In The Grey, Neeson is clearly the main character. We see him contemplate suicide at the start of the movie, before deciding against it. The story involves a group of oil workers stationed in Alaska. Ottway (Neeson) is a marksman who keeps the workers safe from wolves when they are at work. He carries a rifle and is always watching for possible attacks. He has a low opinion of most of the workers and doesn't enjoy having to spend time with them.
Ottway's world changes when he's involved in a plane crash. The oil workers encounter bad weather and turbulence, and the resulting crash leaves most of the group dead or dying. It's here that Ottway assumes a leadership role without being asked or voted in. Like the wolves he kills, his instincts cannot be denied. In the surviving group, it quickly becomes clear that he's the alpha. Ottway has a way of facing facts and helping others to accept the inevitable. This is perfectly illustrated when one of the crash victims dies in front of him. Ottway calms him and takes charge of the situation when the other men are incapable of deciding how to handle it.
The movie partly reminded me of The Edge, starring Anthony Hopkins. Although this group of survivors is larger, and they are hunted by wolves instead of a bear, the terrain is similar. The Grey seems realistic and doesn't idealize the situation in any way. The men are in danger and fighting for their lives, and their actions are plausible.Read more ›
Well, it's interesting, to say the least. 'The Grey' tells the tale of John Ottway (Neeson), a survivalist/sniper working in northern Alaska to protect an oil drilling team from ravenous packs of wolves that test the boundaries of the station. Isolated away from society with the workers as his only link to humanity, Ottway slips gradually into thoughts of suicide, driven by separation from his wife (Anne Openshaw), whom he remembers warmly and fondly through a series of flashbacks where she repeatedly tells him, "Don't be afraid." After refraining from suicide, Ottway boards a plane to head back to civilization, accompanied by other workers on shift leave. The plane suffers a catastrophic malfunction and crashes, killing some of the crew while leaving only a handful of survivors. Alone and isolated in the frozen, harsh wilderness, Ottway must gather up the men and utilize his survival skills to bring them all out safely. Things soon take a turn for the worst, however, when a pack of ravenous wolves begins stalking and eliminating the survivors one by one. Ottway must fight not only his own despair, but the selfishness, paranoia and stubbornness of the others whom he is forced to lead, if they wish to escape alive.
Without spoiling anything, let's just say that the film succeeds marvelously as a set piece.Read more ›
the lost of his real wife in that snowing incident here in Toronto a couple years ago, which
is fine by me, because i feel for the mans pain,[what a beautiful woman she was], now the movie
or movie, is very intense but it just seem to lack something and i can't figure it out, because
everything relate to his loss, of his movie wife and his real wife, now if you're going to just throw
in a plane crash [which was dam awesome what a sound from my system Wow] and some
wolves you better make it stand on it's own, I'm not saying i didn't like it, it just strike me as a
very odd movie or concept of a story, which to me could go anywhere, but up,
English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio.

Love Liam Neeson in this movie but not crazy about the movie itself. I found it unneccessarily long.Published 21 months ago by sharon truesdell
Awesome, from the beginning to the very end. I love Liam Neeson and have watched and own most of his movies.Published on April 10 2014 by Mich
Even Liam Neeson couldn't save this one. The story idea was a good one but the constant foul language was distastefully overdone and unnecessary. Read morePublished on March 3 2014 by M. McCarthy Pope
