Extraction 2020 Netflix Action

Audience reviews

  • This is a treat on pure entertainment standpoint, we actually don’t get much of character introduction at first which is fine and the first heartful moment we get with Tyler Rake is executed very well, David harbour is in here for a brief period which is always +1 for marketing & the kid is also done a great job.
  • There is this 16 minute continuous single take sequence which is exceptional like literally out of the world, we get action sequences from Building, car chase, fight on road with Randeep Hooda within same continuous take. Maybe there are some hidden cuts burried inside bt it doesn’t matter & OMG it is best action sequence I saw like ever, popularised by Daredevil single shot fight in 2015 & carried forward in movies by John Wick, the sequence in Extraction is unlike anything else, I’m glad Action getting more interesting then before.

After initial hour & so, before climatic sequence it gets familiar and less intresting, By then we understand how things end like 15 minutes before and it’s a drag, it becomes John Wick where Protogonists literally fighting AI & seemingly bad guys die by falling in line of fire instead of fighting back for their lives. It’s a pure entertainer in terms of Action.

One word:- Impactful
My Rating:- ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2

Extraction is Tightly Packed from
the very beginning and keeps you hooked to the screen with its Well-choreographed (High-Octane) Action Sequences, a Heart-Thudding Background Score and Brilliant Camera Work.
The story of film looks strictly Decent
Chris Hemsworth has been hired on a mission to Extract a boy, the kidnapped son of an Indian Drug lord, held in captive by a gangster from Bangladesh. Subsequently, as things fly off the handle, and with an armed professional behind his back, the remainder of the movie explores how Chris Hemsworth manages to protect this boy’s life while hanging on a suicide mission that manages to get deadlier every single second.
Screenplay by Joe Russo is Strictly okey as the Depth & Exciting twists in the story is missing but Director Sam Hargrave has executed Brilliantly and Delivered the full dose of Entertainment
BG Music by Henry Jackman and Alex Belcher is impactful.
Newton Thomson Nigel’s camera work amazes you by capturing the streets of Bangladesh stunningly, and the stunt scenes, especially the continuous shots during the fight sequences are highly enjoyable.
Director Sam Hargrave has really gone out of the way to capture some shots we haven’t seen on this scale in a long time.
Chris Hemsworth,who stood out throughout the film and Delivered outstanding Performance.Randeep Hooda too succeeds to steal the show with his spectacular performance. Rudhraksh as Ovi does justice to his role. Pankaj Tripathi and Priyanshu Painyuli get little to do.


Final Verdict
Grab some snacks and prepare yourself for a thrill-a-minute.
Extraction is a power-packed action thriller that shouldn’t be missed
A Massive Treat for an Action Lovers.

I was eagerly anticipating this movie as this is perhaps the first time I have ever seen my country of origin Bangladesh be represented on the big screen by Netflix. I was super excited to see Hargrave and Hemsworth’s take on the extremely gritty, and underrated Bangladeshi criminal underworld which is filled to the brim with colourful characters and strange customs.

However this film completely misses the mark when it comes to the authenticity of the country it is attempting to highlight. Perhap’s Extraction’s most disappointing downfall is it’s DISTRACTINGLY horrible Bengali, which as a native speaker completely ruins the experience. The Bangladeshi goons speak in disjointed, almost formal syllables where even the delivery of classic swear words is extremely off putting, and the Bengali heard throughout the film (eg. from the Elite police and military) is also very artificial. Priyanshu Painyuli as Dhaka city’s biggest drug lord Amir Asif was the biggest culprit when it came to this. With his absolutely ATROCIOUS delivery of inner city “Dhakaiya” dialect, most of the Indian actor’s delivery was unintelligible, disjointed, and just plain bad (Hemsworth spoke better Bangla in my opinion with “proman dao”, give proof). With his hipster boy haircut and flashy suit, the young, comical Painyuli looks more like a friendly saree seller than an urban metropolis’s formidable boss. Amir Asif was the most disappointing character who looked way too young for the role and did not resemble a drug lord at ALL, much less a ruthless one.

Hargrave did Bengalis around the world a great disservice by not working with Bangladeshi actors, nor bothering to consult with an actual Bangladeshi who I guarantee could have improved this film astronomically. This film really had the potential to strike the fear of God into viewers’ hearts with a truly terrifying villain, but fails to tap into this with misguided casting, and wasting the talents of legends such as Pankaj Tripathi.

Despite the glaring pitfalls when it came to the antagonist Amir Asif, Hargrave was able to compensate this admirably with beautiful cinematography that captured the claustrophobia of Dhaka’s dense alleyways. Seeing real shots of the Buriganga, and mentioning various important places such as Sultana Kamal bridge was definitely a milestone. The aerial shots of Dhaka at various points throughout the day were breathtaking, and the fight scenes were masterfully choreographed. Hemsworth and Hooda’s physical prowess were definitely highlighted in the super intense fight scenes which definitely caused me to hold my breath. The choice of using children as henchmen also showed the brutal realities of many underprivileged kids in Dhaka. The costumes were also very well designed, and were representative of its wearer’s socio-economic status, with the exception of Amir Asif who looked like a low grade model in his overly ornate getup.

Overall, I am happy to see my country be represented on screen, and I applaud the efforts to deliver a fabulous, true to life set in Bangladesh despite being originally filmed in India. However the extensive violence could have been replaced with more meaningful character development for the mercenaries, the drug lords from both countries, better casting with actors who actually spoke the language, and better research into Bangladesh.

A solid 6.5/10.
