Extraction is a 2015 action-thriller film directed by Steven C. Miller, starring Kellan Lutz, Bruce Willis and Gina Carano. Noteworthy is the fact that both Lutz and Willis previously starred in The Expendables movies.

The film received a 6% "rotten" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and is widely considered to be one of Bruce Willis’ worst movies ever, even more so than A Good Day to Die Hard.

Plot

Former CIA agent Leonard Turner (Willis) is kidnapped by a group of terrorists. His son, Harry (Lutz), who is constantly denied from being a field agent, launches his own unsanctioned rescue mission. Along the way, he is joined by Victoria (Carano), a field agent who also happens to be his ex-girlfriend.

Why It Sucks

  1. Bad acting, even from people such as Willis.
  2. Willis' character only appears for a few minutes at the beginning and the end of the movie and is killed off in a very badly executed way.
  3. Annoyingly terrible soundtrack.
  4. Unbelievably generic, formulaic and clichéd storyline.
  5. Unconvincing chemistry between Harry and Victoria.
  6. Cheesy dialogue. For instance, Leonard tells a villain "Don't you ever threaten my family".
  7. Weightless action scenes that are badly staged and too obviously choreographed, lacking any sort of credibility.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Gina Carano as Victoria is by far the only best performance in this movie and Victoria is arguably the character with the most development in this movie.
