Incredibly violent, horrible language

Incredibly violent. The language is none stop. We even watched this in Vidangel and it was hard to watch. 20 F words in the first 10 mins, so much violence!!! An eyeball is cut out of someone's head, bullets streaming through people's eyes, beams going through people, blood streaming about... Again in only the first few mins. This is no way appropriate for kids at all.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (15 ):
Kids say (27 ):

Michael Bay creates a new brand with rhythm to it: crash, boom, bullet through head, followed by a one-liner, a profundity, then walks off into the sunset ready for Sequels 1-5. Action fans will love it. There's plenty of "how did they do that?" and it's deserved, though sometimes hard to follow because the human editing hasn't quite caught up with the tech. All the performances are fine; the actors have very little to play and there's no need for subtlety. As the leader, Ryan Reynolds may be this generation's Bruce Willis, only nicer, without the snark, and with deep thoughts about how freeing death can be. But if viewers are looking for a story with any nuance at all, or inventive characters and relationships, leave 6 Underground to those who are happy to watch buildings shatter and "skywalkers" who defy man's limitations.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
