The Chris Hemsworth-starrer, 'Extraction' debuted on April 24 on Netflix to positive critical acclaim. The violent and bloody crime-thriller saw Hemsworth play Tyler Rake, a black market mercenary on a mission to Dhaka to rescue the teenage son of an Indian ganglord.

Played by Rudraksh Jaiswal, Ovi is abducted by his father's nemesis, Amir Asif (Priyanshu Painyuli) and the onus is on Rake to extract the boy and bring him back.

On Saturday, May 2, Hemsworth took to Instagram to offer a "massive thank you" to his fans for checking out 'Extraction' and making it "the #1 film" on the streaming platform.

As far as supporting the theory of the slambang action-packed film taking in top spot goes, Indiewire listed the film as No1 in Netflix's list of most-viewed films this week.
