George addresses a few major grievances viewers have with The Gray ManThe $200 million budget meant that the film was unable to realize its full potential. It appears that the bulk of the budget was used for actors rather than to improve the plot. Unfortunately, this is quite common in the action movie genre. George highlights the central storyline in The Gray Man, where the CIA ends up being the bad guy and the protagonist has to battle the law, has been done many, many times before. A movie’s overuse of plot does not necessarily make it bad. However, this movie clearly shows that very little attention was paid to major flaws. Six, for example, survives jumping from a plane, and then escapes handcuffs. Both of these events are not visible to the audience. However, the movie’s pitfalls do not end there. George stresses that The Gray Man features way, way too many drone shots, and when it appears a solution can be offered to Six’s dilemma, the movie continues to drag on without addressing the obvious.

Despite some serious oversights The Gray Man is no disappointment when it comes to action, as the 129 minutes of the film are filled with it. It is clear that the movie is great. It was always planned to have a sequel. The Gray Man ending sees Six narrowly escape his attackers. While Lloyd dies, it is clear that there are many villains out for Six and the follow-up will have ample time to address them. Even though not everyone is on board, The Gray ManIt continues to do fairly well on Netflix. Here’s to hoping for a sequel. The Gray Man 2 will learn from its mistakes next time around. Pitch Meetings will be available to discuss the failures if it does not.
