Watching, reading, listening, talking.

I watched Extraction (2020)

This wasn’t hugely clichéd but it was moderately so. Hero who’s depressed from the loss of a loved one? Check. Attractive female who looks good even in the middle of a firefight? Check. A kid who doesn’t trust the hero in the beginning but loves him by the end? Check.

The action sequences are pretty relentless, but the idea of making it look like each take was continuous only made the not-so-subtle cut points stand out more to my eye. The “bad guys” suffer from the usual poor aim, missing our hero even when his back is turned, only for him to spin round and make the near-perfect shot.

And the ending? Fuuuuuck off!
