Fastening a shotgun shell to a stick does not work as well as depicted. The Mythbusters demonstrated that the human arm simply can't thrust the stick hard enough to set off the shell. See more »
A job at the end of the world. A salaried killer for a big petroleum company. I don't know why I did half the things I've done, but I know this is where I belong, surrounded by my own. Ex-cons, fugitives, drifters, assholes. Men unfit for mankind.

At first sight, this seems like the kind of movie to be panned by critics and audiences alike, being an action-survival film. When i was able to get into the special premiere showing, i will have to say, i would pay $15 to see this on the IMAX because the thrills, action and emotions running through this movie were as fast as the wolves.
Liam Neeson, who everyone is coming to know as the man from Taken, was phenomenal; Liam has always been a great and amazing actor, but this movie really shows that he can do something so "out there" that, it feels real watching it on the big screen. This movie, fueled by Ridley and Tony Scott's vision (they produced this fine film), has elements from both of the brothers' genre-takes such as Man on Fire, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down and Blade Runner, capturing the epic, awesome intensity and thrills that only masters can handle.
Even though they aren't characters, per say, they are a vital point in this movie and do a damn good job picking up and dragging the tension out (in a good way); the wolves. You'll have to see for yourself, because i was on the edge of my seat whenever they came on screen.
All in all, this movie was not only a feast for the eyes, but a getaway from all the regular Hollywood fair and blockbusters being poured out nonstop. A must see for anyone who like action/adventure, suspense/thrillers and dramas with great acting 9/10 Stars
