A Review of the Gray Man
In the beginning of the film, we are introduced to Six, played by Gosling, who is a black ops agent who was recruited into the Sierra Program by CIA Agent Fitzroy, played by Billy Bob Thornton. After 18 years, Carmichael and Suzanne (Jessica Henwick) are in charge of the program, and they assign Six the mission of eliminating a man whose name is Dining Car.
As Six prepares to embark on his assignment, he learns that he has been tasked with eliminating another participant in the Sierra program named Four. Six ends up killing Four, but before he does so, Four gives Six a necklace with a data card on it that demonstrates Carmichael’s unreliability. Six then wears the necklace.
Six sends the card to Margaret Cahill (Alfre Woodard), a former bureau chief, who tells him that Carmichael uses agents of the CIA as his hit squad and that he is also doing things that are way above his paygrade, which means that there is probably someone in the upper levels of the agency helping him out. Six then sends the card back to Carmichael, who tells Six that he uses agents of the CIA as his hit squad.
It has come to light that as soon as Carmichael realized that Four was in possession of the evidence, he tasked Six with eliminating him. However, now that Six is the one who possesses the proof, Carmichael dispatches a psychotic mercenary named Lloyd Hansen (Evans) to track Six down.
Hansen kidnaps Claire, Fitzroy’s niece, played by Julia Butters, in order to force Fitzroy to reveal the whereabouts of Six. However, Six also holds a special place in his heart for Claire because of the role he played in her upbringing. While Six is attempting to reach the location where Hansen has hidden Claire, Hansen continues to send men after Six in an effort to seize control of the drive.
Dani Armas, a CIA ally, provides assistance to Six in their fight against the forces that Hansen has dispatched. However, when a man who goes by the name Avik San (Dhanush) comes after them, they are unable to beat him off and end up getting injured in the process. Avik San then takes the disk and brings it to Hansen.
Avik finds that Hansen is trying to kill him and is holding a girl (Claire) prisoner before Six and Dani detonate the bomb that they have planted in the mansion where Hansen’s men are hiding out. As a result, Avik goes through an awakening, at which point he hands up the drive to Dani, along with Six, when they arrive to save Claire. In the meantime, Hansen makes an effort to coax Fitzroy and Claire into leaving the house. Fitzroy, though, takes a bullet for Six and Claire and gives his life so that they might escape.
Six and Hansen engage in combat with one another at the climactic showdown of the movie. In the nick of time, just as Six was about to suffocate Hansen, Suzanne appeared, shot Hansen dead, and then shot Six in the leg. It has come to light that she aims to lay all of the blame on Hansen, excluding both herself and Carmiachel from the situation.
She gets in the car with Claire and takes her with them so that the CIA can look after her. Carmichael is able to stop the drive from working, and the government accepts Suzanne’s explanation. In the end, however, Six is able to evade capture and free Claire. This occurs right before he is scheduled to be sent to jail. And with that, the movie is over.
A Response of the Gray Man
The Gray Man received largely unfavorable reviews, despite the fact that it is claimed to have had a budget of $200 million and is Netflix’s most costly film to date. Based on 153 reviews, the rating for the movie on the website that aggregates reviews, Rotten Tomatoes, is currently at a score of 50 percent. The vast majority of critics agree that if you go into this movie with low expectations, you will end up having a positive experience with it.
The most fascinating aspect of the reviews is the way in which various reviewers have compared the film to a medley or a collage consisting of scenes from other action films. The critique that the movie is a muddle, with first-rate action moments that are not backed by a reasonable storyline, is strengthened by this new information.
The performance given by Chris Evans is singled out as one of the most notable aspects by critics, who laud it as great and spectacular respectively. Although a number of critics maintain that even Evans’s stellar performance was not enough to redeem the film, some contend that his performance is the only aspect of the film that makes it worthwhile to watch.
