Extraction? I'd rather have my teeth pulled by diseased, evil monkeys.
It takes confidence to put out a movie whose single-word title is also the procedure by which a dentist gets rid of a rotten tooth.
It's a rare movie that can't be saved by Bruce Willis single-handedly killing all the bad guys. And yet, here it is: Extraction.
The action-thriller "Extraction" may not be about tooth removal, but for all the fun it proves, it might as well be.
Extraction's ... not, by any stretch of the imagination, "good." But at least it doesn't waste everybody's time.
Extraction constantly tries to score a flashy TKO - but never lands a decent body blow.
Like many films of its kind, wants to be smart when it isn't, rather than accept itself and just be fun. [Full review in Spanish]
An insubstantial film that is predictable, anticlimactic, conservative, nationalist, sexist and homophobic. [Full review in Spanish]
An espectacular militarized action movie. [Full review in Spanish]
In terms of entertainment value, the movie a few notches above sitting in a dentist's chair. But only a few notches.
The story's weaknesses are very quickly revealed, with the script calling on action-clichés and eye-rolling one-liners.
Bad acting, clunky cinematography and editing, heavy violence, and a less-than-genius screenplay make this a totally disposable action movie, not even recommendable to die-hard Willis ans.
Generic tripe, Extraction is a standard, by-the-numbers spy thriller. The story follows CIA agent Harry Turner, who must go rogue in order to save his father after he's captured during an operation gone wrong. Starring Kellan Lutz, Gina Carano, D.B. Sweeney, and Bruce Willis, the cast isn't that bad; their performances however, are terrible. And the writing is incredibly poor; full of stereotypical characters and lame tropes. Yet the fast pacing brings some energy to the film, and the score does a good job at creating tension and suspense. Still, Extraction is painfully formulaic and their no fun to any of the action.
Typical and formulaic, chances are people will watch this just because it has Bruce Willis and nothing more. His performance is nothing special either which says it all about this movie.
