“The Take” is the most popular movie on Netflix, according to the streaming service’s public ranking system.

The 2016 movie stars Idris Elba and Richard Madden as a CIA agent and a pickpocket who team up to thwart a terrorist plot in Paris. It earned a 48% on Rotten Tomatoes.

“The Smurfs 2” got second place. That 2013 family movie earned a 14% on Rotten Tomatoes. The 2011 film “The Smurfs” is at ninth in the ranking. That movie earned a 21% on Rotten Tomatoes.

A Netflix Original film doesn’t show up until third place, with “The Devil All the Time.” That American gothic thriller just debuted on Sept. 16 and stars Tom Holland, Riley Keough, Robert Pattinson and Bill Skarsgård. It earned a bit better reviews than “The Smurfs” movies with a 64% on Rotten Tomatoes.
