6. The Gray Man

The Gray Man is one of the most expensive and popular Netflix movies so far. It ranks No. 5 on the list of the all-time Netflix Top 10. It has an incredible cast, awesome action sequences, and great performances. The story is a little bit lacking, but the cast, action, and high stakes help make up for it.

The Gray Man is based on the novel of the same name by Mark Greaney. There are 12 novels in the series, so there’s so much potential here for Netflix. The movie tells the story of Sierra Six (Ryan Gosling), who is on the run from an ex-CIA agent, played by Chris Evans, set on revenge. Let’s just say there’s a lot more going on than things seem.

It sounds like The Gray Man 2 is already in development on Netflix! We can’t wait to see what happens with this story. I don’t want to speak too soon, but it has all the makings of a new Netflix action franchise.
