Chili Palmer (his nickname) was one of the military advisors for the hit Netflix film “Extraction” starring Chris Hemsworth. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, I have to say why not? If you are into excellent action movies with fantastic gunplay, then “Extraction” is for you. Too often Hollywood gets it wrong with things like taking the safety off a Glock or holding a pistol with a crazy grip. What about non-existent reloads?
All of this can take people in the know (like the folks of the Firearms Nation) out of the movie and walking away with a big thumbs down. Well, the producers of “Avenger’s Endgame” and “Captain America: Civil War” got it right. They hired Chili Palmer.
Chili was not the only advisor on the film but his contributions made the climax of the film stand out as one of the best action sequences in a long time. Watch it you’ll see what I mean.
The movie “Extraction” came out last weekend and after watching it, I reached out to Chili who graciously accepted to come on and share some of his experiences and participating on the set.
Chili served in the Army for 25 years and had over 13 deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq. His first mission was the historic raid in Panama taking in the corrupt Manuel Noriega into custody. Chili served in the Unit alongside Kyle Lamb, who happened to be on last week’s episode and is an instructor for Viking Tactics as well.
