Goofs

At around 15:45 Ray is sitting at a table with his computer. In the background on the wall near the curtain is a piece of hardware called a "holdback", meant to hold the curtain when it is pulled back away from the window. It is mounted incorrectly. The hook should face concave toward the left. See more »

Potential laughs on the hostage genre
27 March 2018 | by aquascapeSee all my reviews

"Take Me" is an enjoyable film, mainly for the first 30 minutes of it, after the cat-and-mouse game finishes you will want it to finish itself altogether.

It's a good take on the hostage genre that certainly grabs a few laughs while enjoying the great chemistry between Healy and Schilling.

The plot revolves around a man who gets paid to kidnap his clients in order to make them forget their vices or in other cases, just for the adrenaline rush and escaping the mundane life. This premise sounds good and it's somewhat put into good use until the kidnapper starts questioning himself, that's where the movie starts going nowhere.

I believe it deserves a watch considering it's low runtime and the potential of a couple of laughs as long as you don't go in with high expectations to have your mind blown away.
