Where was Extraction 2 filmed? We discuss the popular Netflix film and the filming locations used by the production team.
The first outing for, unfortunately, named Tyler Rake, was so successful that a sequel was commissioned, giving Hemsworth a role outside the MCU and away from super-heroics.
Hemsworth would slot into the role, embracing the more violent and gritty scenarios as a professional mercenary specializing in getting people out of places they shouldn’t be.
Some stunning set pieces and one-take action sequences proved Hemsworth was a worthy lead in this kind of movie. They were echoing classic action movies of the eighties and nineties, like Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, and First Blood.
This time around, Tyler has been missing and presumed dead after the events of the first movie and is brought into action again, but the stakes are higher this time around, and we get some more insight into the character and his motivations.
It’s safe to say that this second outing surpasses the first one, and it does look like the team behind Extraction is trying hard to build a franchise.
