The Russo Brothers Continue Delivering Schlock Since Avengers

$200 million for a 3 out of 5 rated film that drew only $249,462 at the box office before streaming. Yeah, I think the Russo brothers once again blow smoke up our **** trying to deliver another non-superhero blockbuster. The Gray Man is formula film on steroids, complete with unrealistic action without the need of computer-generated everything, dialogue that is no where near real world interactive speech and Chris Evans who looks like Hitler during his barbershop quartet days. I can count on my watch the minutes left before Disney sends over the acquisition papers to Netflix. You will watch The Gray Man when you have watched all others available and you're tired of watching reruns.

way too violent

way too violent for pre-teens and young teens, esp a scene of a father drowning his young son and another scene with repeated knife stabbings. Am glad our son fell asleep before it got too hectic.
