Audience Reviews for The Gray Man
Although Patrick Bauchau does a good job being chilling and mysterious. But that's all there is to look forward to this film. Jack Conley is boring with his really wooden act showing no emotion except for being dead serious. The script was well put together, voice overs are a little lazy. The cast is alright, the background cast, can't act. Subplot with Jack Conley slowed the movie down a lot. It's weaknesses mostly come from narrations, subplots, and background characters, such as the coroner checking out the body. It's strength really came from Patrick Bauchau who can really sell his lines. As for the disturbing moments, leave it to the lead to send any chills down your back, even his voice overs seem eerie.
Unlike the trend of real serial killer movies (ie BTK, Ed Gein, Gacy, et al) this one is not only a mature, serious work it is also surprisingly (and thankfully) restrained in its approach to the material since Albert Fish was a child molester/cannibal. But understand this is not a horror movie or a thriller; it's more of a psychological drama about the last few years of this sick individual and the cop who is determined to arrest him.
The Gray Man folows the story of what some believe to be one of the most insane and sick killers of the 20th century Albert Fish who from the outside looked like anyones kindly old grandfather but inside was a very disturbed man and this film gives pretty good insight into that mind and also his kidnapping and killing of alittle girl by the name of Grace Budd and how his own family reacts to his arrest and sentencing. One of the better movies ive seen come out about a real life serial killer well acted and directed anyone that is into these kinda movies should see this one as i highly recommend it.
