QUICK TAKE:
Action: An elite team of Navy SEALs embarks on a covert mission to rescue a kidnapped CIA agent and thwart a major terrorist attack against the United States.
PLOT:
An elite team of eight Navy SEALs (played by real active-duty SEALs who are referred to in the film only by their first or last names) are deployed to the Philippines when one CIA agent (NESTOR SERRANO) is murdered and a second named Lisa (ROSELYN SANCHEZ) is kidnapped. The two were working to uncover a terrorist connection involving a notorious international smuggler named Christo (ALEX VEADOV) and a Muslim extremist named Shabal (JASON COTTLE).

In the process of their rescue mission, they discover that Shabal is plotting to attack the United States on its own soil with a potentially horrific new weapon. Shabal's plan is to sneak 16 suicide bombers across the Mexican-U.S. border and detonate special vests filled with gel explosives in crowded public venues across the country. The plan will strike fear into the heart of every American and plunge the nation's economy even further into despair.

It's up to the SEALs to track Shabal and Christo's movement and eliminate them and the threat to the U.S. The mission takes the SEAL team to the South Pacific; then to a small island off the coast of Mexico; and, finally, to the Mexican border.

    I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

    I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

    I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

    Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
