REVIEW: Wolf vs. man drama in ‘The Grey’ makes it best studio film in while“The Grey” yanked me upright in my seat. It is, even as melodramatic and sometimes implausible entertainment, the best studio movie in a long time. It follows the tradition of Jack London’s man vs. nature survival stories, where hope is as fragile as a campfire in a blizzard. Here seven Alaska oil field workers face bleak odds when their plane crashes far from civilization, and near the den of a ferocious wolf pack. The film is unusually hard, tense, cruel, intelligent and straightforward.
