How ‘Extraction’ Leaps Into Action | Anatomy of a Scene

by on

When a Hollywood stunt coordinator sets out to direct his first feature, he knows that the stunts had better be great. Sam Hargrave aimed to make it so by bringing the camera along for the wild ride in his Netflix thriller “Extraction,” starring Chris Hemsworth as a mercenary tasked with rescuing the kidnapped son of a crime lord.

This scene has Hemsworth, as Tyler Rake, trying to protect the boy, Ovi (Rudhraksh Jaiswal), from one of the movie’s many baddies, Saju (Randeep Hooda). It ain’t easy. The characters hop across rooftops, weave through narrow apartment hallways and conduct a knife fight in street traffic. The sequence, with some clever stitches, is meant to play out as one continuous shot, “1917”-style.

In his narration, Hargrave discusses not just directing, but also serving as the camera operator for these kinetic bits. He was attached to a wire as he leapt across buildings with his stunt doubles, then jumped from a balcony with them as well, all while trying not to miss the shot.

    Credit to the director for making a proper muscular action film without giving the Hemsworth character a chinese/african-american transgender comedy sidekick with identity issues. And that Da Vinci grade is sensational.

    I am shocked to see Netflix standard has gone down so much. This film was never shot in Bangladesh. The language is Indian Bangla……. there is a huge difference between Indian and Bangladeshi culture which the film director or the team failed completely to understand. I tell you friends, this is not the Bangladesh that is shown here. I just don't understand, if the movie is to be shot in India using all Indian crew why not the plot as well? Is it because Indian govt wouldn't approve? I feel pity for the new "stuntman to dirctor" and for those viewers who still think the movie rocks. For them, "Come and visit Dhaka……….. I'll be happy to show you the difference".
