I wanted this movie to push further than what it ended up being, if only because I can see the potential it had to get there.

Audience Reviews for Extracted


Movies like Extracted, have such potential, however mistakes in the story often become their downfall. Extracted is the story of a scientist who has developed a new technology, that allows him to temporary transfer his consciousness to another person. Once inside their head, he can see their memories and know their feelings. Of course the Government is interested in this technology for criminal justice purposes and pay the scientist to go into the mind of a murder suspect, to find out if he's guilty or not. Once inside, the scientist becomes trapped and must figure out a way to make the suspect aware of his presents, before he can figure a way out. The problem I had with this story is that the scientist becomes trapped the very first time he uses his invention. What scientist would ever use themselves as the guinea pig? Additionally, are we supposed to believe that the government would just drop a bundle of money on an untested technology? Once inside the mans head, we constantly see memories out of order and jump between scientist memories, suspect memories, and what's going on in the outside world, making for a very confusing film. Dominic Bogart stars as the suspect and really does a nice job, however the scientist, played by Sasha Roiz wasn't nearly as believable. Extracted had a great story to work with, but a mediocre star, with a confusing timeline, making it nearly impossible to follow. I loved the premise, the investigation was interesting, and Dominic Bogart was really good, but all those things weren't enough to save an otherwise confusing and uneven film.

An Independent film that I found myself immensely drawn into right from the beginning. It was well done, intriguing, and a fine example of how to make a movie...with great start, climax, and a completely wrapped up ending. Good job...

A scientist develops a machine that can enter other people's memories, but on the first trial something goes wrong and he finds himself trapped in the mind of a heroin addict accused of murdering his girlfriend. A game and competent cast and crew do their best on a limited budget, but the script isn't quite smart enough to either convince us or to explore the most interesting implications of the technology.
