Liam Neeson’s new film, THE GREY hit theaters tonight at midnight…but I was one of the lucky ones…I got to see an early screening of the film. Lets start off by saying…Liam Neeson is a total bad ass. (LOL) I put this dude up there with Sean Connery, Al Pacino, or even a Robert DeNiro. (LOL) No matter how old they get – - THEY WHOOP ASS!
THE GREY is a simple plot. Liam Neeson plays a dude named, Ottway – his job…to project oil-rig workers of the Alaskan wilderness. Protect them from what you may ask? Creatures. Creatures with sharp teeth. Creatures with sharp teeth that will eat you if given the chance. (LOL) One night – after a long day’s work – Ottway (Neeson) and some of the workers – board a plane to head back home. All of a sudden…the plane CRASHES!! CRASHES IN THE ALASKAN WILDERNESS. YEP…these dudes are totally screwed. BUT…never fear…OTTWAY IS HERE! He pretty much gathers all the dudes, whatever food and weapons they can find – and decides to heads towards civilization.
Sounds pretty simple, right? WRONG!! Some of the dudes are injured, it’s a snow blizzard with -60 degree weather ANNNDDDDD…a pack of rogue wolves are hunting them. Yes…SUCKS TO BE THEM.
DON’T GET EATEN
I liked THE GREY people. Plenty of action and plenty of ‘OH SH*T’ moments. It’s worth checking out on the big screen – - – OH and one thing. Make sure you STAY till after the credits…there’s one final scene. I made the mistake and didn’t – - – I’m still thinking about seeing it again…yes, for that one part – I need to feel complete. (LOL)
I give THE GREY… 3 ½ out of 5 POPCORNS!
