QUICK TAKE:
Action: An elite military group becomes splintered when it does battle with a terrorist organization that has infiltrated the highest levels of the U.S. government.
PLOT:
Led by Duke (CHANNING TATUM) and Roadblock (DWAYNE JOHNSON), the elite military unit known as the G.I. Joes is successful in retrieving an atomic bomb in Pakistan. Soon after their mission is completed, though, the U.S. President (JONATHAN PRYCE) orders all of the Joes to be eliminated and spreads a false story about how the unit betrayed the country in attempting to seize nuclear power for itself.

Unfortunately, the President has been replaced by a master of disguise named Zartan (ARNOLD VOSLOO), whose allegiance is to the terrorist organization known as Cobra. Its members include the recent prison escapee Cobra Commander (LUKE BRACEY), the demolitions expert Firefly (RAY STEVENSTON), and the elite ninja Storm Shadow (BYUNG-HUN LEE). They dream of nothing short of total world domination.

Roadblock takes command of what's left of the Joes, including the enigmatic Snake Eyes (RAY PARK), his ninja companion Jinx (ELODIE YUNG), and elite soldiers Lady Jaye (ADRIANNE PALICKI) and Flint (D.J. CONTRONA). Together, they enlist the aid of retired General Joe Colton (BRUCE WILLIS) to stop Cobra from spreading his tyranny on a global scale.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
This sequel is based on a popular line of toys. So, interest will be high, especially among boys in the 7-12 age range, and particularly if they enjoyed the first "G.I. Joe" film from a few years back.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For intense sequences of combat violence and martial arts action throughout, and for brief sensuality and language.

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!!!
