  • J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film The Take

    This is about the rise & fall of an irish mobster, Freddie Jackson, in a 4 episode TV series. Tom Hardy as Freddie is exceptional, explosive, insane, brutal. A murder, rapist & criminal of the worst kind. You know who came into my mind immediately? Joe Pesci as Nicky Santoro in 'Casino'. Same evil, same destruction, same insanity. Both falling into an ever-deepening spiral of betrayal, violence & death. I like that.
