According to Liam Neeson's account, the temperatures were as low as -40 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees Fahrenheit) in Smithers, British Columbia, where the film was shot. The snow storms/scenes were actual prevailing weather conditions, and not a cinematic illusion produced with CGI (interview: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno: Episode #20.70 (2012)). The cast wore thermals under their costumes for additional protection. See more »
Ottway hunts wolves with a scoped Reminton 700 rifle, but is shown to have shotgun shells for ammunition. The shotgun rounds are shown early in the movie and he retrieves them from his gear when he finds his broken rifle after the plane crashes. They are then used to make "bang sticks" of sorts to defend wolf attacks. There is no reason for anyone to carry shotgun shells when the only firearm available is the Remington 700 (except to serve the dubious plot device of the "bang sticks") 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.

Surprised by all the poor ratings given apparently by a bunch of wildlife/wolf/survival experts! Guys, this is a Hollywood movie! Let me emphasize - a movie. All this analysis on how much a wolf weighs and how their behavior is incorrectly depicted... please stick to NatGeo or Discovery channel programs and stay away from fiction! Going by the logic and reviews, Spielberg's 1975 classic 'Jaws' should be given just a star or two as it has a highly inaccurate portrayal of sharks. But surprise surprise, it's 8+ on IMDb! Wow how did that happen?! I enjoy a movie for the entertainment value it provides. And if the film can hold my interest for about 90 minutes, I'd say it worked. The Grey definitely worked!
