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.Written by

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 »
Once again I am shocked at the low 5.3 average score for this movie.
I'm hoping once people read my review, they will rate this movie appropriately.
I gave this one a 9. Why? Because you can't compare apples to oranges. What I mean by that is a movie needs to be rated on the investment/production value as well as entertainment.
Let me explain; Let's take Barber Shop 2 as an example (that has a 5.9 average). It has how many top rated actors (how many DON'T you know?) as well as a 20 million budget (which went where exactly?). Yet it was boring, biased, stupid, NOT funny etc...
Now take this movie... I didn't recognize any actors, budget was clearly low as it wasn't even disclosed, yet the story line was great, acting was good, the scenery was amazing, and I was pleasantly entertained!
If a movie has a high budget with A-list actors and top directors/producers and is terrible, it deserves a low score.
But going into a movie that is a B type movie with no name actors (of which the acting was not bad at all) and is made well and is entertaining, it needs to be rated appropriately!
So hopefully everyone else who sees this enjoys it as much as I did and rates it accordingly.
