I knew there was a post credit scene so I stayed and pa*d lots of attention
[spoiler]Ottway's head was indeed resting on the wolf, and you also could clearly see the wolf heavily breathing. I am guessing the wolf was dying and Ottway was still alive (?)[/spoiler]

anyway, where did the 2 wolves disappear when Pete fell in the river? Surely they should have attacked Ottway when he was running next to the river :confused:

Cineworld was packed this pm for this.

Liam Neeson was born to do this type of film, he was great!

It was a yomp in Alaska with wolves but surprisingly engaging and entertaining. Celini - I agree re the ending!

there is an app on the androids and Iphones called RunPee. Mainly for telling you which part of any movie you can go for a pee but it also indicates if there are any end of credits scenes. Could be useful for some of you. Me, I always stay to the end. So often, I find myself the last one out of the cinema and sometimes getting strange looks from the staff. Mostly, they seem to wait for me to get up then they start cleaning as if its some kind of protocol they have to follow.

I never thought this film would be a commercial success, I thought it was a little obscure...

Caught this on Sunday, a bit after Journey 2 (what a double bill that was).

I really enjoyed it. Neeson is such a badass. Definitely not one for the kids, though.

good man movie, despite some odd wolf behaviour and some even dodgier animatronics lol. I actually loved it, stupid violence and action and moody locations, as is the wont of men's movies.

Well I guess we arent going to get a Grey 2... or will we?? We are getting an improbable Taken 2 and Unknown 2, I believe, so why the hell not.

I don't know if you've heard of a show called "Is it a Good Idea to Microwave This?" Well, it's very popular on youtube, and was masterminded by a guy called Jon Paula. Paula is still very popular on youtube and presents a weekly movie review show. Admittedly he's not that good at reviewing but he encourages people to send in comments about films he's going to feature in future episodes. And my comment for "The Grey" got included in this week's episode! Skip to 2.56 to see it:

Member number 33 of the "100 free films in 2011" club. I saw 20, interestingly enough. My more realistic target was to see more free films than TheyCallMeMrGlass. I lost.

I went to see this movie because I am a Liam Neeson fan and because it had a similar theme to The Way Back, which I love, but sadly its not even close. I have mixed feelings about this but cinematography was outstanding and probably saved the film. It savaging and gruesome, I have to say I couldn't watch some of the scenes. 6/10

[spoiler]Kind off sad that they all died. Couldn't they at least save the guy who was carrying the wallets.[/spoiler]

Spectacularly entertaining! Loved it!
This is the movie I wish The Thing (2011) could've been.
