QUICK TAKE:
Action/Thriller: A young man gets caught up in a web of intrigue when he learns his father is a CIA agent who may have been responsible for their family being kidnapped.
PLOT:
Will (HENRY CAVILL) has traveled from the United States to Spain for a long-overdue vacation with his father, Martin (BRUCE WILLIS); mother, Laurie (CAROLINE GOODALL); brother, Josh (RAFI GAVRON); and Josh's girlfriend, Dara (EMMA HAMILTON). He quarrels often with his demanding dad, who scowls anytime Will uses his cellphone or texts. Will has good reason to stay connected, though, as his consulting firm teeters on the brink of bankruptcy.

Will's life is turned truly upside down when his mom, brother, and Dara are kidnapped and he discovers his father is a CIA agent. The kidnappers seek a mysterious briefcase in return for their lives. When Martin is killed, Will is left to his own devices as he is pursued by a shadowy government operative named Carrack (SIGOURNEY WEAVER) and her top assassin Gorman (JOSEPH MAWLE) who seek to kill him at every turn.

He eventually learns that he has a twenty-something sister he never knew he had named Lucia (VERONICA ECHEGUI), whose uncle has also been mysteriously murdered by Carrack. The two team up to try and discover the secret and the whereabouts of the briefcase and placate a band of ruthless Mossad agents who want the case for their own purposes.

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!!!
