Extraction 2 Chris Hemsworth is back in the danger zone as Tyler Rake. Battling back from the brink of death, Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) must confront his past to take on his most dangerous mission yet in Extraction 2.
Extraction 2 is a 2023 American action thriller film directed by Sam Hargrave and written by Joe Russo, based on the graphic novel Ciudad by Ande Parks, Joe Russo, Anthony Russo, Fernando León González, and Eric Skillman. It is a sequel to the 2020 film Extraction, and Chris Hemsworth, Golshifteh Farahani and Adam Bessa reprise their roles, with Olga Kurylenko, Daniel Bernhardt, Tinatin Dalakishvili and Idris Elba joining the cast.
Chris Hemsworth returns for Netflix’s expanding Extraction franchise, his muppety-handsome features squished into an expression of resolve with a soupçon of compassion. He appears to be wound up by a large key inserted into the gap between his shoulder blades. Extraction 2 Hemsworth reprises his role as Tyler Rake, the tough guy mercenary with a golden heart who we kind of assumed was dead at the end of the previous movie but turns out to have been just very very unwell, in the latest action film from screenwriter Joe Russo and director Sam Hargrave.
After spending some time in a posh, private hospital in Dubai, Tyler is restored to health and is flown in to save his ex-wife’s sister and her children from her abusive Georgian mob-boss husband. The film opens with the discovery and remediation of Rake’s quasi-corpse.
(That ex-wife must have a lot of money, incidentally, to support this sort of enterprise.) Although kicking ass isn’t exactly Golshifteh Farahani’s strong suit, his handler Nik (back in the picture) is doing a lot more actual combat this time around, including close-quarters martial arts maneuvers and stabbing bad men in the leg with a little serrated knife. Although it isn’t in the same league as Tom Cruise, Extraction 2 our hero also performs a good amount of dangling down the side of really tall, sleek glass structures.

After surviving a perilous assignment in Bangladesh, mercenary Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth) decides to retire. He is, however, approached by a total stranger (Iris Elba) who begs him to free Ketevan (Tinatin Dalakishvili), his ex-wife Mia’s (Olga Kurylenko) jailed sister, so that she can be reunited with her kids Sandro (Andro Japardize) and Nina (Marta Kovziashvili). Tyler begins his quest after agreeing to release them from the jail. Extraction 2 Who put Ketevan and the kids in jail? What is Zurab’s role in the expedition and who is Zurab (Tornike Gogrichiani)?
