The Russo Brothers’ new film was released on Netflix on Friday (22 July).
The film also features Bridgerton’s Regé-Jean Page, Billy Bob Thornton, and Ana de Armas.
The Gray Man has received mostly luke-warm reviews from critics. In a two-star write-up for The Independent, Clarisse Loughrey writes that the film “comes off as oddly limp and airless”.
Many viewers, however, have watched the film and come to a different conclusion.
“The Gray Man was actually dope. I definitely recommend it on Netflix,” one person said.
Another added: “Hmmm. Actually enjoyed The Gray Man. I wonder if it’s because the Russos were involved. It’s been a long minute since Netflix made a great action movie.”
“I actually liked The Gray Man lol. Just don’t analyse it too much,” wrote a third person.
Someone else wrote: “Gray Man was actually really good tbh. Just good old fashioned CIA antics sending s*** into a fan.”
“I can’t believe I’m firmly in the ‘The Gray Man is good, actually” camp,” said another fan of the film.
A sixth person wrote: “The Gray Man is actually a great action movie. Nothing complicated, just incredible action scenes and great chemistry between hero and villain.
“Would recommend for a fun movie night. I hope they make another one.”
The Gray Man is available to watch on Netflix.
