We shouldn't see Gina Carano as someone who happens to appear in a pair of this year's worst action movies, but as one of the root causes of the horribleness, times two.
Just as in the recent crime thriller Heist, in the ridiculous spy story Extraction the former mixed martial artist and oaken, unschooled "actress" delivers dialogue with unprecedented stiffness.
In this highly concocted bit of CIA-based nonsense, she's met her uncharismatic match in the hunky former underwear model Kellan Lutz, who plays an upstart agent who punches people outstandingly and who wants to follow in his famous-spy father's footsteps (Kidnapped dad is played by a grim-faced Bruce Willis, who clearly no longer gives his career any damns at all.)
Lutz and fellow operative Carano are as warm and responsive as Ping-Pong paddles, batting lines back and forth lifelessly.
In a biker bar he tells her he has no plan, but that it's okay, because it "works in the movies."
No it doesn't.
Extraction? I'd rather have my teeth pulled by diseased, evil monkeys.
