Liam Neeson continues to cement his role as filmdom's favorite fiftysomething badass. Here, he's a troubled family man on an airplane full of oil workers that crashes in the remote Alaskan wilderness. The wounded survivors soon find themselves running, hiding and fending off the fangs of a hungry pack of wolves. It won't be on the Defenders of Wildlife's must-see list any time soon, but director Joe Carnahan (Smokin' Aces, The A-Team) knows how to construct a man's man's action movie—think Jaws as written by Jack London. ... No, that sounds too good. How about: Jaws 2 as written by Jack London's research assistant. 117 minutes R.
Times and listings are for Friday 8/17 through Thursday 8/23
