Lowdown: Increasingly believable tough guy Liam Neeson re-teams with hi "A-Team" director Joe Carnahan for this gritty, spare actioner about a group of plane crash survivors stranded in the Alaskan wild.
Grade: B+. It looks reminiscent of "The Edge" and other survivalist films, but Carnahan knows how to bring out the macho more than most action directors, and Neeson is on a hot streak of late , starring in such tight, straightforward thrillers as "Taken" and "Unknown."
Release date: January 27, 2012
