I genuinely had high hopes for this movie. Having the like of Russo and Chris Hemsworth – I thought it would be good.
Honestly, if I were you, skip this. Unless you want an action movie then the cinematography is impressive.
I personally felt Hemsworth had the same level of emotional scale as Kristen Stewart in the Twilight series.
I know it will take some time for myself and perhaps the audience to move away from expecting him to play Thor.
But I have seen him as a jock in the horror/comedy(?) movie – Cabin In The Woods and even though he played a jock in there, he pulled it off with a range of emotion that was needed. So it’s not like that he doesn’t know how to act.
The young actor Rudhraksh Jaiswal was a delight and to see the range of emotions on his face made some parts of the movie more believable.
Great for the fight scenes and car chases and not much else. If you had to, I’d choose another Netflix movie instead.

Personally, I would give it a B Plus I was really surprised how much I loved this movie. The fight scenes and chris job as the lead character were amazing and those beautiful long shots just made this movie thrilling from start to finish.
This movie should be REALLY recognized for combat /fights and sound effects as it really nailed the fight and violence scenes. So sad there ain’t a category in oscar for that, stuntmen and doubles work so hard and need that recognition for sure. Now Extraction 2 is going to released. I hope to see amazing response for this in the industry.
Whilst I agree that the action sequences were good, I found the overall movie lacking. Chris seemed almost wooden in his acting – I was not sure what kind of persona he was trying to go for. Since your comment, I have watched the movie again and my rating still stands. Hopefully Extraction 2 might redeem it, though not many movies can pull off a sequel really well. Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment!
