Not sure on the accuracy of the story, but it does entertain and provides interesting insight on the underground culture of hackers...plenty of humor, suspense and crisp acting.

Super Reviewer

Having seen the Real documentary on Kevin Mitnik (Freedom Downtime) watching this gives you the sense that the writers and staff of this movies took themselves way too seriously. The "hacks" presented in the movie are poor at best with a lot of creative freedoms taken. This is how NOT to make an IT movie for the IT crowd but is a good view to inspire imagination and watch a crazy story

Take down has been un officically called "HACKERS 2 - The Story of Kevin Mitnick" who actually existed. This is a true story, which makes it oh so very cool.
