      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      A story of redemption held together with flashbacks, Take has moments of emotional intensity, but is ultimately undone by preachiness. Read critic reviews

        Winds up being nothing more than a totally bizarre propaganda campaign for Restorative Justice. I can handle that, but what lost me is the fact that at absolutely no point from beginning to end was I interested in the events, or in the characters.

        3 3/4's--This is a very slow movie, but for some reason I kept with it. I am glad that I did. I found it thought provoking, tragic, and moving. The tragic events of this movie will stick with me for some time, I imagine. I DO NOT, however, understand how they just wrote the dad out. I am assuming that somehow the marriage ended, and she was single by the end...

        In the present day, Saul(Jeremy Renner) is being prepared to be executed by lethal injection. In the past, he is a petty crook and gambler who works at a storage facility while taking care of his invalid father. He is also badly in need of $2,000. Ana(Minnier Driver), a maid, could also use a little extra cash. She has just been told that her son Jesse(Bobby Coleman) is being transferred to special education. To avoid that fate, she wants to send him to private school but receives little support from her husband Marty(David Denman, of "Drop Dead Diva"), himself a teacher. "Take" is a ponderous movie that lumbers towards its inescapable conclusion where two people have their lives changed in a fateful meeting. After which, there is a curious endnote praising restorative justice which long story short says that confrontation is good for the soul between convict and victim, forgetting for a second how many people are in jail for victimless crimes. And in this case, it only works one way as Saul is definitely beyond the point of no return. In fact, Jeremy Renner's sad sack performance seems to work towards the conclusion that Saul has no business being on death row(which personally I don't think anybody should be) which is a debate the movie ducks away from.
