First reviews Netflix top film ‘The Gray Man’: watch or skip?


The big movie The Gray Man will soon be released on Netflix. It is the first major production directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, of course known for Avengers: Endgame

The $200 million action thriller is based on the book of the same name by author Mark Greaney and stars Chris Evans, Ryan Gosling and Ana de Armas. You will also see Rege-Jean Page, Jessica Henwick, Billy Bob Thornton and Scott Haze.

First reactions online
As usual, the first reactions have now appeared on Twitter, based on press releases. These reactions are often only positive and not always an accurate reflection of the film.

Most reactions are now also applauded, including the text: “Super exciting action, huge scale and set pieces, solid, confident performances, consistent humor, just tons of fun.”

But also: “Almost made me nostalgic for Red Notice.” So that’s not a very positive thing, given that 2021’s Red Notice (37% on Rotten Tomatoes) hasn’t exactly been well-received. Despite huge ratings.

But it’s not all so positive. The comment below makes quite a bit of mincemeat of the film. So we have to wait and see for the first reviews, which probably won’t be long in coming.
