Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Grey -- a wilderness survival movie about oil workers who live through a plane crash in the frozen wild and must avoid being devoured by wolves -- has very strong violence, including death, gore, and blood, plus wolf attacks and a scary plane crash sequence. Though it's an action/adventure movie, it's very much geared for adults. Language is strong, with multiple uses of "f--k" and "s--t," as well as other terms. Sexual innuendo pops up in the men's conversations, though there's no other sex or nudity. And there's some drinking and minor smoking.

Sexual Content

Lots of sexual innuendo in the men's conversations. The main character has flashbacks to lying in bed with a woman (though they're not naked).


Many characters die; there's lots of blood and some gore. Wolves attack people, and people shoot wolves. There's a huge, scary plane crash shown from inside the plane, followed by the wreckage and gory dead bodies. The main character contemplates suicide in an early scene. There's a brief, frightening dream sequence. People engage in a barroom brawl in an early scene. A character drowns. A character severs the head of a dead wolf and hurls it into the woods.


Very strong language includes very frequent use of "f--k," "s--t," and "a--hole," as well as "bitch," "fag," "nuts," "d--k," "hell," "Jesus Christ" (as an exclamation), "goddamn," and "prick."

Social Behavior

The men learn to overcome their false pride and arrogance and to work together. They have major problems to solve, and they continue to press forward, even if, as often as not, they fail.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters are seen drinking in an early barroom scene. The plane crash survivors drink whatever bottles of alcohol that didn't break in the crash. Some characters are seen smoking. Brief flashbacks to the main character's father, who's said to have had a drinking problem.
