Nice surprise.
21 October 2013 | by TehmehSee all my reviews

There's no way for "Extracted" to avoid comparisons to "Inception". So let's just get it out of the way. There's plenty of similarities, no denying that. Is this a ripoff? No, it isn't.

While "Inception" had plenty of CGI and useless action scenes, this movie is more down to earth. Nothing too ambitious, as most of the scenes consist of...conversation. Just good old-fashioned dialogue and a simple story going from A to B. Also, we don't get "WAS IT ALL JUST A DREAM" - type of ambiguity just for the sake of ambiguity. There is one scene that some people might call a twist, but it fits, it's not forced and neither ruins or makes the movie.

The script is fine. I would've liked it to have squeezed more SciFi and drama into the story and perhaps it wasn't as challenging as I would've liked, but it works nonetheless. It's clever enough and focuses on what's important. Directing compliments the script and vice versa.

The main actors do a pretty good job.

This isn't a modern classic for me, but I liked it enough to recommend it for a rainy day. Unlike "Inception", though not being nearly as ambitious as a production, "Extracted" gave me a story where things that I can care about are at stake, and then it rewarded me with a satisfying ending (while not forcing any pretentious ambiguity down my throat). It did its job.
