Not realizing the toy contains a timed bomb, he tosses it aside on a busy street. A few seconds later it explodes, killing four people. CCTV footage reveals Masons face and the French police tag him as a terrorist threat. The explosion, although botched, was set up by a select group of the French Interior Ministry as a decoy so they can make a half billion dollar digital transfer from a bank, (closed on French National Day) -hence the title Bastille Day. In a separate CIA investigation the unruly agent Sean Briar, discovers the real story behind Masons “terrorist attack”. The two men, on different sides of the law, collaborate to bring the corrupt members of the Ministry down.
Plot: Michael Mason is an American pickpocket living in Paris who finds himself hunted by the CIA when he steals a bag that contains more than just a wallet. Sean Briar, the field agent on the case, soon realises that Michael is just a pawn in a much bigger game and is also his best asset to uncover a large-scale conspiracy.

Better than Bourne!
I am not speaking frivolously when I say that overall, although produced with a fraction of the budget, this is a much better film than the fourth Bourne.
* great opener — film opens with a dramatic situation that immediately grabs the viewers’ attention. You have “connection” from the getgo.
* great script — many layers and twists. Clever dialog. (At one point the bad guys gloat about how they are manipulating “the hashtags” — thereby dissing an entire generation. Another line of dialog refers to the use of “action and reaction” to achieve their end — which is a very sophisticated dig at how politics are managed today.)
* Director writer Watkins know to keep things interesting, you are never bored.
* Elba is nothing short of awesome. Other reviewers are saying he could be a major international action figure. Agree!
Solid entertainment, does not take the viewer for granted, and the clever story keeps you hooked.
I always use subtitles since I don’t hear well.
The spoken English was subtitled, which was helpful, but the long spoken exchanges between the French police/tactical/intelligence was spoken in French, but NONE of the French dialog WAS TRANSLATED and SUBTITLED.
Maybe not a huge issue except that the ‘good guys’ had maybe ten pages of dialog between them. The French speakers provided about 80% of ‘The Take’s’ total spoken word.
Now, Idris Elba is the caliber of actor who doesn’t need to chatter in order to get his thoughts out.
Still, with the Strong, Silent Type in the lead, there was no way to follow the plot. When we thought we’d identified the villians, we had to watch and wait for another character’s confirmation of events.
I don’t know who’s responsible for subtitles…but really, our phones can transcribe a spoken voice message. We can speak to lock our doors, turn off our lights, and play our favorite music.
