6 Underground – Intense Netflix action!

December is a month for romantic movies, it is a month for boring movies, and for magical movies. But, in the midst of a mixture of boring and romantic comes Netflix with an intense action movie starring Ryan Reynolds named 6 Underground. If you need an adrenaline shot, this movie might do the job!

Whenever I see Ryan Reynolds, my expectations get higher. I like him in most of his roles, and even though I didn’t become an immediate fan of Deadpool, he still performed well in the role. And if we consider romantic movies, I actually love the movie The Proposal in which Ryan Reynolds is forced to fake an engagement to the book editor played by Sandra Bullock. However, I normally watch action instead of romantic movies, so when Netflix introduced me to 6 Underground, I knew that this is a movie for me to stream on Netflix.

6 Underground on Netflix

6 Underground is yet an example of a movie that could have ended up in the cinema, but instead, we get it directly through the streaming platform of Netflix. As a result, this movie can now be streamed worldwide in every single Netflix country. This means, you don’t have to change to German Netflix to watch it, neither do you need access to American Netflix. All you need is a Netflix subscription. Visit Netflix wherever you might be in the world and you will be able to stream 6 Underground immediately.

But, a question that might be more interesting is whether or not 6 Underground is worth the time?

6 Underground review

Is 6 Underground worth two hours of your life?

6 Underground is a Michael Bay movie. This is a name you might recognize considering that he has been in the movie business for a long time, and he has directed a big number of blockbusters. And one of the biggest characteristics of Michael Bay is loads of action, special effects, and a high pace. What has he directed before? Well, he is well known for movies such as Armageddon, several Transformers movies, The Island, and he has also been involved in productions such as the Jack Ryan series from Amazon, and much more.

In 6 Underground, we meet Ryan Reynolds and his team of 5 people. They are considered dead by the world, and that is what makes them so hard to track and discover. They take righteousness into their own hands and hunt down bad-guys who are protected by diplomacy and other matters. Of course, this wouldn’t work well in the real world (who are they to consider who is good and bad?!), but in the movie concept, I like the presumptions of the plot. And yes, here they have a real dictator who the world cannot touch. However, the 6 Underground team is capable and that is the task we follow throughout the movie.

On the team, we meet Corey Hawkins, a man you might remember from the final season of 24, and also from The Walking Dead. Together they work, and this movie will give you action and adrenaline from the first moment on. However, I was actually quite bored watching the movie. It doesn’t help it that Michael Bay directed the movie, Ryan Reynolds isn’t capable of helping the movie either.

Everything is stretched to the limit, not only the action scenes and the car hunts but also the visuals. We can see Ryan Reynolds carrying an eyeball in his hand, blood is going in all directions, the stunts are crazy, the violence is even crazier, and this is somewhere between a serious and a hilarious action movie. It has potential, but somehow, it didn’t manage to live up to its potential and my expectations. I cannot really tell why, but this turned into a quite boring experience for me, and in the end, I was happy to finish it all.

We are human beings after all…

For the team selected by Ryan Reynolds, it is important to know nothing about one another. They are allowed to have sex, but there shouldn’t be real feelings. They shouldn’t know each other’s names, and thus the distance is important. But, it is somehow nice to see that even though they are crazy, they are still human beings. As a result, they long for connections and they are not capable of leaving one another behind (even though the clear message of Ryan Reynolds is to leave anyone behind when needed). These human feelings make the characters a bit more credible, but in the midst of blood pumping from someone’s arm, a way too long car hunt in the first 15 minutes of the movie, and much more – this movie feels like wasted potential to me.

6 Underground — Final Judgment

You can watch 6 Underground on Netflix and have a great time. After all, it is included with your subscription, which means that you will not have to spend any extra money to watch it. The only thing you might waste is your precious time, but if you don’t like it, just turn it off and do something else. However, if you have the Sheldon Cooper complex (which I have), meaning that you have to finish what you start, then at least use some fast forward button to see how the story ends before you go to do something else.

Have you seen 6 Underground? How did you feel about the movie? To me, it was a waste of time. But, I know that some people like it. At IMDb, it currently has a 6,1/10 score. This is a fairly low score, but some people for sure enjoyed it. Write a comment and let me know what you think of the movie.

Do you have some other recommendations for those looking for something to stream on Netflix in the coming months? Last year, we were given Birdbox on Netflix before Christmas. That was a way better movie than 6 Underground. Of course, it is hard to compare such movies, but I would rather watch Birdbox again than 6 Underground, that is for sure!

