QUICK TAKE:
Dramatic Thriller: A detective and his associates try to find and stop a deranged assassin before he kills a corporate executive, unaware that doing so will also put them in the killer's crosshairs.
PLOT:
Alex Cross (TYLER PERRY) is a detective with the Detroit Police Department who works alongside his childhood friend Tommy Kane (EDWARD BURNS) and Monica Ashe (RACHEL NICHOLS) trying to solve the city's grisliest crimes. Married to Maria (CARMEN EJOGO) with two kids and another one on the way, he's a happy family man but must get to work when a sadistic assassin known as Picasso (MATTHEW FOX) strikes.

Technically proficient and innovative at his killings that also show him to be a deranged and sadistic psychopath, Picasso has just killed a wealthy woman and her bodyguards. And discovered evidence points to the fact that he's headed up a corporate chain, with his final target likely being wealthy businessman Giles Mercier (JEAN RENO).

Racing against time, Alex and his team try to figure out who Picasso is and how to stop him, all of which puts them at risk once the killer realizes they're on his trail.

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.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
