6 Underground | 2019 | R | – 6.9.10

content-ratingsWhy is “6 Underground” rated R? The MPAA rating has been assigned for “strong violence and language throughout, bloody images and some sexual content.” The Kids-In-Mind.com evaluation includes a few sex scenes with little nudity and some sexual references; an extended car chase scene, many scenes of gunfire exchanges that end with many people being shot with a lot of blood, a scene of a medical procedure performed in a speeding car that results in a lot of blood being sprayed, many scenes of gunfire exchanged between people causing many bloody and gory injuries and death, a plane crash, a high-rise building is destroyed while people inside are sprayed with gas, and an electromagnetic device causes very loud noises as it destroys a ship and buildings; and over 90 F-words and other strong language. Read our parents’ guide below for details on sexual content, violence & strong language.”


A group of international commandos under the leadership of a tech billionaire (Ryan Reynolds) erase their histories and go off the grid in order to more freely fight for justice. Also with Melanie Laurent, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Ben Hardy, Adria Arjona, Dave Franco and Corey Hawkins. Directed by Michael Bay. A few phrases and sentences are spoken in Italian, an Asian language, and an Arabic language with English subtitles. [Running Time: 2:07]

6 Underground SEX/NUDITY 6

 – In a dimly lit room, a man and a woman disrobe and lie on a bed and a close-up shows both of their faces grimacing as the man seems to be thrusting from behind the woman and the scene cuts to morning when the woman is shown wearing a skimpy bra and a thong that reveal cleavage, abdomen and bare legs to the hips (the man is fully dressed). We see the head and back of a man wearing an undershirt as he bends over a woman bent forward over the end of a bed (we briefly see her bare shoulders and back and a bra); the man gasps and thrusts and the scene abruptly ends. In a very dimly lit room, a man and a woman disrobe, kiss, and lie on a bed (sex is implied); we see the couple in bed in the morning under covers and when the woman moves we see that she is wearing a sleeveless nightgown (no cleavage is apparent), and the scene ends.
 A man says that another man had some sort of masturbating accident leading to death. A man stands closely to another man, who says, “I can feel the tip…” and the first man walks away. A man wears a shirt with a white arrow on it pointing to his crotch with the words “The Legend.”
 Two museum statues of nude males include genitals. A woman wears a long deeply cut V-neckline dress that reveals significant cleavage. A woman wears a below-the-knee clingy dress. Several women on a yacht wear short skirts that bare legs to the upper thighs.

6 Underground VIOLENCE/GORE 9

 – An extended high-speed car chase destroys many vehicles that flip several times and catch fire while two men and two women in the car being chased argue and shout; one woman holds her abdomen (we see some blood) and the other woman inserts a metal instrument into the woman’s abdomen and digs around for several minutes (her hands and forearms become red from spurting blood and more blood spurts into her eyes and mouth) as unseen people in the chase cars shoot at the other vehicle; the woman shouts, “I got it!” about a bullet in the other woman’s stomach (we do not see the bullet) and a man in the pursued car holds up a bloody eyeball on a tendon and the other man in the car shouts while pedestrians and two dogs run out of the way of the cars; two men on motorcycles skid off-screen, three nuns fall off bicycles (they seem unharmed), a man falls and slams against a speeding car (he dies and slides off-screen), market stalls are demolished, an empty sidewalk cafe is wrecked by a car, two SUVs drive off a bridge onto another road and crash (we do not see the drivers or passengers), and the pursued car drives through a shattering plate glass wall, through a museum and out again until the car crashes against a railing and the driver slumps over dead.
 Many scenes include men and women firing automatic rifles, causing dozens of people to fall dead, some with blood on their bodies. We see a dozen men shot in the head with blood spurting out of the backs of their heads onto walls. We hear a bang off-screen and the camera cuts to a headless man falling to his knees and forward to the ground (we see the gaping neck ragged and bleeding). A man is shown burning to a cinder. In a close-up of a man facing the camera with a cigar in his mouth, a bullet enters the cigar and exits the back of the man’s head (blood spurts forward and backward). In slow motion, a driver’s nose and upper lip are ripped by a passing bullet, spraying blood on the car windows. We see video footage of a row of dead men from the chest down, lined up on the ground (no blood is visible).
 Many electromagnets on a yacht cause a deafening noise and we see people and metal objects thrown into walls (the impact killing people); metal trays and people in the galley slam against a wall, followed by dozens of butcher knives that stab the people killing them (we see some blood), and a man’s head is slammed into a railing (we see no blood); we later see a man’s body on the floor with his chest penetrated by a dozen large knives and showing blood, and the yacht sinks halfway into the water and we see flames and smoke. Two men are shot and fall dead into a rooftop pool. Three men are thrown off a tall building, and we hear that they died. During a jewel robbery, a man falls off a high-rise ledge and dies on the ground (we hear the impact). A man is kidnapped after a few men are killed by automatic rifle fire (we see blood on their bodies). A large group of protesters cheer, march, and shout in streets as a man escapes in an SUV; the vehicle is blocked by other vehicles and a man is kidnapped, a man flips his car over several times and it lands on its roof (we see him scratched), and the kidnapped man is given to the protesters, who beat him with wooden clubs, then kick and punch him (likely to death) and we see some blood on a street.
 Men and women wearing gas masks release gas into a high rise building and dozens of victims laugh and writhe on the floors while gunfire from a tall crane strike a rooftop pool and it floods the corridors as people run; a shot hits a man’s gas mask (he is uninjured), loud electromagnetic noises break several walls of glass loudly, a few men are shot and fall dead with blood on their bodies, a man is kidnapped, three short fistfights occur, two men fall off a ledge onto a metal mesh floor and one man chokes the other man until he is shot dead and falls onto the top of a car, and a crane collapses into the building and brings part of it down as police cars approach with sirens sounding.
 Soldiers and rebels exchange gunfire and men fall (we do not see blood), several buildings explode and collapse, children in tent hospitals are shown wearing bandages and a boy falls out of a wheelchair as people run and place gas masks on the children, while planes drop gas bombs that cause billowing smoke.
 A man tied to a chair is set up with a rifle wired to shoot him if he moves; it fires and misses him and he shouts as another man laughs. A small plane dives and a pilot shouts, “Mayday”; we watch in a long shot as the plane goes down with a smoke trail into a forest (we see the pilot later, unharmed). Five people dump a man’s body in a large plastic bag into the sea. A man is reported dead, but we see him watching his own funeral and we hear that he faked his own death. A man stands on a railing on a tall building, slides down a dome, runs across a ledge, and jumps to another ledge and finally to the ground. We see a montage of debris and spent bullet casings. A tall statue is toppled over into a high-rise building, shattering glass loudly.
 A man argues with a woman in several scenes, and two men argue loudly in a few scenes. A man offers to sell gas bombs to a buyer.
 A woman on a stage spits a lot of spray into the face of a man also on stage. Pigeons defecate on a windshield. A man urinates onto the floor of his hotel room before falling dead from a bloody gunshot wound to the back of the head.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