Is Deadpool on Netflix?

Deadpool is one of those superhero movies that has just enjoyed a take-off when it comes to popularity. The first movie was released in 2016, and it became the highest grossing R-rated movie produced every in history. 

The R-rating might scare some people away, but it isn’t really that violent or brutal. The R-rating probably came, not only because of the violence but because of the ugly language used by the characters in the movie. Ryan Reynolds is the hero of the movie playing the role of our hero Deadpool.

If you want to stream Deadpool on Netflix you are not likely to have any success. You cannot watch any of the Deadpool movies on Netflix so far, and considering that the first movie was released back in 2016, it has got to be some reason for this movie not to be on Netflix.

Deadpool is a Marvel movie, but Marvel sold the rights to the Deadpool story a while back, and thus FOX is the company behind the Deadpool movies. This means, even though Disney bought Marvel, they still do not have the power to decide about the future of Deadpool. As a consequence, it will most likely not appear on the upcoming Disney+ streaming service, or maybe it will if Fox comes to an agreement with Disney? But, you cannot stream Deadpool on Netflix as of now, and that gives me the feeling that it will not be added in the near future either.

It seems as if Disney will make a deal with Fox still – meaning, that Marvel and Disney will have the right to produce future films in both the Deadpool universe and in the X-Men universe). But, Disney will for sure not make an R-rated Deadpool movie, so what will happen then?

I might be wrong, and if Deadpool is added to Netflix, I will be quick to update this article and probably also write a new blog post about it.

Watch The Hitman’s Bodyguard on Netflix

The Hitman’s Bodyguard is a brilliant movie from 2017 starring Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson. It tells us a story very different from The Bodyguard, as Samuel L. Jackson plays the role of a crazy criminal that is supposed to be protected by Ryan Reynolds.

If you take a look at the trailer above you will quickly see the difference between The Hitman’s Bodyguard and The Bodyguard. But, listen to the music in the trailer. They are having fun with The Bodyguard, almost like making fun of the movie.

But, would you like to watch The Hitman’s Bodyguard on Netflix? It just came to HBO Now a few days ago, but imagine what, it has already been on Netflix for a couple of weeks. But, where? If you cannot find The Hitman’s Bodyguard in your Netflix region, then you better follow my instructions on how to get access to Canadian Netflix, because that is the region in which you can currently stream The Hitman’s Bodyguard and lots of other brilliant movies. I always say that Canadian Netflix is the best region for those who want to watch a Hollywood blockbuster, and yet again they proved that to be true.

December 2018: You can also watch the movie on Netflix in the UK!

The Hitmans Bodyguard on Netflix

Well, they haven’t come up with Wonder Woman yet (which can be seen on Australian Netflix and on Scandinavian Netflix), but still… it is by far the best region for those in love with new Hollywood movies.

If you wonder how to critics received the movie, then it has a 40% score on Rotten Tomatoes (from the critics). But, it doesn’t surprise me at all that the audience is much more positive, and therefore it has a 70% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. What do you think? What kind of percentage would you give the movie?

Watch The Hitman’s Bodyguard on Netflix first, and share your thoughts on the movie afterward!

Can I watch Selfless on Netflix?

Selfless on NetflixA few months ago I watched Selfless and found it to be a really interesting film. It tells the story of a dying very rich man who gets a fantastic opportunity; to continue his fantastic life in a new and young body. Since money is no problem he accepts the chance and starts his new life. Do you want to see it? Can you and I watch Selfless on Netflix?

Yes, it is possible to watch Selfless on Netflix at the moment. By the time you are reading this article the film may have been removed, or it may have been added to several new Netflix regions in addition, but at the time of writing this article you can watch Selfless on Netflix in Mexico, Panama, Argentina and Brazil. But, how can you watch Selfless in these regions when you are located somewhere completely different? You can read instructions on how you can watch Netflix in all different regions with only one Netflix subscription right here.

Is it worth changing your Netflix region to watch Selfless? I would absolutely say so. Ben Kingsley and Ryan Reynolds do a fantastic job playing the main character in the film and the story is simply great and I am a bit surprised that the film only has a 6,5 out of 10 score on IMDB. Anyway, a great film which I can warmly recommend. Take a look at the Selfless trailer right here if you want to know more about the film.

Have you seen the film? Did you like Selfless? Feel free to write a comment and share your thoughts.
