THE GREY would have been satisfying enough if it were merely Liam Neeson punching the fuck out of wolves for 2 hours. Instead, director Joe Carnahan presents a Jack London/Hemingway-esque tale of survival and man vs. nature.
Jean Valjean, a Frenchman imprisoned for stealing bread, must flee a police officer named Javert. The pursuit consumes both men's lives, and soon Valjean finds himself in the midst of the student revolutions in France.
He's not going anywhere. "I'm very fortunate to get to play these characters at this stage of my life," Liam Neeson told People in August 2014. "I love doing it, and I'll keep doing it as long as they keep sending me these scripts."
