Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.
Jean-Claude Van Damme,
In Alaska, a team of oil workers board a flight home; however, they cross a storm and the airplane crashes. Only seven workers survive in the wilderness and John Ottway, who is a huntsman that kills wolves to protect the workers, assumes leadership of the group. Shortly after they learn that they are surrounded by a pack of wolves and Ottway advises that they should seek protection in the woods. But while they walk through the heavy snow, they are chased and attacked by the carnivorous mammals. Written by

During the movie one of the men is said to be getting hallucinations from hypoxia (lack of oxygen). However, hypoxia does not cause hallucinations. 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.

Once again, another emotion-fishing desperation of a flick based on the vast perversion of reality involving our wolf friends to the north.
Very, very little about this fictional drama is true-to-life and even when wielding the power of distorted truth, the writers still couldn't find a way to keep this movie entertaining.
Boring, predictable, unsatisfying. I was expecting some form of plot twist or surprise ending to throw me off the track I had been riding safely on since the initial opening scene. I can't name one event in the entire movie that interrupted my boredom and caught me off guard.
Hollow story aside, even with a very mild grasp of true mother nature it is nevertheless quite obvious how much of an exploitation of wolves this fairy tale really is. One need only to have watched any of dozens of respectable documentaries in their lifetime (such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWmOtXSAr1M) to obtain a grasp of how the species thinks and operates. Reality is simply nothing like the exploitation that The Grey has provided.
I was excited to watch this yet found the movie both disrespectful of truth as well as my intellect and wouldn't even recommend it as a cheap rental. Simply embarrassing and fruitless unless you're hellbent on watching for the sake of viewing another Liam Neeson performance.
