5. The Gray Man
Film, Action, Adventure, Thriller
A convict is approached in prison by a member of a secret vigilante agency.
“Do our dirty work, and you’ll walk free”. A tempting offer. In fact, so tempting he can’t refuse it.
And so CR ‘6’ is born. But when an important ‘hit’ goes wrong, a bounty is put on 6’s head, attracting the most skilled assassins in the game to take him out.
This film is packed with excitement, adventure, and really fast cars. Ryan Gosling radiates charm and charisma, and Chris Evans as the loose canon hit man gives us a performance far from his Captain America days.
A perfect watch for anyone who loves action, intrigue and a really well-fitting suit.

This is easily one of the most chilling, twisted and fascinating documentaries Netflix has to offer.
