TAKE DOWN focuses on the reckless sons and daughters of international billionaires, who have been sent by their frustrated parents to an exclusive, tough-love boot camp on a remote island, where they will be taught basic survival skills in the hope it will teach them to take responsibility for their lives. When they are taken hostage and held for a billion dollar ransom by a group of sophisticated kidnappers, the young captives suddenly need every ounce of their brief training to survive.

Did You Know?

Trivia

The lighthouse shown near the start, and titled "West Soay, Scotland" is actually South Stack lighthouse on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales. It is an Isle of Man/Welsh production after all. Although the footbridge is now closed to the public, you can still walk down (and back up) the 365 stone steps that zig-zag up the cliff face. See more »

Goofs

Numerous times during the course of the film, when the actors are walking through the water or through the forest - after they come out and reach land, in the next scene their clothes are dry as well as their hair. See more »

Better than expected
19 December 2019 | by thatmaninblackSee all my reviews

I thought it's going to be a weak "B" movie, but I guess I was wrong.

The Cons:

A few minor issues in the and the "badguys" make some really rookie mistakes. The CGI is problematic when they shoot their guns. With blanks and fake blood, the movie would get even better. Too much shaky cam.

The Pros:

The acting is pretty solid, I think there is 1 famous actor in the movie, but the others are also played their roles excellent. I liked the plot too. Even though the movie is about spoiled rich kids, their characters become likable pretty fast. There were a few surprisingly shocking scenes, like the broken arm scene, the practical effect looked really convincing.

If you are bored and you have 90 mins to pass, give the movie a chance, it's worth watching.
