After a harrowing plane crash a group of men (lead by Liam Neeson) is stranded in the middle of a frozen wasteland. They struggle to survive against extreme weather, physical injuries and a pack of wolves. The action is swift and jarring, without being too graphic. Unlike what you’d expect, the tension actually slows as the film progresses. Too much time is spent creating sympathetic characters, when all we care about is who’s next to die and how. Still, it’s thoroughly involving and damn suspenseful.
GAY ANGLE: One pejorative use of the word “fag” and he’s the first to die!
Jerry Williams reviewed movies for WTVR-TV for 14 years and for Style Weekly for 10 years. When he launched his own website in 1998 at TVJerry.com, he took his reviews to the Internet. Through those hundreds of reviews, Jerry kept his sexual orientation muted. So, he's excited to be adding "gay angles" to his postings for GayRVA.com.
