Review of The Grey

If you are looking for an all out, wolve versus man action thriller, this is not the movie for you. This movie is meant to tug at your emotions, teach you about love and death, as well as the Grey in between. The film draws you in, pulls you in and holds you. I am a huge fan of Liam Neeson, and he is a great narrator. His voice is what draws you in and grabs you, thrusting you into the theater seat. Overall, the movie is very enjoyable and worth watching. There is a scene after the credits which you should stay for as well.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED


If you would like a better completion or analysis of the movie, staying after the credits MAY give you that closure. The movie has a controversial ending where the viewer does not know if Liam Neeson dies or lives. This belief is based on if you have a positive or negative outlook on life and your own survival beliefs. I personally believe he was still alive, at least after the final confrontation. I have also had a theory that maybe the whole movie was a transition in Liam's mind? Maybe there was no plane crash. Maybe instead of his wife dying, it was actually him on the death bed. Maybe all the survivors were just different parts of Neeson's mind/personality/psyche slowly dying off during his slip into death. This is what I truly enjoyed about the movie. Each person could have their own interpretation of the movie without being wrong. I like thinking back on the movie, wondering about each different conclusion. I highly suggest checking it out.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who picked up that the film may be a metaphorical representation of Ottway's internal battles :D

At the end as I just sat there taking it all in and thinking about it, it was one of my first thoughts. I felt pretty smart lol
