In the midst of my temporary sabbatical and then getting up to speed with several titles that flew under my radar, I didn't notice 6 Underground had already dropped on Netflix. Given it was a big-budget production ($150 million, not very cheap!) and the fact it was directed by Michael Bay, I expected way more advertisement for it. Then again the streaming giant was most likely busy pushing the Oscars game for The Irishman and didn't give much thought; not that it did any good since that 3 hour marathon of a film didn't win anything. Any who, I had a chance to check out the ludicrously over-the-top action flick and in some ways, 6 Underground feels like a callback to some of Michael Bay's earlier films that featured his main staples. Incoherent action set pieces? Check. Baffling plot? Check. Gratuitous violence? Check. Laughable writing? Check. At this point, you're probably asking why bother reviewing if I know what to expect, and whether if this is actually a good thing or bad? When it comes to Bay's films, you don't really need high standards or an articulate level of understanding of what's happening. At this point, even Bay acknowledges that his films are simply an excuse to watch stuff blow up so why fight it. The question of whether you'll like it or not depends entirely on how much you enjoyed Bay's earlier films like Bad Boys, Armageddon or (shudders) Pearl Harbor, and if you actually care for a plot. 6 Underground embodies classic Michael Bay and for better or worse, he gives what the masses want. For the most part, 6 Underground at least deserves a look.
