About the movie The Takedown

The Takedown

Two Police Officials Ousmane Diakite and Francois Monge are very different from each other both in their Personal as well as Professional life.

They are forced to work together again on a murder case in the French town but both of them have no idea what’s coming out. They will be stuck in a much more dangerous Criminal Conspiracy.

They have been appointed to investigate a simple drug case but it turns out to be something bigger than that, the movie is made in a light-hearted comedy way, so the viewers can enjoy the drug mystery with some fun.

Release Date 

The Takedown will be globally released on 6th May 2022.

What to expect

The movie is totally action-packed and we can see 2 totally different cops with different principles working together in a drug case, as seen in the trailer can see an intense car chase scene and one of the cars flips over the mountain edge. Apart from action, it has also a slight touch of humor which makes it more interesting to watch.

If you are a fan of action-comedy movies then this movie should definitely be in your watchlist.
