- Chris Hemsworth has a unique way of staying safe during a scene in “Extraction 2.”
- During a 21-minute single-shot action sequence, Hemsworth’s character hides behind a ladder to avoid being shot.
- One viewer spotted it and it’s led to lots of comments online.
If there’s one thing an action star needs, it’s the ability to be bulletproof when everything gets nuts — and Chris Hemsworth looks to have that trait in “Extraction 2.”
The hit Netflix original actioner once again features Hemsworth as mercenary Tyler Rake on a new mission. And like any sequel, everything is bigger. In this case, that means the inclusion of a jaw-dropping 21-minute single-shot action sequence.
And one eagle-eyed viewer has highlighted a moment in that long take when Rake uses a unique tactic to keep from getting shot.
While on a speeding train trying to escape the bad guys, Rake opens a door in a sidecar, finding himself face-to-face with a helicopter sporting a massive machine gun.
To save himself, Rake takes cover… behind a ladder.

The moment, tweeted out by @mnrrntt, has been viewed over 1 million times and has received some hilarious reactions.
One responded: “Fun fact: The gaps between ladder rungs are bulletproof.”
Another pointed out that, just minutes later in the same sequence, Rake again doesn’t need to protect himself from bullets as he gets on top of the train to exchange gunfire with another helicopter.

Hemsworth told “Good Morning America” that the 21-minute “oner” took “about six weeks” to shoot and featured close to 400 extras to pull off.
“Extraction 2” is available now on Netflix.
