      Simon Abrams RogerEbert.com Elba's magnetic physical presence delivers so much without doing much of anything. But his fans deserve so much better than a couple of dumb quips and a little ultra-violence. Rated: 1/4 Nov 18, 2016 Full Review Joey Nolfi Entertainment Weekly Most of The Take's moving parts feel like spinning cogs, devoid of fit or function. Rated: C Nov 17, 2016 Full Review Neil Genzlinger New York Times Yes, it's uncomfortable watching a terror-themed tale in a city that so recently dealt with real terrorism. But if you can get past that, the movie sweeps you along with a brisk pace and even dashes of humor. Nov 17, 2016 Full Review Graeme Tuckett Stuff.co.nz [The movie] falls to bits pretty badly in the home-straight and the story tosses any credibility out the window. But, by that time, the film has earned enough goodwill that you'll be prepared to just sit back and enjoy it until the credits roll. Jul 19, 2023 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a stirring premise that’s employed to watchable yet far-from-spectacular effect... Rated: 2.5/4 Jan 6, 2023 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut By all accounts, this by-the-numbers buddy-cop movie should have stayed hidden on the top shelf where it has been left for the past four years.

      Robert K An unimaginative set peice that somehow still manages to fail at casting any sort of shadow of its own. Idris Elba is a fine actor and played his part as expected. Richard Madden's emotional expressions felt crowbarred out of him at points. Predictable twists. Disappointing. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review K. J Terrible movie. So low rent on every level. Utterly unbelievable. Cartoon characters. Bad script. Bad acting. How do projects like this get the green light? Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/11/24 Full Review R 9 Pretty good, for what it is. 'Bastille Day', or 'The Take' for us in my neck of the woods, is a sound action thriller that suitably entertains. Idris Elba has played this sorta role many a time but there's no doubting how strongly he performs in such films. He and co-star Richard Madden are sporting distracting (at least to someone who knows them more for their native tongue) accents, but are a solid pairing... their (admittedly somewhat minimal) buddy cop-esque banter isn't the best, though. Elba also appears in the end credits singing... not to great effect, I gotta say. Don't get me wrong I know that guy can very much do music, it's just that this song is, erm, not his strongest work, let's just say that. It's largely predictable, though it does things in a manner that kept me interested and enjoying what I was setting eyes on. So it gets a pass from yours truly. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review Travis W The best and most reliable crypto recovery expert service for me ever goes to CYBER GENIE HACK PRO! Wow; these guys are so good at their job and their customer service relationship is so friendly and reliable. I made a huge error with a transaction at work, sending $68,000 worth of BTC to the wrong wallet address. Tension arose and I was literally shaking even while I searched online for a possible solution. I contacted the customer support of the wallet address provider but they said they couldn't help. I was about to pay my company money I never spent till I read something about CYBER GENIE HACK PRO Recovery services and I immediately contacted them. Because the money hadn't been withdrawn and contacted on time, they were able to retrace the transaction, and the money was credited back to the company's wallet swiftly. How would I have explained to the company I am innocent, CYBER GENIE saved my life. "http: // cybergeniehackpro (.) x y z " (+12)(5)(25)(12)(03)(91).. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/26/23 Full Review Fort P Loved it! Great action! Richard Madden & Idris Elba! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/15/23 Full Review Timothy D The Take is far from original or mind blowing, but Elba and Madden turn this basic action thriller into an entertaining experience.
