Extraction: A brilliantly written story line with the lethal hybrid of Indian and American cinema
Show Time : Chris Hemsworth starrer, Extraction is a story of a fight between two drug lords and how a young kid is kidnapped and saved by a hired mercenary. Chris Hemsworth portrays the character of Tyler Rake, a mercenary who is dealing with his own issues from the past and how he lets it go when he is assigned with saving the Indian drug lord's child, Ovi Mahajan (Rudraksh Jaiswal) from the Bangladeshi drug lord Amir Asif (Priyanshu Painyuli) who has kidnapped him. The story further revolves around how Tyler's friend, Nik played by Golshifteh Farahani initially pursues him to leave the kid as the mission goes south but later on, decides to save the kid whom Tyler saved at the cost of his own life. Another important character played by Randeep Hooda, Saju comes into the play when he's also trying to save the boy with his own life while extracting him from the country. Indian actors like Pankaj Tripathi, Suraj Rikame, and Randeep Hooda have done their job par excellence alongside the almost perfect Chris Hemsworth. Netflix's popular series, Stranger Things star David Harbour also had an important cameo appearance in the film with his equally loveable acting. Not only did the actors but the storyline also did full justice with an ending that gives viewers the hope that there would be another part of the movie. The screenplay had no loophole and everyone played their parts really well. Director, Sam Hargrave looped in some exceptionally talented actors and a few new faces were gifted to the industry through Extraction. The cinematography for the film also deserves some applause. There is one particular action scene that is for around 10-15 minutes long that gives the viewers a portrayal that it was a single shot. The particular fight scene between Randeep Hooda and Chris Hemsworth is a treat for the Indian and Avengers fans collaboratively. This film has set a new benchmark and with the IMDb rating of 7.2/10, it gives a new hope for the standards of cinema to rise.
The Show Time rates Extraction as 10/10 for its an extraordinary performance that would not want you to even miss a single second on the screen.
