“No matter how badass you think you are, there is always a badass bigger than you.” Amir, the main antagonist of this Netflix rescue thriller, says to one of his numerous henchmen during an early scene. It’s almost as if he knew I’d be comparing this movie to the likes of John Wick, Jason Bourne and all the other memorable characters with terrific stunt work before he made that statement.
In case the thought crossed your mind, no, this isn’t me hinting at ‘Extraction’ being a masterpiece or having a protagonist whose name would go on to strike fear whenever called upon, that’s not it at all. My praises, however, are unreserved for it having one of the most impressive choreography, camera work shot angles, and stunt work I’ve seen in a while.
Oh my! What’s not to love about Chris Hemsworth punching and killing people?
Everything the movie’s cliche rescue storyline lacks in originality, its impressive action sequences make up for it. And I think for this movie, that’s enough to love it.
Netflix leaves the ending ambiguous, probably to test the waters, see how viewers react and decide if a sequel should happen sometime in the future.
