Format: VHS Tape Verified Purchase
Probably the only thing Lorenzo Lamas has done that I was able to take seriously, Takedown is a solid portrayal of a lower working-class teen trying to balance attending high-school with the need to work in order to help support his family. Maureen McCormick plays a classmate who Lamas hopes to...er...'take down'(hee hee). No, actually it's a bittersweet movie about growing up among the have-nots, but finding that what you need was within yourself all along (or some Hallmark card-inspired nonsense like that). Might as well purchase it on VHS, since the likelihood of it ever getting updates to dvd is essentially nil.

This is a great movie that our whole family enjoyed in the 70s. They are in their 40s now and I won't say how old I am but I sure would love to see this movie out in DVD. The price on the VHS tape is unbelievable and out of the question to purchase. It hasn't shown up on premimum tv either as far as I know. Hope it comes back in to print in DVD format.

Format: VHS Tape
This movie is a great movie with Lorenzo Lamas as a High School student, Marcia McCormick as his girl friend, and Edward Herrmann as the coach. Not only does the student grow personally while on the wrestling team, the coach grows as a person while being assigned it to him as an added "faculty" responsibility. It is a clean film able to be shown to the entire family and I would love to see it on DVD. The current price for an outdated VHS tape of over $300 is unreasonable, but if it came out more realistically priced I would definitely purchase it.

When I saw this years ago, I knew I would wrestle. I would link this to starting my wrestling career.
