THE GRAY MAN (2022) Review of Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans Netflix spy thriller – now with a clip



The Gray Man is a 2022 American spy thriller in which the CIA’s most skilled operative accidentally uncovers dark agency secrets. Hence, a psychopathic former colleague puts a bounty on his head, setting off a global manhunt by international assassins.

Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo [as The Russo Brothers] from a screenplay co-written by the latter with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, based on a novel by Mark Greaney.

The Netflix production stars Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jessica Henwick, Regé-Jean Page, Wagner Moura and Billy Bob Thornton.

Court Gentry aka, Sierra Six (Ryan Gosling) a highly skilled former CIA operative, was once the agency’s best merchant of death. After his escape from prison and recruitment by former handler Donald Fitzroy, Gentry is now on the run from the CIA with agent Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans) hot on his trail. Aided by Agent Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas), Hansen will stop at nothing to bring Gentry down…


“It’s hard to find somebody at Chris Evans’ level to step into a villain,” Joe Russo told Entertainment Weekly about casting the Marvel star. “It’s why you traditionally don’t get a Ryan Gosling versus Chris Evans movie. But he’s at a point where [playing the villain] is more entertaining to him than playing a hero, so we’re able to get two giant movie stars that face off against each other. They’re very complicated characters with competing agendas, and it’s a fight to the death.”

The Gray Man will be available for streaming on Netflix globally on July 22, 2022.
