Advantages: quite a good film for couples, keeps you on the edge of your seat
Disadvantages: quite grusome!
Liam Neeson is employed to shoot wolves that stray near the oil rig where he and his colleagues work. A plane full of the workers including Neeson crashes and only six of them survive the crash. If surviving a plane crash wasn't enough, they are then hunted by wolves. Neeson has an understanding of wolves and so takes leadership and tries to keep everyone alive.
*what did I think*
The film is quite gruesome in parts - I'll give you a clue - not everyone survives the wolf attacks. If you don't like blood and gore then I'd avoid this film. I liked it though and it does keep you on the edge of your seat. Their approach to the wolves seemed a bit inconsistent though - one minute they had weapons to fight them off and then later in the film they didn't - I think I'd have kept hold of a weapon at all times!
The plot is quite good and it shows the interesting relationships between the men who survive the crash and also those who are important to them - through storytelling and their dreams.
I struggle to find films that both me and my partner like and something like this usually fits the bill quite well.
Summary: worth watching
