liked it but didn't particularly like it. just learnt a lot about wolves and a little bit about alaska. basically, if your plane ever crashes there, pray that you die in the crash.

Ashdoc's review---


Liam Neeson is a trained killer of grey wolves ; its his job in Alaska to protect humans by killing the grey wolves that inhabit the snowbound part of the North American continent . He's an authority on grey wolves ; he knows their territorial habits , their methods of stalking their prey and can smell their scent from a mile away . All of which is very good---for his knowledge is going to come handy very soon.....

......Because his plane carrying him and others back to the American mainland crashes somewhere presumably in the northern part of Canada in the middle of nowhere with only grey wolves for company.....

The crash kills the majority of the passengers and the entire crew and leaves only 7 of them alive---all males , not a single woman.....

And cut off from civilization as they are , no one is going to come to rescue them---as the cliche goes , they have to survive against all odds......

And the odds stacked against them are truely terrifying---not only do they have to battle the sub zero degrees cold , but also many of them are wounded . And the blood from their wounds attracts killers from the icy wastes---the grey wolves , who else.....

The director creates a world of ice and snow and howling winds in a forbidding landscape where no food is available---and above all , he creates a world of impending doom and death as the survivors themselves are about to become food for the terrible grey wolves . And the wolves are rentless---one by one they begin to pick and kill the survivors . As night approaches , one can see their eyes gleaming in the darkness , watching their prey .


Fire is the only thing that can halt them , and that too only temporarily---and the fuel for that too is in short supply.....
The remaining survivors do get a macabre revenge as they manage to kill a wolf and cook him for dinner---a dinner greeted by the bloodcurdling howls of the other wolves......

Liam realises that they must leave the territory of the grey wolves to escape a terrifying death and leads them towards a river , crossing tons of obstacles along the way . But the more wounded among them slow down , and the grey wolves are ever ready to pounce on the stragglers.....

Grief stricken and driven to despair , Liam beseeches god to come to their rescue---and the non existence of god is proven !!! For no one comes to rescue then out of their living nightmare.....

So does any one survive to tell the tale of horror and death ??
Go and watch the movie for that.....
For I found it to be a decent watch , though a tragic one......
