From the production of the Russo brothers, with a script from Joe himself and based on the story of his own graphic novel, which they produced with Ande Parks, this film comes to us.



Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) is a black market mercenary who has nothing to lose. Bothered by his past, he rushes from one dangerous mission to the next to overlay the pain with the next adrenaline rush. When the son of an international gangster boss is kidnapped, he gratefully accepts the assignment.

Initially looked like a suicide mission is getting much worse in a very short time, the planned delivery of the Ovi Mahajan (Rudhraksh Jaiswal) fails. The trained mercenary has to transport his protégé across the city without any damage. Hunted by the local army and the henchmen of the local mobsters, a cat and mouse game develops, while a safe extraction moves further and further away.

Other main characters in this film Saju (Randeep Hooda), a subordinate works for Ovi's father and is tasked with making sure he's freed otherwise, his boss has his own family killed. Saju, in many ways, is the most compelling (and morally complicated) antihero in the film. The Knife fight scene with Tyler Rake is a remarkable scene in this movie.

What's Good?

  • Action sequence
  • The hustle and bustle of dingy Dhaka street markets is clearly brought to life

What's Wrong?

  • Drama in between the scenes with Rudhraksh Jaiswal.
  • Extraction needs some of the flow and blood-soaked style of the John Wick series.
  • Sad Climax

My Rating 7/10
