I have seen action on screen in all its forms. Whether it was Bruce Willis fighting Germans in a building or Steven Seagal killing rouge Navy Mercenaries on a boat, I've seen it. However for the past few years, aside from legendary actioneers like Stallone or Schwarzenegger keeping the genre alive, action film have gone really downhill. It is a category of film making that has almost disappeared entirely because of guys like Peter Berg and Louis Leterrier, who instead of having quality actors doing real stunts in places other people wouldn't think possible, they place pretty boys like Jamie Foxx and Sam Worthington into lackluster scenarios and just let their doubles do the work while they capture the "action" with the most annoyingly shaky camera work in order to make the action more "realistic." Ironically enough however, in reality, its all BS. Now in comes Tony Giglio, writer and director of the amazingly underrated 2005 action thriller Chaos, with his new film Extraction, a old-school die hard action film that pulls no punches, literately. The fight sequences make guys like Jason Bourne look too liberal. It is hard to believe a film that was shot in 18 days and made on only a million dollars could come out this good and deliver action as rock solid as this. With almost no CGI and some of the greatest martial art scenes ever filmed, fans of the right kind of action movies will dig Extraction. With cool performances by Vinnie Jones and Jon Foo, this is Die Hard meets Delta Force meets the Raid: Redemption. In summation folks, why Tony Giglio isn't directing Expendables 3, I'll never know.
