“The Gray Man holds the energetic, over-the-top, explosive action from the Russo Brothers, which should be enough to entertain the vast majority of the audience throughout the admittedly generic, predictable screenplay. Excessive camera movement occasionally sabotages the fantastic fight choreography, but nothing that lasts too long.
Regardless of the valuable technical aspects, the success of this movie is inherently connected to the superb performances from a cast packed with chemistry. Ryan Gosling demonstrates that he knows how to play an action protagonist, Chris Evans clearly has tons of fun playing a “bad guy” full of personality, Ana de Armas captivates as the sidekick badass, while Jessica Henwick is underused – the actress has done more than enough in her career to portray bigger roles.
See it in the theater, if possible.”
Well at least this latest Netflix effort gives us some eye candy in the form of the annoyingly ageless Ryan Gosling and a slightly hammy Chris Evans, but the rest of it is derivative even by their standards. We start with a young man being released from prison by “Fitzroy” (Tommy Lee Jones) so he can join an elite CIA hit squad. Named “Six” (Gosling), his first mission is straight out of the “Mechanic” (2011) only it’s an erstwhile colleague that he is sent to eradicate. A task that proves remarkably simple but is accomplished not before, luckily for us, he is given a micro chip that illustrates his new boss “Carmichael” (an underwhelming Regé-Jean Page) is about as crooked as the day is long. There now ensues a series of long “John Wick” style combat scenes as try as this hugely well equipped CIA operation does, it simply cannot capture “Six”. Desperate times call for desperate measures so “Hansen” (Evans) is drafted in to finally do the business by kidnapping the easily accessible niece of the now retired TLJ, and using her as leverage he tries a different tack. Wholesale slaughter follows and along the way some lovely buildings in Prague and Croatia become neat piles of rubble; the local citizens are dropping like flies sending those in the CIA PR department into spasms… Well you get the gist. The always over-rated Ana de Armas sports quite a colourful suit at the start, but as usual her contributions are pretty unimpressive; TLJ is nowhere near his best and the thing lurches on towards a really inevitable conclusion that stretched out the thinnest of plots and showed a really disconcerting image of a CIA completely out of control, running rampage – and that scenario isn’t remotely plausible. There is plenty of car-chasing, gunfights and pyrotechnic displays but that’s nowhere near enough to compensate for a pretty unremarkable script and an amalgam of stories we have seen done better elsewhere, many times before. That said, if you get a chance to see it during it’s limited cinema run then I’d give it a go. On television this is just subscription fodder with A-list cows that you will instantly forget.
The Russo Brothers’ Adaptation Of Gray Man Novel Is All About Merciless Action And Weak Story.
The Gray Man (2022) : Movie Review –
The Avengers director duo, Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, have teamed up for an action drama with Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, and Dhanush. What we expect from the trailer is an action-packed ride, and nothing else. Netflix has already done it last year with Red Notice, which broke records on OTT viewing. Now, with the same aim, the Russo Bros have tried their version of a spy-action-drama with a basic old plot and a lot of action. The duo deliver some high-octane action sequences to make fans happy, but the film doesn’t know anything better about the storyline. The old cliches bore you despite a short runtime, with action sequences working as the saving grace.
The film follows the hunt for the CIA’s most skilled mercenary known as Court Gentry, aka Sierra Six (Ryan Gosling), who has accidentally uncovered dark secrets of the agency. He becomes a primary target and is hunted around the world by a psychopathic former colleague, Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), and international assassins. Another CIA agent, Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas), accompanies Six just to save her reputation, while Lloyd calls upon a sexy Tamil friend, Avik (Dhanush), a merciless killer. The cat and mouse game between Lloyd and Six forms the crux of the rest of the story. While following a cliched plot, The Gray Man tries no variety at all, which hurts. The screenplay seems pacy due to back-to-back chase sequences and action stunts, but lacks interesting conflicts.
Performance-wise, Ryan Gosling as Sierra Six is decent. Frankly, this isn’t an acting-driven film, but still, the actors try to add something extra of their own, which is noticeable. Six’s character is quite prominent because of Ryan’s physics and emotional quotient. Chris Evans’ gruesomeness as Lloyd and his never-care-for-anyone attitude with humour packs a good punch. However, the basic points like reliability and temperament are missing from his character. The female forces, Ana De Armas, Julia Butters and Alfre Woodard, have done well with their limited screen space, but they do play important roles in the film. Indian actor Dhanush has like a 10-minute role, and it’s all about merciless and bloodshed action. Yes, he has his heart in the right place, which will surely please his die-hard fans.
The technical aspects of The Gray Man are below par. Except for brilliant cinematography, the other technical aspects fail to leave a mark. Stephen F. Windon’s camerawork may not be that great, but look out for those action scenes. The way he pans and shifts the camera in the darkness is indeed praiseworthy. The editing by Jeff Groth and Pietro Scalia has had a few problems coming continuously right from the beginning. It’s an action-packed film alright; that’s some extra boost for sure, but the background score doesn’t grow as it should have been. The action stunts are enjoyable, though.
The Russo Brothers have adopted the novel with no extra features, which makes things very corny. Also, their intention to start a franchise based upon a novel seems interesting. The reputation of the Avengers films has put tremendous pressure on Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, and I guess that’s why anything they make looks underwhelming. Of course, not every film they make can be that big and marvellous, so it’s okay to look for a different view through different perspectives. The Gray Man takes you on an action-packed ride filled with out-and-out merciless fight scenes and bloodshed, despite the weak story at the centre. So overall, it’s a watchable affair for your eyes if you don’t mind not putting extra strain on your brain.
RATING – 5/10*
An Impossible Bond is Bourne…
A suicide squad recruiter makes the call, you’re out of jail but you know they’ll let you fall, information is passed on, now it’s time to make a run, as from the shadows, mercenaries, start to trawl.
A full blown, in your face, aggressive, violent, wild embrace, whose editing is a bit suspect, not that original, but has effect; you’ve seen it several times before, not sure it leaves you wanting more, some stunts are quite over the top, usually against a great backdrop – and apart from Captain America, everybody else plays themselves.
