About the movie The Takedown

The Takedown

Two Police Officers Ousmane Diakite and Francois Monge are very different from one another both in their Personal and Professional lives.

They are forced to work together again on a murder case in the French city but both haven’t any idea what’s going on. They will be caught up in a far more dangerous Criminal Conspiracy.

They were appointed to investigate an easy drug case but it turns out to be something bigger than that, the film is made in a light comedy way, so that the viewers can enjoy the drug mystery with a little fun.

Issue date

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

What to expect

The movie is completely filled with action and we can see 2 completely different copies with different principles working together in a drug case, as seen in the trailer you can see an intense car chase scene and one of the cars overturns on the edge of the mountain. Apart from the action, it also has some humor which makes it more interesting to watch.

If you’re a fan of action-comedy movies then this movie should absolutely be on your watch list.
