Taken with The Take
It's easily the best mini-series that I have ever seen.

Perhaps not the right venue, but could you please tell me the name of the song to which, the bride & groom were dancing to? Sound like, "I'm crazy; crazy about our love…" That is just one example about the background music that I loved. The dialogue was crisp and did not lag. The plot was fantastic. Always kept me on the edge of my seat.

Tom Hardy was desirable and irresistible. He played a good, bad guy. I look forward to seeing him in more movies. He takes full control of the camera, when he plays the functional sociopath. It's a mini-series that you want to see over and over again. It can be paralleled to a book. It's not what the author says; it's how he says it. Well, it's not what Tom Hardy plays, It's how he plays it.
