EXTRACTION (Mini-review)  

Director: Sam Hargrave Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Golshifteh Farahani, Rudhraksh Jaiswal, Piyush Khati, Shivam Vichare, Pankaj Tripathi.

If you are looking for any resemblance of a script, or character development or any original emotional arc, then forget about this film. However if you want about 100 minutes of incredible action non stop, look no further! “Extraction” must take the crown as the blockbuster of the year so far (and given that movie theatres will be close for a while, it’ll keep the top spot for a long time).The film literally starts with a bang and never lets go. It is absolutely relentless as the body count keeps rising and getting more and more bloody and the film gets more and more tense. In among all that, there’s a particular chase scene which probably goes on for about 20 or so in a seamless one-take-wonder (which clearly must have been several shots “magically” and invisibly stitched together): it is one of the best action moment I’ve seen in a very long time and I was on the edge of my sofa pretty much all the way through. The usual moaner will probably say that it looked like a “call of duty” extract, to which I’ll reply “So what!?”. It was the most exciting thing I’ve seen in quite a while and never got bored.
One final interesting fact: the final credits are about 15 minutes long!!! 😱
