What is the plot of Extraction 2?
The official synopsis of Extraction 2 reads:
“After surviving a massive battle in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Tyler Rake returns with serious wounds from the mission. He will be accompanied by his team, ready to take on the next mission. Tyler has been tasked with extracting the family, who is also at the mercy of a Georgian mobster. It appears that in order to protect them, Tyler has to penetrate one of the world’s most dangerous prisons. While the extraction is heating up and the gangster is being hunted down in Sydney, Rake and his squad have been hunting them down to exact revenge.”
In a conversation with Collider, Joe Russo mentioned that Extraction 2 “has a different colour schematic. It’s set in a different part of the world. It has a different pace and a different tone than the first one. And that, to us, is an interesting way to approach serializing a story, is that it’s more surprising and unexpected, and you’re not going to get the exact same movie that you got the last time out.”
