    Extraction

    ★★★

    Hargrave is clearly most comfortable working within the action framework, and there’s a thrilling sense of joy to be had even amidst the hyper-violence, especially in how there seems to be a complete lack of attention paid to the frenetic gun and knife fights by the crowds of pedestrians nonchalantly going about their business. But where films like John Wick or Atomic Blonde or Dredd balance brutality with a winking narrative, the connective tissue here is deadly serious, contributing to a level of nihilism that threatens to suffocate as Extraction reaches its final climactic setpiece.

    Blue Valentine, but with jokes.
