6. The Grey
In the same year as Unknown, Liam Neeson continued his trend of being a badass with The Grey. The plot is very simple, almost too simple. A group of men are in a plane crash in Alaska and forced to survive with the help of Neeson’s skilled character. The catch is that these men aren’t the only living things in these cold dark woods, there are wolves watching their every move. At first, this movie looked to most audiences and critics as a silly joke and nothing more. But, after its release it became one of Neeson’s coolest performances. Let’s just say that Liam Neeson versus wolves should be considered the eighth wonder of the world.
