I don’t normally do this but I think my TL has pushed me to it.
This is Michael Bay going full-Bay. So over the top ridiculous, hyper-edited and hyper-violent. I like it… a live action comic book with brutal violence and wisecracking heroes. Sorta reminds me of The Losers.
Really helps to have a likable cast (Ryan Reynolds and his smart mouth + Melanie Laurent as a total badass) and beautiful on location setpieces shot really well. This looks like 150 million dollar movie and one that people are gonna enjoy or outright hate (I’ve seen instances of both already).
Sad we couldn’t see it in theater; it’s a big screen kind of movie (it’s playing iPic around here but ain’t doing that for $25/ticket). Kinda surprised Pickwick didn’t pick this up since they did The Irishman.
From my TL: “6 UNDERGROUND is a 2-hour long car commercial, watch commercial, Army commercial, Discovery channel travelogue, and US propaganda video all mashed into one, only without the plot coherence and basic rules of filmmaking continuity that that description might imply.”
Pretty much. Reminds of the movie Team America and the song “America, fuck yeah!”
I’ve seen so many hilarious tweets I kinda want to copy&paste; them all here. =)
