    Another preachy, overacted message film that owes its out-of-time structure to "21 Grams" and "Babel," except writer-director Charles Oliver uses the idea of restorative justice. show more

    Well, you can't fault the actors. That must mean it's the fault of the writer and director. Take is a monotonous slog through dirgeland, telling a story that seems strung out beyond all reason, with flashbacks upon flashbacks delaying interminably the underwhelming climax. show more

    In the end, Take is too enamored of its time-shifting gimmick and cheap suspense to ultimately have much impact. show more

    Take has the audacity to excuse its bad cinematic habits as figments of both Saul and Ana's imaginations. show more

    Subjective or not, the movie is a bore and an eyesore. show more

    This was such a great movie!!!! I went to see it in NY last weekend, and it was so moving. I loved how the movie dealt with the issues of forgiveness and restoritive justice. Overall, AMAZING movie, powerful, and moving!!!
