Extraction

Aaron Brown & Laurel McCulloch review the latest Netflix film ‘Extraction’.

Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth), a fearless black market mercenary, embarks on the most deadly extraction of his career when he’s enlisted to rescue the kidnapped son of an imprisoned international crime lord. Directed by a formal stunt man (Sam Hargrave). If you love action, there is some incredible choregraphed fight work. Hemsworth does all his own stunts

Extraction reminded Laurel of the Bourne franchise, where the scenes are “pretty intense”, but more darker & gritty. There is lots of action, explosions, bullet wounds. And it becomes quite complex, where you need to pay close attention to keep up. Aaron thinks it’s along the lines of John Wick, but not as fun.

Family Friendly Filter:

  • Rated R. Not a family film
  • Violence – Lots of fight sequences, stabbings, sniper rifles, grenades, rocket launchers, broken bones, shootings,
  • Violence against children – a child being thrown off the top of a building. As a parent, Aaron didn’t like the violence against children and found that very confrontational.
  • Frequent Coarse Language
  • Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Aaron strongly advises not to watch this film, unless you’re really sure you want to see a really intense action film. There is no light relief through the film.

Aaron and Laurel do not give it a thumbs up.
