The Gray Man [2022]

The Gray Man

The Gray Man proves that Netflix really wants an action franchise. And as decent as this one looks, it’s not the winning ticket.

In fact, if you consider the star-studded cast, you’ll be confident about having an entertaining action thriller. Sadly, it’s filled with lukewarm leftovers from far better films

Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Billy Bob Thornton. Need to say more? The plot is clichéd, but the Russo brothers deliver a film packed with action, charismatic actors, and beautiful locations. Even when there’s nothing new or spectacular in that action, it’s very well done and entertaining.

The whole movie is more and more and more: more explosions, more fireworks, more shooting, more bullets. The Russo’s didn’t care how preposterous this became. You only need to lift your eyes from the second screen whenever you hear an explosion.

Netflix is looking for a series that could replace James Bond or the Bourne movies. But for that to happen, people need to want to see to this one and the ones to come after, and I already know I don’t want to see the next one, unless we get shirtless Evans and Gosling.
