A survival thriller with teeth, this movie puts Liam Neeson in Alaska along with a bunch of wolves.

Neeson is the alpha male among a group of oil refinery workers who survive a plane crash in the wilderness, only to find themselves relentlessly hunted down by the pack of the ravenous animals as they try to make their way to safety.

The characters are sketchily drawn, but Neeson gives the film the muscular heft it needs and the snowbound setting is effectively chilling.

Be sure to watch to the very end of the credits for the final, hauntingly ambiguous shot.
