Extortion (2017) Reviews

  • Better Than I Expected


    I didn't know what to expect from this film with no reviews posted as I write this. What I found was a thriller that contained wild twists and turns as it progressed, but which also contained, at times, such highly implausible plot elements that I found myself shaking my head in disbelief. Eion Bailey stars here as Dr. Kevin Riley, who is about to embark on a much anticipated Caribbean vacation with his wife Jules (Bethany Joy Lenz) and their six-year-old son Andy (Mauricio E. Alemany). Upon arrival,they rent a boat from a local, but, at the urging of Andy, end up exploring a deserted island far out at sea. However, with their outboard motor failing and with no food or water, they will find themselves in a most precarious and dangerous predicament. From there, a series of wild and life threatening events will begin, and without writing too many spoilers I will say that a local fisherman named Miguel sees a golden opportunity for extortion here. Barkhad Abdi, who was nominated for and won numerous awards for his motion picture debut in "Captain Phillips" again turns in an amazing and most believable performance as Miguel. Overall, this movie, written and directed by Phil Volken, was better than I anticipated and certainly kept my attention throughout, but be prepared for some extremely implausible plot elements along the way.

  • far from a B movie


    I read a few of the reviews who hated the movie. "how did this make it to Netflix?" - I can tell you how :) It is entertaining. I read people complaining about how unrealistic the movies are. But those are the same kinds of people who love the Transformers series :) Not saying the movie is unrealistic, but let's face it. It's a movie, not a documentary. There are a few plot holes, I give you that. But as a software engineer I just roll my eyes when someone 'hacks into a system' (again) in some movie for the sake of storytelling. I do not need every single detail of the movie to be well researched. Which is why it is a movie. So much about the disclaimer :) The movie itself is good. Main characters do a great job, it takes you around a few turns in the Caribbean - and the overall message of the movie is great. Family matters more than money. I rate it 7/10 because of the things that other people actually hated the movie for. I liked it, I just consider those gaps in research 'flaws', not total failures :) It is definitely worth watching. It is well cast and entertainingly written and filmed. It's far from a B-movie or a low-budget production. Whoever calls this low-budget doesn't know the first thing about production value.

  • unrealistic, poorly written


    This movie is horrible, poorly written, very unrealistic. ****Spoiler alert**** Unbelievable things that happen in this movie. 1. The Spanish captain getting hit by a truck on an empty street. 2. The Spanish captain pointing to the island on his last dying breath 3. The dad finding the Spanish captain on the exact same bus he randomly got on. 4. The spear going off, then killing the daughter, then stabbing the dad, after it was being laid down on a table gently. 5. The dad not being able to carry the wife to the boat, which is 10 more feet. 6. The dad using CPR to save his son from Starvation/Dehydration. 7. The dad escaping 4 police officers after his wrestles a gun from one as he is recovering from a stab wound. 8. The villain asking for 1 million dollars to begin with. 9. Him negotiating with police after he is wanted for a double murder. Everyone giving this movie good reviews need to rethink if any thing in this movie is actually possible.

  • Nothing new, but good work


    I caught myself being engaged from the start, things unfold just about how you'd expect in this type of movie although you don't know exactly, we've seen it all before, but it is done alright. Engaged, never bored, but never mindblown. The fugitive 'light' in the Caribbean, not much else to say. Polished feel. Well-deserved 7/10.

  • Cheesy low budget waste of time


    Obvious, cheesy low budget movie. Acting is poor, the plot is predictable and not logical. Don't be fooled by the trailer, this movie is complete disaster. It is so predictable and unrealistic. At one point I had to stop watching because the movie got out of control. The camera is terrible as well, I felt dizzy at times.
