Too much swearing! Dialogue consists of f*** in every sentence. Sometimes several times. Becomes tiresome and offensive.

worst movie i have ever tried to sit through

This movie is flat out stupid. I personally loved how the wolves would rather run past all of the elk standing around and instead go through fire to eat the people with sticks.
Don't waste your time - I regret the 1hr I spent watching it until I came to my senses and turned the movie off.

Based on a short story The Grey is a tale of survival in the Alaskan wilderness following a plane crash. The seven oil men who survive the plane crash must battle the elements as well as a pack of grey wolves defending their territory. The grey wolf encounters are intense and throughout the movie one feels the fear, pain and suffering of the plane crash survivors .

Has its moments, especially when the men chat back and forth, philosophizing and joking. But don't worry if you don't see it - you're not really missing anything.

Very Good movie. Has some philosophical themes: Explores the life of a man who has given up, and decides to try and fight. Some people did not like the ending...well them people are dumb some. The end is like life: Uncertain. Best you can do is try and fight, even if uncertain outcomes. If you did not like this movie....you probably think Miley Cyrus twerking is art or Grown Ups was a good movie. May god have mercy on your dumb soul.

The Grey ---- (DVD - 2012) ---- Excellent!! ---- Enjoy! - Not for the young Kids to watch! ---- RichardPaul (finished 11-2013)

Have you ever wonder why the survivors just didn't start a forest fire to draw attention to their location? I wondered.

Had an intriguing element of continuous surprise. But, films with not good endings ruin films for me. If you're the kind of person that would like to see a movie about a plane crash in the tundra-nowhereness; combined with wolves that torture a group of men with gang-like mind games, well; then this is the film for you!

Don't bother with this one. I love Liam Neeson but this is one of his worst movies. Story is terrible. Made it hard to get into it, I found I was hoping for the characters to die off so that the movie would end. Pass this one by.

Ottway (voiceover): "There's not a second goes by when I'm not thinkin' of you in some way... I want to see your face, feel your hands in mine, feel you against me... But I know that will never be... You left me... and I can't get you back... I move like I imagine the damned do, cursed... And I feel like it's only a matter of time... I don't know why I'm writing this. I don't know, what can come of it... I know I can't get you back... I don't know why this has happened to us. I feel like it's me. Bad luck. Poison... And I've stopped doing this world any real good... Once more into the fray... Into the last good fight I'll ever know... (puts rifle barrel into his mouth, a wolf howls) Live and die on this day... Live, and die, on this day..."
