'The Gray Man' Review: More of Netflix's Soulless, Sexless, CGI'd Muzak


Netflix’s $200 million Gray Man is the Muzak of action films: pure background noise as you catch up on emails.

My main takeaway after sitting through 130 minutes of this second-rate CGI is that directors Anthony and Joe Russo, the two guys responsible for four of the highest-grossing movies of all time — Captain America: Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame — have no interest in using their box office clout to step out from under formulaic, corporate movie-making.

If anything, The Gray Man is a leap backward for the Russo boys, something so impersonal, rote, and uninspired that it feels like an over-produced direct-to-video release.
