QUICK TAKE:
Action: After being set up by her handlers, a covert operative seeks out revenge on those who've wronged her.
PLOT:
In an upstate New York diner, Mallory Kane (GINA CARANO) isn't happy to see the arrival of Aaron (CHANNING TATUM), her former business partner and lover. And that's because he's there to take her back to their handler, Kenneth (EWAN McGREGOR), something she isn't keen to. Accordingly, when he suddenly attacks her, she uses her physical skills -- and a little assistance from shocked bystander Scott (MICHAEL ANGARANO) -- to defeat Aaron and flee the scene.

Traveling in Scott's car, she then relates her tale to him. A former Marine turned highly trained operative for hire, she worked for private contractor Kenneth who had a business arrangement with a U.S. government official, Coblenz (MICHAEL DOUGLAS) in conjunction with a nebulous figure, Rodrigo (ANTONIO BANDERAS). After rescuing a hostage with Aaron and others, she was assigned to work with Paul (MICHAEL FASSBENDER), but quickly learned that her decision to leave Kenneth had it repercussions.

Now back in the States, she wants revenge on those who wronged her. With the help of Scott as well as her ex-Marine turned novelist father John (BILL PAXTON), she sets out to do just that.

    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.
