The Gray Man Twitter Review: Dhanush performs better than lead actors in spy thriller
The Netflix original has been directed by Anthony and Joe Russo who are popular for action movies like Marvel Studios’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.
New Delhi: Dhanush, Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling starrer The Gray Man was released on Netflix on Friday. The Netflix original has been directed by Anthony and Joe Russo who are popular for action movies like Marvel Studios’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.
The spy thriller was in an attempt to take over charge from the franchises like Mission Impossible or The Bourne Identity having elaborate action sequences and A-list cast members. The synopsis of the film states, “Court Gentry (Ryan Gosling) is The Gray Man, an elite ex-CIA operative whose reputation has branded him a formidable killer for hire. Gentry, code-named Sierra Six, is yanked from a federal penitentiary by his handler, Donald Fitzroy (Billy Bob Thornton) for a covert overseas assignment. While on a dangerous mission in exotic Bangkok with Agent Dani Miranda (Ana de Armas), Gentry discovers that a rescue team dispatched to pull him out has been given orders to assassinate him. Now Sierra Six becomes hunted across the planet by the psychotic Lloyd Hansen (Chris Evans), a former CIA colleague who’ll stop at nothing to take him down.
With the release of the film, netizens took to social media to express their thoughts. Some appreciated the film and the overwhelming star cast. However, to some, the plot seemed to be weak.

My review of #TheGrayMan (the review is probably inflated as I was seeing @ChrisEvans after movie for Q&A & was excited!): Great action scenes, Chris shines as villain. Don’t expect too many jokes, not that kind of movie. If you like this cast you will like it and enjoy I think.

Here’s my review of the #TheGrayMan — a movie filled with cardboard character cutouts and Chris Evans doing everything he can to save this inexcusably dull thriller.https://t.co/MdICTND4cx

#TheGrayMan is next level cheesy, I can’t tell if they are being serious or not. Like if it was written by some 23 yr old frat guy who watched 3 spy movies and thought ” yeah I can do that”

The GrayMan Review :
Story wise the movie was great. Expected more of @dhanushkraja screen presence but its ok for his first time Hollywood debut. Would give an 8/10 for the movie for the hardwork they have put in this movie. Great job @Russo_Brothers 👏 #TheGrayMan pic.twitter.com/fr8J129ddl

#TheGrayMan Review 3.5/5. A good action movie. Loved the action sequences in Prague & Tram action sequences. @dhanushkraja role was small but performance 🔥🔥. Captain America @ChrisEvans has a crazy antagonist was different. Enjoy watching #TheGrayManOnNetflix pic.twitter.com/GPaotibkE5

#TheGrayMan KILLED IT. My heart was racing throughout the movie. #actionpacked @ChrisEvans and @RyanGosling fight scene felt like some epic Avenger battle.
And lastly i want to honour our sexy Tamil @dhanushkraja who I personally felt like being an Indian James Bond.

#TheGrayMan I really enjoyed watching Chris Evans play a villain. Ngl, the final fight scene with Ryan, kept thinking ‘but that’s Captain America, no way Ryan wins’ #TheGrayManOnNetflix
