05.30.12Amazon Instant Liam Neeson and a group of dudes go down in a plane wreck somewhere in Alaska, where they proceed to be hunted by wolves while trying to get back to civilization. I'm a little torn on this. I liked it for the most part, but also had a few issues. I think the wolves looked kinda fake (they didn't actually look fake but the way that they were shot gave away that they were fake) and the flashbacks were eh (especially the one with the hair) and the ending... I felt a little robbed but I guess they had to end it somewhere. It also seemed, toward the end, that each scene was just listing off different ways to die in the wilderness. Perhaps if they had a few fewer survivors they wouldn't have had to stretch to get rid of them. I believed that the actors were cold, and liked Carnahan's restraint throughout most of the movie. It made the few times he embellished really stand out more (like Neeson during the plane crash and Dermot Mulroney's fall). I wish the wolf sound effects weren't so completely over the top though. Who knows, maybe that's what they're like. I don't think so, but who knows.

Anyway, decent movie, glad I saw it, but I probably like The Edge and Shoot to Kill more.
