New Ryan Gosling And Chris Evans Netflix Film Has Near-Perfect Score On Rotten Tomatoes

Ryan Gosling's new movie has been a smash hit since it landed on Netflix. Have a look at the trailer:

The Gray Man sees Gosling go up against Captain America himself Chris Evans in a lethal game of cat and mouse.

The blockbuster centres on CIA agent Court Gentry (Gosling), code name Sierra Six, who uncovers some dark secrets at the heart of his organisation.

Enter, Lloyd Hudson (Evans), a ruthless assassin who sets about putting an end to Gentry before he can spill the beans.

The star-studded movie was released last week, and so far has been met with rave reviews from fans.

So much so, that it has a near-perfect score of 90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, which is pretty good going indeed.

Praising the flick, one fan wrote: "A very well cast action film, lots of humour and exciting fight scenes. I really enjoyed it."

Another chipped in: "Tough outside, tender inside, lots of action, fighting, stunts, not without humour, slick and well-made. Basic tropes of the genres, though done right. The chemistry was understated, begging for a 2nd try."

"I thought it was a great movie, I think the budget was allocated, it became remarkable, the action was excellent, I hope for a sequel!!!" put a third.

While another added: "This movie should have been called "SIX IS THE NEW 007!!!" It is a great, great, ride with outstanding acting, direction and writing. Ryan Gosling hits the mark 100 percent."

The Gray Man cost a whopping $200 million, making it the most expensive film Netflix film ever.

And with the likes of Gosling, Evans and James Bond star Ana de Armas, as well as Billy Bob Thornton also starring, it's not hard to see why.

However, while fans seem to be bowled over, the same cannot be said for critics.

With a rating of just 50 percent on RT, some have had a few harsh words to say about it.

Rolling Stone's David Fear wrote of the movie: "The Gray Man wants to remind you of what an old-school dopamine dump these types of entertainments are, and it has what seems to be the necessary ingredients to do it. Which, to be honest, only makes you wish this was tighter, tauter, tougher, better."

The Financial Times' Danny Leigh added: "The Gray Man isn’t a bad movie, just one wilfully drained of substance or even dramatic tension."

While Barry Hertz from the Globe and Mail said: "It is a thriller made by people who know what great thrillers can do, but without the ability to make one themselves."

The Gray Man is available to watch on Netflix now.
