Extraction (2020)

Chris Hemsworth is a mercenary on a deadly rescue mission in this action thriller written by Joe Russo (Avengers: Endgame) and directed by Sam Hargrave, a longtime stunt coordinator whose work includes Captain America: Civil War, Atomic Blonde and Avengers: Infinity War.

In an underworld of weapons dealers and traffickers, a young boy becomes the pawn in a war between notorious drug lords. Trapped by kidnappers inside one of the world's most impenetrable cities, his rescue beckons the unparalleled skill of a mercenary named Tyler Rake (Hemsworth). But Rake is a broken man with nothing to lose, harboring a death wish that makes an already deadly mission near impossible.

Extraction is what happens when the team behind the Marvel movies with the best superhero fight sequences give us their take on grounded, bloody, R-rated modern action. Director Sam Hargrave is obviously an admirer of contemporary genre titans Chad Stahelski and Gareth Evans, but with his feature debut he proves he’s not just a fan but a similarly skilled peer. While definitely showcasing his own style, Hargrave isn’t shy about paying homage to the modern classics his film immediately joins the ranks of.

Tight action thriller

Chris Hemsworth is fantastic in a more serious role to what we've come to expect. Fast paced thriller with some amazing action scenes. Highly recommend for Netflickers

An Extraction sequel is already being planned. I will be watching it.

Subtlety ain't its forte, but, surprisingly, subtitles abound in this Dhaka-set bullet fest.

Such grotesquerie signifies just how hard the R-rating will be on this Netflix release; heads are treated poorly, broken bones protrude and bodies are flung from buildings and riddled with bullets. Not that I’m complaining, mind you...

Extraction is a little bit hokey and absurd, and the very end has an exasperating cop-out – but it has to be admitted that, in terms of pure action octane, Russo and Hargrave bring the noise...

As pure movie kinesis, it's a trip.

There are some sweet as action sequences, including a very impressive, very kinetic single shot steadicam gun fight which I loved enough to watch over again and again (oh the upsides of streaming).

The film, written by Joe Russo (who directed “Avengers: Endgame”), is at its best during visceral, wordless action sequences. The most exhilarating one lasts more than 10 minutes and appears to be all one shot, like last year’s “1917.”

Hargrave has more than a little experience with this sort of thing, having been a stuntman, stunt coordinator and second-unit director on several Avengers films. It serves him well here, since the vast majority of the film's running time is consumed by shootouts, hand-to-hand fights, explosions and, in one particularly bravura segment, a chase conducted with cars, trucks and on foot.

While the climactic bridge battle will sate fans of explosions (it’s the type of film where everyone has a rocket launcher in their car boot) and splatty sound FX, the showstopper comes earlier: a turbo-charged, barrels-blazing, fists-flying pursuit that whips us in and out of cars in one impossibly long take.

Hemsworth would seem to have all the makings of a true screen idol, but has been unable to find footing outside of his most famous costume. Maybe he just doesn’t work when he’s not zooming around fighting comic-book enemies?
