Don't extract your wallet for Extraction: review



1.5 out of 4 stars

Starring Kellan Lutz, Bruce Willis. Directed by Steven C. Miller. 83 minutes. in limited release. 14A.


There’s something about Extraction that feels like it was made on the cheap.

It’s not just that much of the action is set in and around unglamorous Newark, New Jersey or the terse 83-minute running time.

Landing a star like Bruce Willis to play an ex-CIA spook kidnapped by terrorists probably cost a bundle, which may explain why his total screen time is so brief and his character is more taciturn than usual. Did he get paid by the word?

Kellan Lutz plays son Harry who, with fellow spy Victoria (Gina Carano), sets out to rescue not-so-dear old dad. Onscreen chemistry between the two is in short supply and the fight scenes feel like chop-socky lite.

If money is tight for you, dear moviegoer, save it for a better film.
