  • Summary: John Leguizamo plays Felix, a loving family man who is thrust into the middle of a dangerous armed robbery when his truck is hijacked.

    Framed and left for dead by Adell, Tyrese Gibson's character at the crime scene, Felix miraculously survives the violent attack--only to have his life
    irrevocably changed.

    What is the true price of justice? When FBI Agents Perelli (Bobby Cannavale) and Baxter (Matthew Hatchette) suspect this may be an inside job, Felix must risk losing his family and wife (Rosie Perez) forever, descending into the underbelly of East LA to clear his name, as well as exact revenge.

    Leguizamo knocks it out of the park as an armored car driver in The Take.
  2. Reviewed by: Rachel Saltz
    Occasionally the visuals seem overly stylized, but Mr. Furman knows enough to showcase his stars’ unvarnished performances.
  3. Reviewed by: John Anderson
    An unlikely but entertaining amalgam of "Heat," "Memento" and "Regarding Henry," Brad Furman's streetwise caper drama The Take is elevated by the potent performances of John Leguizamo and Rosie Perez and a momentum that seldom stops.

    If you were going to show what happens to a man who loses the best part of himself, you'd want to cast John Leguizamo, who has spent his career leaping from one extreme characterization to another.
  5. Reviewed by: Chuck Wilson
    Furman draws superb performances from Leguizamo and Perez, two actors whose hyperactive energy has often been a distraction. Here, they're centered and completely believable as a hardworking couple whose life has been turned inside out.
  6. Reviewed by: John DeFore
    The plot holds no surprises, but the eventual climactic foot chase and showdown suffice (if barely) to satisfy genre expectations.
  7. The story does feel a little threadbare, and much of the pacing is far too slow for a suspense thriller. But Perez and Leguizamo make an entirely believable couple.
