I remember the first two days of filming, sitting on the train… Snow, weather conditions, attempting to land a helicopter on a moving train, thinking 'How the hell are we going to do it?' And here we are, four to five months after doing all this and much, much more, and it's thanks to each one of you.

Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics upon release, the first film has become the most watched in Netflix history. In 2020 it surpassed other original titles of the streaming Colossus, reaching the homes of 99 million viewers and beating films like 6 Underground with Ryan Reynolds and The Irishman by Martin Scorsese.

Tyler Rake - this is the Italian title of the 'original - saw Hemsworth as the main character, a mercenary tasked with saving the son of an Indian drug lord, Ovi Mahajan, played by Rudhraksh Jaiswal, from his rival in Bangladesh. After Rake's team was betrayed and the rival crime lord put Bangladesh in solitary confinement, Rake had to guide Ovi across the city limits to take him to their new extraction point.
