Netflix’s Extraction 2 is expected to be an exciting continuation of the first Extraction movie. Also, it has the potential to become another great action series in Chris Hemsworth’s career. In Extraction, Hemsworth plays a soldier-for-hire who is hired to save and protect a crime lord’s son. The movie is directed by Sam Hargrave and is based on a graphic novel called Ciudad. Since its release, Extraction has received mixed reviews. Critics have praised the action and stunts but criticized the thin storyline. However, it is this unique blend of intense action and stunts that have allowed Extraction to be compared to popular franchises like John Wick, which are known for their impressive gun-fighting scenes.
The director of Extraction and Extraction 2 is Sam Hargrave. He has worked as a stunt performer and coordinator on movies like Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Extraction was his first movie as a director. However, one of the most impressive parts of Extraction was a 12-minute car chase and gun battle scene. The trailer for Extraction 2 hints at a similarly exciting experience. The ending of Extraction left Tyler’s fate uncertain. However, the trailer for Extraction 2 confirms that Chris Hemsworth will be returning for the sequel. Netflix has shared some updates on Extraction 2, but details are limited.
Netflix unveiled the official teaser trailer for Extraction 2 on April 3, 2023.
The two-minute teaser trailer for Extraction 2, although not revealing much about the story, confirms that Tyler Rake, the protagonist, survived the events of the first film. It suggests that he was declared clinically dead but managed to come back to life through sheer determination and resilience. The trailer showcases an intense fight scene where Rake fights armed guards during a prison riot, with his fist engulfed in flames. It concludes with a gripping moment as Rake is seen on top of a moving train, engaging in a gun battle with an enemy helicopter.

What would be the plot of Extraction 2?
In the first “Extraction,” Chris Hemsworth’s Tyler Rake was tasked with rescuing the kidnapped son of an Indian crime lord. Now, he’s returning to action, taking on another life-threatening job. According to the official plot description, following his near-death experience in the previous film, Tyler Rake returns as the Australian black ops mercenary in Extraction 2. He is entrusted with a new and perilous mission, which involves rescuing the vulnerable family of a merciless Georgian gangster from their confinement in a prison.
While trying to save the mentioned family, Rake will be caught in a prison riot that has spiraled out of control. In this part of the movie, Rake will fight against heavily protected guards who are trying to control the riot. They use shields, batons, and even Molotov cocktails as weapons. In an interview with Empire Magazine, director Sam Hargrave shared details about an impressive fight sequence in Extraction 2. He also revealed that this particular scene lasts for 21 minutes without any cuts, surpassing the length of the one-take action sequence from the previous film. Although Hargrave acknowledged that the fight scene is composed of multiple extended segments edited together to create the illusion of continuous action, it is worth noting that Chris Hemsworth’s arm is actually set on fire during this extraordinary action sequence.
