Ryan Reynolds isn't one of these movie purists, it would seem.

The Deadpool actor, whose new movie 6 Underground has just launched on Netflix, says that if people want to watch a movie on their phones, they should go nuts.

He told Variety: “You should be able to watch whatever the f**k you want to watch on whatever f**king device you want to watch it on.

“I don’t know. I would say that’s just the way things are.”

His comments come on the heels of Martin Scorsese's squeamishness over whether people might be watching his latest movie The Irishman, made by Netflix, on small devices rather than big screens.

Speaking to Rolling Stone critic Peter Travers, the director said: “I would suggest — if you ever want to see one of my pictures, or most films — please, please don’t look at it on a phone, please.

“An iPad, a big iPad, maybe.”

Michael Bay, who's directed 6 Underground, added to the industry mag that he's sitting somewhere between Reynolds and Scorsese.

“I don’t want my movies to be watched on a phone either,” he said.

“But movies aren’t that bad on these new TVs that have HDR, high dynamic range. Listen most of the Academy votes on TVs, okay. We all love movies. I’m a big cinema guy.

“But, the great thing about Netflix is it’s a new voice out here and it’s a strong voice. And they do interesting content. So, that’s why I appreciate it.”

So far, the reviews for the actioner, which finds Ryan Reynolds as the leader of a group of billionaire vigilantes, have been a mixed bag, however.

Indiewire called Bay latest 'as ambitious and insane as anything [Bay]’s ever made', though Variety has branded it 'imbecilic'.
