I don’t think there’s enough rum for me to enjoy that drivel or even watch the last 15-20 minutes I turned off fromI agree that this is a stupid, Commando-like, one-man-army shoot-em-up, but I also enjoyed it. Of course, I was deep into some wild turkey 101 by the time I started watching it.
Billy Bob Thornton: Billy plays Fitzroy, Six's handler and recruiter. I am not sure what it is about Billy but he has kind of lost my interests. I am not sure it is enough of a role for him to give his all in and he is kind of relegated to a back up player in this flick. Grade: C-
I didn't know he was in it. Now I'll have to watch it by default!
Preacher- great review for a really bad movie.
Tonight I started watching "Carter" on Netflix - it is actually worse than "The Gray Man" - bye bye Netflix.
"The Age of Adaline" was probably the only redeeming video value I received from Netflix for the July-August timeframe. Back to Prime, Freevee, and Peacock I go.
These over the top action/violence flicks have me sailing off into much calmer waters.
Mark Greaney wrote several Gray Man novels. If they make a dime off of this the rest will follow. Just like all those crappy comic book movies.I saw it the other night. Entertaining in a dumb way. Not as high a body count as John Wick if you like that, but he kills a lot of bad guys in creative ways. Built for a sequel as most of these type of things are.
This is fantasy but it's grounded a little more in reality than the John Wick movies which are total fantasy.
The only movie like this that I actually enjoyed was the one Scarlett whatzherface did several years ago, Lucy. That one seemed to have a je ne sais quoi that seemed about ten IQ points higher the typical shoot-em-up fare.
