More Detail:

EXTRACTION follows a troubled black-market mercenary who travels to India to rescue a drug lord’s son who’s been kidnapped. EXTRACTION has a light moral worldview with some redemptive elements, but the action violence is constant and too graphic, and the movie contains lots of strong foul language.

EXTRACTION begins on a sort of somber note as a young Indian boy named Ovi leads a life full of isolation and strict rules. Ovi’s father is a major drug lord and in prison for his crimes. Because of this, Ovi’s life is under constant surveillance by both people who want what’s best for him and those who don’t.

After Ovi sneaks out of the house one night to meet up with friends, his father’s enemies kidnap him and kill his friend in an alley. Enter Tyler Rake.

Tyler Rake is an Australian black-market mercenary with a complicated past, but viewers don’t know that just yet. Nik, a female, comes to Tyler with a job: to rescue Ovi and bring him to safety. Tyler is hesitant at first but ultimately decides to travel to India to help.

Once there, Tyler easily finds Ovi with a bag over his head in a small room guarded by armed men. To Tyler’s advantage, his combat skills give him the upper hand, and he defeats them all, some by killing, others by injuring. One Indian child shows up on the scene with a gun, but Tyler shows him mercy and tells him to scatter. Ovi and Tyler take off with the intent to meet Nik and get Ovi to safety.

Still, Ovi is a hot commodity for many. Consequently, Tyler and Ovi don’t know who to trust. At one point, they end up in what they think is a safe location, only for an old friend of Tyler’s, Gaspar, to turn on Ovi and try to convince Tyler that he should just kill the boy. Things, once again, turn violent, and Ovi winds up shooting Gaspar to protect his friend Tyler.

With no one to trust but each other, will Tyler and Ovi come out on the other side of their obstacles?
