6 UNDERGROUND (2019): The Things I Liked…

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Corey Hawkins and Mélanie Laurent, 6 Underground, the latest action / thriller from Michael Bay only kind of found its way after the first hour.

I say ‘found its way’ when what I really mean is, things became most fun to watch past the hour mark. Before then, I was simply left desperate for the character background detail of the six off-the-grid agents focused on eliminating notorious criminals. I was also eagerly waiting to be gripped by everything that was happening.

Eventually, some of the character backstory did come but it certainly wasn’t soon enough or executed in the most satisfying way. The good news is that I did finally stop wanting for things and just got engrossed in all the fun past the hour point; thanks to all the action sequences in Hong Kong, plus everything else that happens after.

Other notable highlights include the opening visuals at the very beginning . I’m quite the sucker for good opening visuals. I also really enjoyed the few seconds later on when Reynolds’s character speaks in a British accent. 

Overall, even with one, two or more fairly obvious continuation errors, luckily for me, I don’t find Bay’s movie to be a total waste of time but it definitely did need at least one more story draft.

Should you decide to watch it, maybe hold out for the scenes in Hong Kong, which start at around one hour into the movie.

Free Guy stars Ryan Reynolds as a bank teller who realises that he’s actually an NPC (Non Player Character) inside a brutal, open world video game.

Directed by Shawn Levy, additional key cast includes Jodie Comer, Taika Waititi, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Joe Keery…

First of all, surely Reynolds is the the busiest actor right now, no? Second, right away I like the Howrey / Reynolds dynamic – and I’m intrigued by the the Reynolds / Coma chemistry.

I don’t really play video games so I had to look up the meaning of NPC but the premise is interesting and I like Reynolds so I’m definitely watching.

Britne Oldford, Owen Burke, Aaron W Reed, Leah Procito, Jamaal Burcher and Kenneth Israel also star.

Free Guy Release Dates: July 1st, 2020 (UK); July 3rd, 2020 (US)…

Set in a world where people collect pocket monsters (Pokémon) to do battle, Justice Smith ( Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom (2018is a boy who meets an intelligent monster named Pikachu who wants to be a detective.

I personally know of Pikachu but I don’t know much about Pokemon. I’m mostly curious because I rather like Smith; even though I’ve only ever seen him in Jurassic World – Falling Kingdom.

DEADPOOL 2 (2018) New Trailer From Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin…

In Deadpool 2, Ryan Reynolds is back as what I’m sure is his most widely loved character; Deadpool, a.k.a Wade Wilson.

There’s more action, more comedy, more of that good and lovable titular wisecracking to be expected, starting with this fun tease of a trailer…

The intro to this trailer is good, of course but that action… that 10 seconds of beautiful action is just superb. I can’t wait to see it all fit into place .

Deadpool 2 Release Dates: June 1st, 2018 (US & UK)…

THE HITMAN’S BODYGUARD (2017): New Trailer From Ryan Reynolds, Salma Hayek, Samuel L. Jackson…

In The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Ryan Reynolds is the latter and Samuel L. Jackson, the former. The bodyguard and hitman are not quite getting along. Still they must learn to work together because one of them has to testify at the International Court of Justice…

I don’t know if Reynolds and Jackson have been in a movie together before, but I’m certainly a fan of their chemistry. I’m also getting something of a The Other Guys (2010) vibe – and I’m sure that’s a good thing.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard Release Dates: August 18th, 2017 (US & UK)…

Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds, Rebecca Ferguson and Hiroyuki Sanada, Life is the new Daniel Espinosa directed sci-fi thriller about the discovery of life on Mars…

This is definitely in the top three of my favourite trailers of 2016. I officially cannot wait to see this movie.

Anyone else wondering what on mars that scientist was thinking sticking his finger in there. Has he not watched any other sci-fi movies about life in outer space?
