The film tells the story of a mercenary named Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) who is brave and cold-hearted but kind. Tyler is on a mission to save a child from the leader of the biggest drug cartel in India, Manhajan. Manhajan’s son, Ovi (Rudhraksh Jaiswal), was kidnapped by his rival cartel in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The rescue mission went according to plan and became very difficult because Amir Asif (Priyanshu Painyuli) – the leader of the kingpin – was very influential in Dhaka, where Ovi was kidnapped.
As his first debut film, Hargrave managed to make a fairly epic action film. Extraction like action films in general which has a very simple premise with linear flow. However, the action scenes in this film are amazing, with some one-long-shot sequences that feel real. This long action scene is at least a dozen minutes long.
The intensity of the fight in the film Extraction is quite tight and makes the audience tense. The camera moves dynamically when the scene of a car chase, moving from one object to another. Even the camera was seen jumping when Tyler jumped from building to building. Best Movie
Unfortunately the plot in this film is very ordinary. Even the audience did not know for sure what the main motive of Amir Asif was to kidnap Manhajan’s son, because there was a scene where the kidnapper asked Manhajan to ransom his son’s release. In addition there are some CGI that looks rather annoying. The background story of each character is also shown very briefly and seems to jump up and down.
It seems that the quality of the story is not the main target in this film, but Extraction is worth watching as entertainment for action movie lovers. You could say Extraction is one of the best action films earlier this year. Movie Review
