Renowned actor Liam Neeson recently starred in a movie called The Grey that tells the story of a team of oil drillers in Alaska that survived a plane crash but must now survive the blood thirsty wolves before help finds them. The film has not been well received among environmentalists as they claim it is a false depiction of wolves.
The beasts that fall into the role of villain for the film are described as “rogue wolves,” a term that does not apply to the real-life animals. Contrary to what the movie shows, since gray wolves have been reintroduced to Yellowstone Park, the elk herds that had been foraging in the area and diminishing certain plant life have been curbed with the wolves’ hunting patterns, which don’t include human beings.
Not all reviews are concerned with the veracity of the wolves’ depiction though. In a review by the Rolling Stone, The Grey is complimented on its exciting portrayal of man vs. nature with Neeson playing the heroic survivalist who conquers nature by beating the killer wolves.
