The Crime Was Only the Beginning.
After surviving a violent hijacking, an armored car driver struggles with a painful recovery and his growing obsession with avenging his assailants.

"...a gripping little thriller that boasts a surprisingly strong performance from John Leguizamo...  David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"...[a] compelling story...some nifty touches from a young director...and a lead performance by John Leguizamo that's really quite excellent.  Scott Weinberg, Cinematical

Editor's Note
Criminals learn that they may have messed with the wrong man in this thriller starring John Leguizamo, Tyrese Gibson, and Bobby Cannavale. Leguizamo (EMPIRE) plays Felix De La Pena, a man just trying to survive in East L.A. when he is carjacked by a violent criminal (Gibson, FOUR BROTHERS). Soon Felix learns that his experience wasn't an isolated incident, and he begins to search for the men behind the scheme before he becomes a suspect for their crimes. Rosie Perez (DO THE RIGHT THING) costars as Felix's wife.

Professional Reviews

Los Angeles Times
"Leguizamo is captivating....Director Brad Furman, in his feature film debut, uses discipline and empathy to put the viewer in Felix's shoes." 04/11/2008

Variety
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...In one of the stronger showings of his career, Leguizamo is Felix Delgado, a hardworking family man whose routine life as an armored-car guard is sent crashing after he's abducted and shot in the head. His memory damaged, Felix spends much of the film trying to reconstruct the robbery that left his co-workers dead, while a sympathetic FBI agent (a terrific Bobby Cannavale) tries not to arrest him, despite the fact that every lead points to Felix...Leguizamo avoids any sticky "Rain Man" affectations; the key manifestation of Felix's injury is anger, born of frustration and vented on those around him. It seems an accurate depiction of a head trauma victim, and Leguizamo manages to make Felix's struggles convincing even as he investigates the murderous hijacking...Perez has some very effecting scenes as Felix' wife, Marina -- it's when she gets fed up, scared and leaves with the kids that Felix turns into an avenging brain-damaged angel and gets into payback mode, storming across the city, looking for the thug who ruined his life. - John Anderson
