The Grey

JOY REVIEW

The Grey has got posters all over every place with a glaring Liam Neeson in a knit cap, looking grey. So, we have no idea what the movie is about from the posters, and you’re not going to have a whole lot of idea about what the movie is about for a very long time, which is one of the charms of it in that it’s a very different kind of movie. It turns out to be a survival movie, but I don’t want to tell you too much about it because I want you to discover it the same way I did. It’s certainly offbeat. It’s very well acted. It’s certainly downbeat, but I give it full credit for being at least creative and different, and the acting is terrific. Not a cheery, feel-good movie, but a very interesting one about the meaning, I suppose, of life among other things. Three and half stars.
