Welcome to one of the quietest Fridays in recent memory on Netflix with only one headline Netflix Original arriving on Netflix today. Beyond that, Netflix added a recent horror movie, a Mandarin movie and quite a few movies from Nollywood. Here’s what’s new on Netflix for December 13th, 2019.
As we mentioned, today is very light, particularly on new Netflix Originals. The main reason we can think of is that Netflix has a stacked lineup over the Christmas break.
Now let’s dive into today’s new releases.
6 Underground (2019)
Genre: Action, Thriller
Director: Michael Bay
Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Adria Arjona, Mélanie Laurent, Ben Hardy
Runtime: 128 mins
Today’s headline new movie is one that doesn’t take itself seriously like Netflix’s other big movies for 2019. Ryan Reynolds plays the role of One who along with a cohort of other stars are untraceable agents trying to go off-grid.
It’s a big-budget movie from the director of the likes of Bad Boys and Transformers. As per any Michael Bay production, it’s got plenty of action and plenty of explosions.
Although audience scores are sitting at 7.3/10 at the time of publishing, critics have been less kind with an average score of 44 on Metacritic.
Silent Hill: Revelation (2012)
Director: M.J. Bassett
Cast: Adelaide Clemens, Kit Harington, Carrie-Anne Moss, Sean Bean
Runtime: 95 min
Silent Hill is a huge name in horror with it being a video game franchise and having had its first movie adaptation back in 2006.
This follow-up to the 2006 movie was one of the pioneering
Despite the name behind it, reviews for this movie paint a bad picture. On RottenTomatoes the movie sits at 10% whereas the Metacritic score fares slightly better at 16/100. IMDb is split down the middle with it currently sitting at 5.0/10.
The 9th Precinct (2019)
Genre: Action, Drama, Fantasy
Director: Wang Ding-Lin
Cast: Roy Chiu, Eugenie Liu, Chia-Chia Peng, Chen-Ling Wen
Runtime: 95 min
Mandarin movies have tended to do well on Netflix over the past few years so we’re happy to see another big blockbuster action drama arrive onto the service.
Here’s what you can expect:
An idealistic cop joins an underground police unit and battles ghoulish forces threatening the balance between the human and the supernatural realms.
Although we were unable to find an English trailer, there are English subtitles available for the movie although sadly, there is no English dub.
