I was willing to despise the “gray man”, because who wouldn’t it be? It was directed by the Russo brothers, two men who seem desperately determined to transform the job of a film director from that of a skilled craftsman into that of an executive for a technology company. It’s available on Netflix, a lackluster company whose latest foray into big action movies is Red Notice, a slouchy Dwayne Johnson/Ryan Reynolds/Gal Gadot that everyone hated if they didn’t completely forget. And friends I trust had seen the Gray Man and were bored and angry. So, being sane, I was ready to watch this movie, hate it, and then make a fortune watching the page with a pretty cool job.
But then Ryan Gosling had to go and it all ended.
