The Gray Man Review: Russo Brothers Have Created a Relentless Action Movie That Leaves Little to No Time to Build The Thrill

We all need a spy tale every now and then to escape the thrill-deprived routine. Just like a few other genres, the tom and jerry chase transcends us to the world of Eutopia. They bring us a sheer feeling of adventure and we ourselves become a part of the chase. Be it James Bond or John Wick, or Netflix’s most recent The Grey Man. Such dramas have a different fan base altogether.

If you aren’t aware, the star-studded movie, The Grey Man, chronicles the chase of Gosling’s Sierra Six as he accidentally discovers the dark secrets of the agency. He becomes a global target and is chased around the world by the CIA’s former psychopathic agent Llylod Hansen aka Chris Evans. And guess who joins Six’s team? Dani Miranda aka Ana de Armas. Do look out for her as you watch the movie.

But do you think the Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans starer is worth watching? Here’s what the Critics got to say about it:

Do critics appreciate the star-studded movie, The Grey Man?

Sure, The Grey Man was Netflix’s most anticipated movie of the year. Sure it has some of the most enticing actors and is directed by none other than the Russo brothers. But most of the critics didn’t have such a high impression of the movie. While some of the tomatoers appreciated the movie. Most of the critics believe it had no plot development time.

“Whilst it may not be particularly innovative, The Gray Man offers plenty of exciting action, two game leads, and plenty of spectacle over substance. As long as you don’t expect too much, you’ll have fun with this.” Wrote a few appreciators of the show.” Netflix’s latest actioner has a wonderful one played by Chris Evans. In this spy tale, he plays such a delicious bad guy that he manages to make up for many of the mistakes on display in this big-budget adventure.” 

Forbes wrote, “While the instruments are all in place, the music never comes together, and the notes mostly fall flat. Despite genuine production values and impressive stunt work, the film never escapes the core notion of merely playacting a theoretical motion picture.”

“The Gray Man, is cacophonous on every level. It’s a bit like being trapped inside a first-person shooter challenge being played by a 12-year-old gaming prodigy – The Gray Man is undeniably entertaining,” says The Guardian.

In trying to set up all these different threads and characters from the very beginning, it makes this deceptively simple story feel far too bloated at times, writes Collider“Beyond these two endearing actors being able to gleefully chew the scenery, The Gray Man is mostly a collection of tired spy tropes, directed in a muddled and baffling way, that seemingly exists to set up what seems like will be a fairly unimaginative franchise.”
