    I am really not sure if this was the first Full Wrestling Movie ever made, but for me it was my first to watch. My High School Wrestling Team from Mark Keppel got to go to a Screener before it was released some the cast where there signing autographs so for me "Take Down" is a must see if your a Wrestler along with "Vision Quest" and "reversal". By the way my 7 yr old son Bobby is a bad as Grappler Robert Perez Jr. President of: "American Born Grappler - Born On The Mat". Long Beach Ca
