Netflix movie Extraction is an embarrassment . The story is about rescuing a young kid from a drug lord stronghold. In this movie, the Thor actor Chris Hemsworth was tasked to rescue .Extraction is a beautiful example of a low budget, poor storytelling, and third-grade action movie. It feels like an Indian Movie – with a Hollywood face.
Extraction is the directorial debut of Sam Hargrave . The budget of This movie is only 65 million and it was produced by AGBO American film and Television production company led by Russo brothers and India take one production .
Why This Movie is Ridiculously Disturbing?
Usually, movies show law enforcement is the target of a terrorist group but in Extraction, the hero is shooting the police. The villain is the law enforcement agency of Bangladesh. How in an earth a countries entire law enforcement was called upon to assist a drug lord?
Bangladesh Army, Rab and police is the savior of the nation, they represent this proud Bengali Nationality. They are the symbol of justice in this nation. When a third-class movie shoots our nation’s heroes to rescue an Indian young kid. you just cant brand it as entertainment. It’s fell like propaganda, its smell like propaganda.
In this Movie you will find the biggest drug Lord in India is in jail and all of his assets seized by the Indian government. But in Bangladesh most of the law enforcement even army is controlled by the Bangladeshi drug Lord named Asif. This storyline is an insult to this nation. This movie also projects child soldiers or gang in Bangladesh.
Historically mass-scale drug mafia was never a reality in Bangladesh, Bangladesh doesn’t have any drug Lord like Mexico or Latin American country . Its a Muslim country and drug is religiously prohibited, only some petty smugglers do drug business. Bangladesh does have a politically motivated gang culture but it’s only for local or national politics. without some religious fanatics, no organized criminal gangs ever existed in Bangladesh.

Original Novel VS Movie
Extraction is based on a graphic novel named “Ciudad . The nobel Was based on the real Paraguayan city of Ciudad del Este. Where a mercenary hired to rescue an attractive young woman . But in this movie Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) is tasked to rescue a young boy from Bangladesh by killing all of its government police force and army soldiers .
If you exclude Chris from the cast, it isn’t even worth watching. Just like a third-class action movie from 1980 with a yellow filter and VFX.
The portrayal of Bangladeshi law enforcement as a villain character shows the poor judgment of storytelling. The storytelling is unfairly prejudiced probably in favor of the Indian audience. This movie probably a Propaganda production backed by a disciplined agency.
