When the CIA's top asset -- his identity known to no one -- uncovers agency secrets, he triggers a global hunt by assassins set loose by his ex-colleague.

The Gray Man, based on the book 
by Mark Greaney, is action-packed from start to finish in typical Russo fashion. Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling were just the frostings on the exploding cake.

The storyline is full of action movie clichés and predictable but it's still a lot of fun! Chris Evans' character isn't deep... just an over-the-top bad-guy psychopath. But they don't try to make him a serious character evidenced by the porn-stache. 

My husband and I were entertained and glad we watched. There are 12 Gray Man books so this could be the start of a franchise. I'm there for it like Bourne and Jack Reacher.

If you enjoy blow'em-up movies with outrageous car chases then you want to see this one.

My husband and I give it 4 "Gray" Sheep
