Is The Grey a pretty violent movie?

My wife won't see it if there is a lot of violence.

If it ran about 80 mins., The Grey could be a smartish man-against-the-elements thriller. Unfortunately it ambles in at nearly two hours, an arid expanse padded with sad stabs at characterization: the noble black man (Nonso Anozie), the book lover (Dermot Mulroney, unrecognizable behind Witness Protection spectacles) and the mouthy ex-con (Frank Grillo), whose endless grousing led one member of the preview audience to shout, “Hey, wolves—kill him.” Two-thirds of the way unto the movie, when just four men are left and the noose should be tightening, they engage in an extended conversations that would allow you not just a concession-stand break but time to leave the theater, drive home, microwave some popcorn and drive back without missing a relevantly scary thing.

Shot on location in northwestern British Columbia amidst 20-below-zero temperatures and 60-mph winds, the film's production put its cast through physical ordeals that translate into on-screen experiences too grimly downbeat to be classed as adventure, but which nonetheless remain viscerally thrilling from start to finish.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
