The 43-year-old actor stars as One, an American billionaire and philanthropist who fakes his own death to form an anonymous vigilante squad to take down criminals and terrorists, and, while he enjoyed shooting action scenes for the film, he confessed he was terrified during one particular car chase.
"There's a car chase in this movie that's unlike anything else, a ride round Florence that's totally wild, speeding in a Day-Glo green Alfa Romeo at 150 mph down narrow walkways that should never be used for anything but walking," he told Empire magazine. "I thought I was gonna die."
He then quipped, "Weirdly enough, it was Michael Bay's life that flashed before my eyes. That was strange."
The "Deadpool" star also admitted it had been an ambition of his to appear in one of the "Transformers" director's movies, and confessed his latest project "scratched a life-long itch, to be part of his crazy circus".
"What I can say is this is certainly an old-school Michael Bay spectacle film," he teased. "It's just action upon action upon more action."
"6 Underground" is now streaming on Netflix.
