Must-watch movies on Netflix: Extraction

Release Year: 2020

Directed By: Sam Hargrave

Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Rudhrasksh Jaiswal, Randeep Hooda, Golshifteh Farahni, Pankaj Tripathi, David Harbour

Even though theatrical movie release mostly came to a screeching halt in 2020, Netflix was still able to offer up some fresh entertainment during quarantine. Extraction became one of the streaming service’s biggest hit original films of all time. Chris Hemsworth stars in Extraction as Tyler Rake, a black ops mercenary with nothing left to lose. He finds himself tasked with kidnapping an imprisoned crime lord’s son, but the risky and potentially fatal mission becomes all the more dangerous in the unpredictably dark underworld of weapons and drugs.

Extraction first premiered on Netflix on April 24, 2020 but wasn’t an instant of a hit with critics as it was with viewers. The film holds a middling but mostly positive rating of 67% on Rotten Tomatoes, though that figure didn’t deter binge-watchers from watching. Extraction clocked in with a premiere audience of 99 households in its first month of release, easily earning the highest numbers in Netflix original film history. Naturally, writer Joe Russo has started developing a sequel with the director and Hemsworth anticipated to return. You simply can’t miss this blockbuster!
