Tyler finds a purpose for his time and takes up the offer, but it is not without risks. In an attempt that caused a full-scale prison riot and a direct conflict with a ruthless mafia gang, Tyler manages to bring the family and lead them to a safe space. He also crosses paths with his ex-wife Mia (played by Olga Kurylenko). As the two estranged partners meet once again, there is a lot of guilt absolution, and reconciliation between the two.

Unfortunately, Yaz loses his life in this battle. Sam has a close brush with death but manages to survive yet again. At the end of the movie, we see that he and Nik are in prison where Nik is on life support. But both of them are taken out of prison by the mysterious man and Tyler is asked to look forward to more jobs in the future.

Extraction 2 Review

Extraction 2 delivers its high-octane action promise after a stunning show we witnessed in its predecessor. The classic Sam Hargrave “one take” sequence was again seen in the movie. The action scenes did not seem like a mishmash despite the rapid and volatile nature of the events unfolding.

Despite being an action-heavy movie, this Sam Hargrave directorial manages to provide a seemingly palatable plot. We find Tyler’s character getting closure about his son’s loss after he meets his ex-wife. Yaz died in the skirmish but not before leading Tyler to a successful mission. It remains to be seen how Nik recovers from this skirmish. Perhaps one person getting fatally wounded and landing in a coma after every job might just become an Extraction movie tradition!

If the ending is anything to go by, a third movie in the Extraction series might just be a possibility! When Idris Elba’s character in the movie meets with Tyler in the end, he mentions he has a “gnarly boss”. This serves as a good hint for what we can expect in the next installment. With Yaz out of the picture and Nik on life support, Tyler needs a new team member to work with, and Idris Elba’s character and his boss might just be those! Are you excited about what happens next in Tyler Rake’s life?
