Cinematic Releases: The Grey
Always a fan of Liam Neeson, I truly felt this was his best dramatic work since Schindler's List. He doesn't act in this movie, he inhabits the role and pushes his talent to the absolute edge with his convincing portrayal of a man pushed to the brink of humanity at the further most limits of the world.
Director Joe Carnahan (Narc) once again steps behind the lens and delivers us an absolutely stunning piece of work. The Grey is by far his best work and definitely pushes his directorial career beyond that of most modern directors. This is his third great movie out of seven. That's quite an accomplishment.
I don't have one complaint about The Grey. It's an edge of your seat, never by the numbers, thriller that captures both sides of nature, good and evil. If you don't see this in theaters, you are truly missing out on what will be one of the best movies of 2012.
