Grey Movie Review

  • Summary: Part horror story, part survival tale and part group therapy session, it's as much about the beast within as the one lurking in the shadows.

The Grey

Cinema Blend
27 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The Grey that's being sold to you is not at all the movie Joe Carnahan has made. It's fair to expect certain things from the reunion of The A-Team director and Liam Neeson, and the promo ads that focus heavily on Neeson going mano-a-wolfo against some fearsome lupine creatures aren't entirely misleading.

The Grey

DVD Talk
26 January 2012
  • Excerpt: There's a stillness at the center of Liam Neeson which goes a long way to explain his unexpected yet delightful cinematic second act as an action hero. He's not the first actor to mine the "reluctant man of action" groove, but he's one of the few that actually makes you believe him; he projects a sense of a life lived before the camera rolled, of experiences and knowledge accumulated that he'd rather not call upon, but fine, if he must, he must.

The Grey

AV Club
26 January 2012
  • Excerpt: There was a time when Liam Neeson, as a sensitive magazine editor in Woody Allen ’s Husbands And Wives , looked so intimidated by the likes of Mia Farrow and Judy Davis that his 6’4” frame seemed as brittle as papier-mâché. Even Darkman , which cast him as a vengeful urban hero, emphasized his intense vulnerability and inner torment.
