The Russo Brothers’ The Gray Man Is Getting Mixed Reviews


The Russo Brothers’ next film, The Gray Man, is going to be released on Netflix very soon, but it’s already getting mixed reviews.

The movie stars Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas and Regé-Jean Page to name but a few of the fantastic actors in the movie.

However, it seems as though the critics aren’t in love with this new Netflix movie from the Russo Brothers.

It’s rather odd to see, but ever since they left the MCU and started working on their own projects, the Russo Brothers have been struggling to really get the critics on their side.

Their last movie, Cherry did not perform well with either the critics or audiences.

It seems as though critics are just as unimpressed by The Gray Man.

For instance, David Ehrlich of IndieWire wasn’t happy with the Russo brothers’ latest outing.

He actually said that the movie nearly made him nostalgic for Red Notice, another Netflix action film that was pretty poorly received by critics.

Another critic that really didn’t care for the movie was Kyle Buchanan, a film columnist for The New York Times, who said that the film was among Netflix’s worst projects.

However, there were some critics who thought that the movie was OK.

Matt Neglia of Next Best Picture said that it wasn’t as good as the likes of the Mission: Impossible or John Wick movies, but he added that it did its due service as a popcorn movie.

Germain Lussier of Gizmodo added that he thought The Gray Man to be a greatly entertaining blend of some of the best action-thriller franchises in history.

So, it seems as though the verdict on the movie is mixed.

However, those who ‘enjoyed’ the movie, did state that it wasn’t the best action film ever made.
