It all builds to a sacrificial finale that rips off "Man on Fire" with its bridge heroics and "The Bourne Identity" with an underwater plunge, only without the Moby soundtrack.

It's an action thriller that operates with the conventional mechanisms of the genre and does not have the slightest intention of bringing some strength to the plot of the mercenary trapped by his past. [Full review in Spanish]

Extraction loses steam fast and it turns into yet another forgettable shooting bonanza. [Full review in Spanish]

It says a lot that the most interesting thing about Extraction is its end credits, which clock in at a staggering 14 minutes. Coincidentally, it's also about 14 minutes into the film that you'll start to lose interest.

Hemsworth plays a hardened and haunted mercenary (is there another kind?) who is hired to "extract" the son of a Bangladeshi drug lord who has been kidnapped by his rival. That's the entire narrative of the story.

Because almost all the main characters in the movie act like killing machines, there's almost a video-game quality to Extraction that's disappointing for a feature film that could have been better.
April 27, 2020
In the end, Extraction is a solid film if you're looking for action, but falls flat in terms of both character, premise, and performance.

'Extraction' isn't a terrible movie, but it's not just terribly great either. The action is sharply done and it pulls along at a brisk pace, but it's when things slow down that you begin to notice it's running on fumes.

Extraction is a lackluster and forgettable affair, despite some exciting moments. But then again, most modern war movies are exactly that. Chris Hemsworth is in a movie where stuff blows up and it's free. We're all going to watch it.

Netflix aims to extract bored stay at homers with latest mindless action flick.
Full Review | Original Score: C
May 11, 2020
The movie loses points not just for its regressive outlook, but also for its underdeveloped plot, with a basic storyline so dull and predictable that it lacks excitement despite all the conflict.
April 26, 2020
"Extraction" is mainly for hardcore action fans and those who think Chris Hemsworth can do no wrong.

April 23, 2020
There's no shortage of gunplay, grenades, and hand-to-hand combat on Extraction - but little else.
April 22, 2020
Beyond some credible ambience, it's a mostly characterless affair, led by a likeable but somnolent Hemsworth in a narrative which paddles about in superficial details and motivations.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 27, 2020
Everyone in this film is reduced to quick, shallow clichés.
May 15, 2020
Extraction is worth watching for those who are action junkies, but for the casual viewer, it will probably leave something to be desired.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
April 22, 2020
Chris Hemsworth's hyperbolically skilled soldier is borne of childish fantasies about the order of the world.

Hemsworth might just be better at playing characters that share his natural droll charm and smirking sense of mischief. In Extraction, he often looks like he's the one who wants to be rescued.
April 22, 2020
The action rolls along like something out of a video game but without the forward momentum and love for characters that the Russo Brothers gave us in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Sam Hargrave's vision, giving gloss to the grime and gravitas, collapses under the narrative's constant barrage of clichés, convolution and contrivance.
