Time out for Ryan Reynolds and his sponsored goodies

New Netflix movie '6 Underground' features Chopard

Gary Cotterell

The new Netflix original film 6 Underground is the perfect cocktail for the goldfish generation who like their glasses recharged every three seconds. It combines Fast & Furious auto action, superspy plots and slick cinematography in the perfect formula for a new action franchise. It’s gross and violent – cars drive over baddie humans a lot – but those cringe moments also come unashamedly layered with pure entertainment cheese.

Ryan Reynolds is in the lead as the US billionaire and philanthropist known as “One”. While this might not be his finest moment on screen, he is as entertaining as ever.  Chopard watches (https://www.chopard.com/) feature on his wrist. There is also an impressive necklace, from Chopard’s Garden of Kalahari collection, which is stolen by Bohemian Rhapsody actor Ben Hardy’s character “Four” prior to him being recruited by “One” to join his family of “ghosts”. This is an anonymous  squad of vigilantes who’ve faked their deaths to operate “underground” and take down criminals and terrorists.

With a budget of $150m there are a lot of expensive cars, which are written off every three seconds, some while driving over those humans. The opening car chase features a hot lime green Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, which is bound to appear in every teenager’s wet dreams. There’s a Maserati Quattroporte, Ferrari 488 Pista, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Lamborghini Urus, a Mini Cooper and lots of Range Rovers. You get the picture...
