The Take (Jonas Pate, 2007)

The rap on The Take is that it’s already set to launch for real on DVD; this trailer exists only for the limited number of screens it’ll open on in order to justify a theatrical release. And that kind of rap usually means you should expect the latest installment of the Poison Ivy series instead of a grainy, gritty street thriller in the style of Harsh Times or even Death Sentence. Still, as it moves along, it’s pretty clear that Leguizamo is totally acting his face off, and Bobby Cannavale may or may not be the Cuban/Italian Chazz Palminteri. It’s not like we’re lining up at the theater. But The Take just might end up in our Netflix. — Johnny Loftus
