After their plane crashes in Alaska, six oil workers are led by a skilled huntsman to survival, but a pack of merciless wolves haunts their every step.
In order to prepare for his role, Liam Neeson reportedly ate wolf jerky.
A job at the end of the world. A salaried killer for a big petroleum company. I don't know why I did half the things I've done, but I know this is where I belong, surrounded by my own. Ex-cons, fugitives, drifters, assholes. Men unfit for mankind.
Unfortunately, planes are far more valuable than people. Whatever the reason that oil workers might not have been missed, their plane would have been (by its owners and the insurers) and a search for it would have been undertaken within HOURS of it not arriving at its destination. Additionally all US aircraft are required to have and maintain ELT (emergency location transmitters) which would help find the plane if it is lost. While this device might destroyed in the crash, this happens very few times when a plane has an accident in manner depicted in the film.
There's a scene after the end credits.
