Good. But you'll have to do a lot of suspension of disbelief. If you do, it's fun. And for fuck sakes give Idris Elba his own thriller à la Liam Neeson in Taken.
It's non stop action and most of it is rollicking. A cliché but still watchable.
Just an average film. Good action but totally nothing special
Whilst the great mystery is why Idris Elba keeps getting substandard roles, this is a roller coaster of ride until the plot falls off the edge of the world at the end.
A good enough film for a wet Sunday.
Waste of a great actor and overall good cast on a terrible convoluted script just written to have a lot of things happening. If you really wanna see Idris Elba proving his worth as an action star...watch it...otherwise skip.
Pretty good. Not great. Worth seeing once.
The Take is a thriller about a pick pocketer who is caught in a middle of terrorist attack in the middle of Paris France with plenty of plot twists. Idris Elba plays a CIA agent, who works with French Police and the pick pocketer to bring order to the mayhem. I would believe Elba would be the next Bond with his performance, this movie was a mix between Bond, 24 and Taken. It was well filmed with an okay script but Elba was the star of the movie. It was good to watch once.
Great action film! Idris Elba very watchable as is Richard Madden. Interesting storyline set in Paris.. Loved it!
Fun action flick set in France
This movie also titled “The Take”, has plenty of action and surprises. Overall a well done low budget movie.
Oh my god - what?!! The only reason this movie is not a minus five stars is because Idris Elba is in it and does as much as he can to save a weak script and foolish directing. Aside from the fact that this action flick is based on a situation that even a adolescent wouldn't buy, the filming is all over the place and disjointed. From the rooftop foot chase to the all-out brawl in the back of a moving van, the only bruised up characters are the cops who got served up in the beginning of the movie. What more can I say - oh, I know - stupid, stupid, stupid. That's all. Idris must have need an extra paycheck...
