QUICK TAKE:
Action: A former DEA agent and his 10-year-old daughter run afoul of a drug lord when they move to a small Southern town.
PLOT:
Phil Broker (JASON STATHAM) is a DEA agent whose final bust brings down a ruthless, drug-dealing motorcycle gang led by Danny T (CHUCK ZITO), who watches his own son gunned down and swears vengeance on Broker. Phil, a widower, decides to retire and move with his 10-year-old daughter, Maddie (IZABELA VIDOVIC), to a quiet, small town in the South and keep his former law-enforcement past a secret.

The town turns out to be anything but quiet. After Maddie beats up a bully at school, she and Broker draw the wrath of the kid's drug-addicted mother, Cassie (KATE BOSWORTH), and her brother, Gator (JAMES FRANCO), a ruthless local drug lord. The local sheriff (CLANCY BROWN) is no help. But fortunately, Broker befriends a local man named Tito (OMAR BENSON MILLER), who gives him the scoop on who's who and what's what in town, and the school psychologist, Susan (RACHELLE LEFEVRE), who he flirts with.

Gator soon learns Broker's true identity and finds out about Danny T's vendetta against him. He senses an opportunity to take his small-time operation to larger markets. So, he gets in touch with his old accomplice, Sheryl (WINONA RYDER), and offers Danny T and his minions on the outside Broker and his daughter in return for distribution and drug profits.

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!!!
