QUICK TAKE:
Action/Adventure: A mid-19th century Texas Ranger and a Comanche Indian become unlikely partners as they try to track down a villain.
PLOT:
It's 1933 and a boy is wandering through a carnival display about the old West. In that, he finds what he believes to be a wax figure of "the noble savage" but that turns out to be a very aged Comanche Indian, Tonto (JOHNNY DEPP). He then proceeds to tell the boy his tale that takes us back to Colby, Texas in 1869 when railroad executive Lathan Cole (TOM WILKINSON) is continuing the westward expansion of his company's rail line.

On one of those trains is educated lawman John Reid (ARMIE HAMMER) who's returning to his former home town where he once had a thing with Rebecca (RUTH WILSON). She's now married to his Texas Ranger brother, Dan (JAMES BADGE DALE), with whom they have a boy, Danny (BRYANT PRINCE). Dan's waiting for the arrival of the outlaw Butch Cavendish (WILLIAM FICHTNER) -- on that same train and chained next to Tonto (JOHNNY DEPP) -- in order to process and hang him. But Butch's gang shows up, frees him and sets off into the vast wilderness.

Dan deputizes John to assist in his capture, but a resultant shoot-out leaves everyone dead but John who ends up discovered by Tonto. The two become an unlikely and occasionally squabbling team as they try to track down the outlaw, a quest that eventually involves cavalryman Capt. Fuller (BARRY PEPPER) and madam Red Harrington (HELENA BONHAM CARTER) who runs the local brothel.

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sequences of intense action and violence, and some suggestive material.

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!!!
