Direction is straight to the edge , Screeplay by Joe Russo is okay but not so promising and the only thing that impresses in the movie is Newton Thomas Sigel’s cinematography. The camera work done is perfectly insane. Music by Henry Jackman and Alex Belcher is a nice piece of work. Action stunts are basically the only thing that makes this film a worth watch.
Extraction can be a treat for action lovers as there is a lot of brutal killing, heart throbbing stunts and chaos everywhere. There are choppers getting blown up and policemen getting shot at. The film adds to the charm of Chris Hemsworth’s image. The editing of the film by Stan Salfas is also amazing.
Rudhraksh Jaiswal as Ovi Junior has acted more better than Hemsworth probably and not to forget Extraction’s second lead Randeep Hooda who played Saju. Randeep is an Indian Bollywood actor who has gained popularity through immense versatility in his acting performances.
Extraction is based on the comic Ciudad by Ande Parks, Joe Russo, Anthony Russo, based on the comic Ciudad by Ande Parks, Joe Russo, Anthony Russo, Fernando Leon Gonzalez, Eric Skillman and Fernando Leon Gonzalez. The film also stars Stranger Things star David Harbour who played Gasper and betrays Tyler and Ovi. His screen presence is attractive and unforgetful.
Extraction Ending Explained : Is Tyler Rake still alive?
Tyler Rake , a black ops mercenary who must extract the son of an Indian drug lord in exchange for money but the situation changes when Saju ( Randeep Hooda ) who is the man behind Ovi’s safety and is an ex Special Forces agent comes face to face. Tyler realizes he has been tricked as there was no money with Saju or the Drug lord to give him that’s why Saju came to extract the son from Tyler.
Later on , when Tyler asks Gasper ( David Harbour ) for help, he comes forward but only for Tyler not for the kid. He betrays them and informs the Bangladeshi drug lord about them. Gasper is killed in a fight.
Tyler now understands that the only way they can move out safely is by joining hands with Saju which he does later in the film. The climax of them film is very action packed.
Soon after , Golshifteh Farahani as Nik Khan ( Tyler’s friend ) comes to Dhaka to rescue them all but Saju gets shot and killed meanwhile Tyler is seriously injured and drags himself to jump off the bridge in the river.
8 Months later, we see Nik Khan killing the Bangladeshi drug lord and in a separate scene we see Ovi junior swimming into his school’s pool. When he comes out of the pool, he sees a foreigner sitting beside the pool which is probably Tyler. Yes, Tyler is alive in the climax of the film.
