Buy it... if you fell in love with the magnificent grandeur and ethnic beauty of Henry Jackman's music for Captain Phillips, in which case this work will induce a similarly warm, tingling feeling in your loins.

Avoid it... if you wonder why so many Americans feel aggrieved, isolated, and misunderstood; this bleak, angry music helps feed their worst inclinations about race and violence.

Extraction: (Henry Jackman/Alex Belcher) The purpose of the 2020 Netflix original film Extraction was for first-time director and veteran stuntman Sam Hargrave to show people performing awesome stunts in a violent action environment. And that was all he accomplished, because everything else about the movie was unnecessary and gruesome, depicting Bangladesh and its capital, Dhaka, in a wretched light and glorifying all the worst Western stereotypes about how terrible a place it is. (Ironically, the movie was shot almost entirely in Thailand, as Westerners wouldn't know the difference.) The plot involves two rival drug lords of the region and the kidnapping of one of their sons. Chris Hemsworth is a mercenary hired to extract the boy, extending the white savior concept as he leaves trails of bodies in his wake. The angry, repeatedly double-crossed white dude must kick godless Bangladeshi ass, and don't expect a clean, happy ending. Movies like Extraction are the kind of pointless, violent entertainment that makes racist, ill-educated Americans hate the world and collect more weapons, with nothing redeeming about the script and no depiction of how to improve the world except by efficiently killing brown people. Unfortunately, Extraction became the highest viewed Netflix original film of all time and was among the service's most popular attractions of 2020, perfect entertainment for aggrieved Donald J. Trump voters stuck at home because of "unfair" pandemic lockdowns. Composer Henry Jackman and his associate, Alex Belcher, who has been receiving formal co-compositional credit on Jackman scores as of late, had worked with producers Joe and Anthony Russo on 2019's underwhelming 21 Bridges and return here. The result of their efforts is exactly as expected for the topic and the budget: a grim, Remote Control-inspired, atmospheric score with aspirations to emulate John Powell's production in exotic chase thrillers. If the film is designed to make you feel worse about the world, then Jackman and Belcher succeed in providing music that accomplishes the same. As music, there's really nothing of interest to behold in its instrumentation and constructs. The composers earned their paycheck and nothing more. But as a generic tool of atmosphere, it does indeed drop a turd in any punchbowl as well, so if you have a dire need for music to turn your day sour, Jackman and Belcher offer you this remarkably bleak tool of disillusion and despair.
