Synopsis: In Alaska, an oil drilling team struggle to survive after a plane crash strands them in the wild. Hunting the humans are a pack of wolves who see them as intruders.
Thoughts: What reads like a run-of-the-mill man vs. nature movie is given a bit of a bump with the presence of Neeson and director Joe Carnahan’s trademark visual style. While Neeson has of late been embracing his successful Harrison Ford-esque resurgence as an action star, he’s does know how to pick decent potboiler movies (Taken, Unknown, etc). I’ve heard good buzz on this and seeing a movie in a setting colder than our precious MN is always a selling point. We shall see on January 27 when this is released.
