Felix De La Pena (John Leguizamo) is going about his daily routine as a husband and father who also happens to be an armored car driver. He’s hijacked and held hostage by thugs that use him to get everything his company has.

They not only shoot him and leave him for dead, but frame him for doing the job as well. They never counted on his survival, though.

Leguizamo’s performance is compelling and heartfelt. He gives one of the best performances of his career as a victim recovering from head trauma while being suspected by the F.B.I. as the perpetrator of the crime that caused his world to fall apart.

Rosie Perez keeps up with him step for step as his devoted wife, Marina.

The Take is an engaging film that shows the strength of family and devotion through ordinary people surviving extraordinary circumstances.

Grade: A

The Take releases in select theaters April 11.
