An unruly group of oil-rig roughnecks when their plane crashes into the remote Alaskan wilderness. Battling mortal injuries and merciless weather, the survivors have only a few days to escape the icy elements and a vicious pack of rogue wolves on the hunt before their time runs out.
Action Thriller Horror - This Liam Neeson starrer is more of a drama than an action film, so
those looking for something along the lines of Taken and
Unknown will be disappointed. However, fans of the star
should be pleased with this big showcase. Violence and constant
language make the film much too intense for children.
PROFANITY: Well over 30 F-words; over 30 S-words; 4 GD's; a number of ohters. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Bloody wolf attacks. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: Wolf fights. COMEDY: Some comic lines.

The story begins at a refinery in Alaska, where crude oil is broken into various elements for commercial use. Workers endure grueling five-week shifts 24/7, then have about two weeks off for vacation. One group of men heading back home encounter a brutal storm, causing the plane to crash in the Alaskan tundra. All on board are killed except for eight survivors who head south toward civilization, pursued by a pack of mysterious, almost mystical wolves practically prehistoric in their size and ferocity.
