The plot has Reynolds leading a team of vigilantes who have faked their deaths in order to form an elite squad and take down bad guys. Yep, it’s basically a canvas for a good looking cast to shoot stuff up and dodge Bay’s explosions, which sounds just fine with me. Call me a sucker for Bay’s action films, particularly ones not involving robots (although I still think Transformers 1 and 2 are decent).
This looks like it could be a lot of fun, and that giant magnet scene looks to be well worth the price of entry – which is a button press on Netflix. This film reunites Reynolds with Deadpool and Life screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who have proven themselves creative with infusing fun concepts into action sequences.
6 Underground, also starring Mélanie Laurent, Dave Franco, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Adria Arjona, Corey Hawkins, and Ben Hardy, explodes onto Netflix on December 13.
Official synopsis for 6 Underground:
What’s the best part of being dead?
It isn’t escaping your boss, your ex, or even erasing your criminal record.
The best part about being dead…is the freedom.
The freedom to fight the injustice and evil that lurk in our world without anyone or anything to slow you down or tell you “no.”
6 Underground introduces a new kind of action hero. Six individuals from all around the globe, each the very best at what they do, have been chosen not only for their skill, but for a unique desire to delete their pasts to change the future. The team is brought together by an enigmatic leader (Ryan Reynolds), whose sole mission in life is to ensure that, while he and his fellow operatives will never be remembered, their actions damn sure will.
