    extraction was realistic lol?!

    couldn't even finish it tbh - terrible movie I thought.

    actually this simple google list is not bad and with better movies

    https://www.google.com/search?q=movies+like+extraction&oq=movies+like+ext&aqs=chrome.0.0j69i57j0l6.5364j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

    Triple Frontier was better I thought.

    If you want well-choreographed physical fights with some gunplay, check out The Raid. If you're more interested in the melee fights, try Chocolate and Ong-Bak. If you want some parkour added into the mix, check out District 13.

    Extraction is closer to John Wick than reality. ;)

    If you want something like Extraction, but better, watch Man on Fire.

    Elite Squad might be of interest. It's a Brazilian movie about the police raids on the favelas.

    Dredd is pretty well known, but I'll mention it for being pretty much wall to wall action. It has sci-fi elements, but the action is mostly gunplay.

    Hardcore Henry is a first person perspective actioner, with fairly relentless pacing.

    Michael Mann movies are pretty consistently good on this front, with Heat and Collateral stand outs.

    A combination of most of those movies :)

    Tony Jaa (Ong Bak)
    Iko Uwais (The Raid)
    Tiger Chen (stuntman mostly)
    Scott Adkins (every other movie ever made)
    Few MMA lads.

    its actually quite good, the MMA lads are not just cannon fodder.

    Everyone's mileage varies,but I was really disappointed by Triple Threat - with the cast it has, it should've been phenomenal, but I thought the fight choreography was really weak and basically amounted to "smaller wiry bloke with fantastic skills trying not to get squished by enormous bloke who does Hulk Smash". Comparing to e.g. Tony Jaa squaring off against an enormous Brazilian capoerista in The Warrior King/The Protector, I was sorely disappointed.

    I also thought it sadly telling that, even with a so-so script, the acting from the MMA lads was very much of the "sniff the fart" school whereas the three Uwais, Jaa and Chen actually put some effort in.
