      Extraction Reviews

      Ultimately unable to escape its genre roots... it is difficult not to enjoy a film where a man called Rake kills two men with a rake!

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Nov 11, 2022

      It doesn’t want to be character study or a think piece. It’s not interested in commentary or metaphors. Instead “Extraction” is a throwback to the better action movies of the late 80’s to mid-90s. It’s straightforward, unapologetic, and an absolute blast.

      With its fidgety two-hour runtime and the nonstop procession of gunfire and explosions, Extraction grows tedious, largely as a fault of the screenplay.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/4 | Feb 20, 2022

      Extraction never quite reaches the level of a great film. But, it is a film that channels the action films of yesteryear to provide much-needed quarantine entertainment for all cinephiles.

      The action is mostly clean and precise, a clear indication of Hargrave's foundation and the respect he has for what these stunt people do.

      Dumb, derivative and far too serious, Chris Hemsworth's latest is still a whole heap of fun...

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Apr 23, 2021

      Extraction is one of those mostly brainless action movies that is best enjoyed for the intensity of its fight and chase scenes. If you can focus on those and not the story, you're in for a fun time.

      It's nothing we hadn't seen before, but when it comes to its action and its stunt work, it's something we haven't seen done this well for quite some time.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/5 | Feb 1, 2021

      Hits like a ton of bricks...dumb as a sack of rocks.

      Full Review | Original Score: C | Jan 29, 2021

      'Extraction' is indeed full of shootouts, fight sequences and chase scenes. The body count is relentless. But amid all of the action, the relationship between fathers and sons is at the heart of the film.

      "Extraction" is a bone-rattling, epic fifteen rounds of urban warfare rescue mission with a soulful and redemptive career-best dramatic performance from Hemsworth.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Nov 19, 2020

      Despite Extraction's issues with a very minimal story, it's a lot of fun. The action is a non-stop, hyperventilating barrage of greatness.

      Full Review | Nov 18, 2020

      One does have to watch a lot of the stuntwork through a kind of veil of ineffective camera set-ups and poor visual storytelling.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2/5 | Oct 19, 2020

      Extraction won't revolutionize the action genre, but it shows that leaving the ones who get the punches in charge of the action is a good idea. [Full review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/10 | Oct 16, 2020

      It's a brutal, pretty joyless action movie that aims to awe with visceral action. But once you get beyond all the bullets and mayhem, you quickly realise that the film doesn't have much else to offer.

      Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5 | Aug 28, 2020

      When you're watching a blood-soaked Hemsworth slash and shoot his way through dozens of bad guys, it's difficult to have too many complaints.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Aug 20, 2020

      Patterns are only good to a certain extent. The movie is hilariously predictable. The true and only star is it's stuntman made director Sam Hargrave. [Full review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Original Score: 6/10 | Aug 20, 2020

      It's an action thriller that operates with the conventional mechanisms of the genre and does not have the slightest intention of bringing some strength to the plot of the mercenary trapped by his past. [Full review in Spanish]

      Full Review | Original Score: 5/10 | Aug 5, 2020

      Hemsworth's leading charisma is enough to keep you glued to this (occasionally magnetic) thrill ride.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3 / 5 | Jul 28, 2020

      Accidentally as close as anyone has come to capturing a "Call of Duty" game on film (right down to the agreeably over-the-top, very VERY R-rated body-count and blood-spilling.

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
