"The Making Of Extraction" Featurette
Commentary with Director Steven C. Miller and Actor Kellan Lutz
This is a good (not excellent) action film. It was interesting enough to hold my attention; however, it seemed to be very similar to many other films that I have seen. I like Bruce Willis (a steady action hero who has backed off a bit on the time that he is on screen) and Gina Carana (she is very cute and an excellent martial arts expert for real).
This is basically a rescue Bruce film with the main actor being a fellow named Kellan Lutz (unknown to me). The actors do okay with their parts; however, something seems to be missing. The storyline is a bit weak and direction appears to be just average.
The action is okay but there is nothing spectacular here.
I will probably not watch the film again. I can recommend it for one watching if you like Bruce and Gina.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Owned for 10 months when reviewed.
I bought this movie because it was cheap, had a good description, and came with a digital copy. It is okay... I did enjoy Bruce Willis as the father, but the acting was marginal at best. Still, some good action.
U.S. federal agents in Europe on a caper. Maybe they are CIA. We never heard or seen Kellan Lutz before, but he does a good job of trying to break into the field and get out of the office. Gina Carano is very good. Bruce Willis is phoning in his performance. A fairly good plot, but not going to enthrall you, just a nice way to pass the time.
I liked this movie because no one is superhuman in it. The main guy makes believable mistakes and bites off more than he can chew. The lead girl does NOT throw around guys twice her size, Black Widow style.
Visually, the lighting isn't very good and the scenes cut too frequently during the fight scenes.
Acting, plot, and flow were good.
