The Grey

I really wanted to like “The Grey”, a film starring Liam Neeson leading a group of plane-crash survivors being stalked by wolves in the Alaskan wilderness. The trailer made it look like a determined struggle against the odds, an old-fashioned adventure yarn, an inspirational tale. Unfortunately, despite beautiful cinematography and artistic direction, it turned out to be a morally bankrupt film with the single worst record for foul language I’ve *ever* encountered, and a penetrating bitterness of spirit that left me regretting my own determination to see it through to the end. Even watching it at double speed (VLC will let you do that, and still hear the dialogue, but the script only really contained variations on one word anyway) – even watching at double speed, it was a waste of 58 minutes. Avoid.
