'The Takeover' (2022) – Netflix Movie – Review: An Action-Thriller for a Rainy Afternoon – Martin Cid Magazine – Martin Cid Magazine

Takeover is a Netflix action thriller movie directed by Annemarie van de Mond, starring Holly Brood.
A cat and mouse chase film.
Mel Bandison is a white-hat hacker who, after a good deed, gets into trouble because, collaterally, she causes the closure of an entire criminal organization.
This little number is an action thriller where there is a lot of running around town, in this case it is Rotterdam, as the protagonist is being chased by the gangsters whose system she has hacked into. Again, although the premise is different, we have a Run Lola Run scenario, as we did with Run Sweetheart Run. The storyline is straightforward, and the production is acceptable.
With the appropriate fast tempo for an action thriller it is one scene after another of the cat and mouse chase.
It might not be novel, but it has a strong protagonist that is well performed by Holly Mae Brood. All in all the performances of the cast is good. As for the cinematography it is not outstanding, with a plain photography, which does have an advantage, though, of giving it a more realistic quality.
If you seek a thriller structured in a more classic narrative format, ‘The Takeover’ might be a movie you will want to watch.
Despite it not being a highly sophisticated production it has the inherent entertainment value of an action thriller, which will probably be to the liking of some audience members. The storyline is not novel, but it counts on a strong protagonist.

Our Opinion
It might not be novel as it follows a classic action thriller narrative structure, but it has a strong protagonist that is well performed by Holly Mae Brood. As for the cinematography it is not outstanding, with a plain photography, which does have an advantage, though, of giving it a more realistic quality.
