QUICK TAKE:
Action: Turkish criminals seek revenge against a former CIA operative for the killings he committed when rescuing his daughter from their white slavery ring.
PLOT:
Retired CIA operative Bryan Mills (LIAM NEESON) continues to find work as a private security consultant. Time has passed since Mills went on a rampage in France after his daughter, Kim (MAGGIE GRACE), was kidnapped and almost sold into a white-slavery prostitution ring. He killed many men to get his girl back. And now the relatives and friends of those men want revenge.

Led by Turkish crime boss Murad Krasniqi (RADE SERBEDZIJA), the gangsters set a trap for Bryan in Istanbul where he is on his latest assignment. They are even more inspired to inflict pain on the man when they learn that Kim and Bryan's newly separated ex-wife, Lenore (FAMKE JANSSEN), have also come for a brief holiday.

Just 24 hours earlier, Mills' biggest worry was his daughter's new boyfriend, Jamie (LUKE GRIMES), back in the States. Now, he and Lenore have been kidnapped and Kim takes it upon herself to help free them. A deadly cat-and-mouse game ensues in which Mills must once again use all of his past training to save his family and crush the crime syndicate that wants them all dead.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Due to the PG-13 rating and the popularity of the previous film, the sequel should draw interest from teenage action fans.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For intense sequences of violence and action and some sensuality.

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!!!
