Movie Reviews

  • trouble is, the pic's dialogue-heavy stretches and ambiguous finale could leave ticketbuyers impatient for less chatter and more chomping
    by Joe Leydon [Variety ]
  • this one's more relaxed in its rhythms
    3 of 5 by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune ]
  • this movie, it would appear, is looking for the same gravitas-laced trash appeal that made Neeson's over-the-top revenge fantasy Taken such a guilty pleasure
    by Ian Buckwalter [NPR ]
  • there's too much Jack London, and, as they systematically pick off the stragglers, too many CGI wolves go unpunched
    by Brian Miller [Village Voice ]
  • there's graphic gore, but miraculously, the writers also find humor in the men's natural coarseness
    Review rate : C by Rex Reed [New York Observer ]
  • the film's worst qualities are inevitably its most obvious, from the still-gaudy
    Review rate : C by Jesse Cataldo [Slant Magazine ]
  • the film does a largely first-rate job of simulating the punishing environment the characters have to push against
    Review rate : C+ by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies ]
  • technically assured and brutally efficient, with a simple story that ventures into some profound existential territory without making a big fuss about it
    by A.O. Scott [New York Times ]
  • plenty of chase scenes and gory encounters keep tension high
    by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • it's the most philosophical of these movies. It's also the most ambiguous
    by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe ]
  • it's quiet, contemplative, and almost haiku-like in its simplicity
    by Dana Stevens [Slate ]
  • if it ran about 80 mins., The Grey could be a smartish man-against-the-elements thriller
    by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine ]
  • every gutsy action scene is crafted with gritty detail and a muscular unpredictability that dares the audience to guess where it will end up
    Review rate : B+ by Cole Smithey [ ]
  • do these Liam Neeson action passion plays, as surely as a new year begins
    Review rate : C+ by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • alternately tense and fatuous thriller
    Review rate : C by Keith Uhlich [Time Out ]
  • a lot of muscle and brawn
    Review rate : C+ by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • a filmmaking strategy seemingly designed to alternate as well, appeals to guy movie and chick flick prone audiences respectively
    by Prairie Miller [NewsBlaze ]
