If we’re being honest, Netflix’s action films can be a bit dodgy – with the exception, of course, of those on this list. So calling The Gray Man the streamer’s best ever action original may sound like faint praise. Let us assure you, though: the Russo brothers’ bombastic spy-vs-spy thriller would be a highlight for any studio. Ryan Gosling is at his stoic best as Sierra Six (née Court Gentry, which is somehow even funnier), a convicted killer turned CIA assassin turned man who knows too much after he learns that – gasp! – the Agency is up to no good. Who woulda thunk? It’s over the top, but also dryly funny and some of the most fun you can possibly have from your couch.
