It seems as though 6 Underground ended up being something of a disappointment for Netflix, at least it was according to the streamer’s Film Chief, Scott Stuber. So, this is why Netflix has opted not to greenlight a sequel for the Michael Bay film (6 Underground).
This was revealed by Netflix’s Film Chief, Stuber, during a recent interview with Variety.
During the interview, they went over some of the action movies that are getting sequels.
The likes of Extraction, The Old Guard and Bright are all getting sequels.
However, one big-budget movie that isn’t getting a sequel is 6 Underground, even though there was a bit of a tease for one at the end of the film.
According to Variety, Stuber confessed to them that the film was “something of a disappointment”.
The Netflix Film Chief then went on to add:
We didn’t feel like we got there on that one creatively. It was a nice hit, but at the end of the day we didn’t feel like we nailed the mark to justify coming back again. There just wasn’t that deep love for those characters or that world.

I am really not surprised by this news whatsoever.
Let’s be brutally honest here, the film was bad.
It was a big-budget film.
They spent over $150 million on it and it was ‘un vrai film de Michael Bay’.
However, that was also one of the reasons why the film ended up being so poor.
Michael Bay’s movies are fun to look at.
There are lots of explosions and some really good action set pieces in them.
If there’s anyone who knows how to direct a good car chase or shoot out, it’s Michael Bay.
However, the film’s plot was utter pants. It was terrible and made almost no sense.
This is always the problem with Bay’s movies. They lack any character development and have no plot.
That is why I think his films aren’t always loved by critics, and even by some moviegoers.
What do you make of this movie?
