QUICK TAKE:
Action: In a dystopian Detroit circa 2018, a vengeful cop teams up with an ex-convict to take down a ruthless arms dealer who has stolen a neutron bomb.
PLOT:
In 2018, Detroit has become a frightening dystopia where the most dangerous neighborhood has been cordoned off by a containment wall and the people behind that wall have been left to fend for themselves. Many live in the Brick Mansions, old, once ornate structures that used to house the city's most successful people. Today, they are ruled by Tremaine (RZA), a drug and weapons dealer who commands a small army of thugs and even has the officers at the wall's checkpoint on his payroll.

When a local neighborhood hero named Lino (DAVID BELLE) steals his latest shipment of cocaine, Tremaine assembles his forces commanded by the cold-blooded K2 (GOUCHY BOY) and the violence-obsessed Rayzah (AYISHA ISSA) to hunt the former convict down and kill him. They end up taking his former girlfriend, Lola (CATALINA DENIS), hostage to draw him out.

Meanwhile, undercover vice cop Damien (PAUL WALKER) accepts a dangerous assignment from Detroit's Mayor (BRUCE RAMSAY) -- infiltrate the Brick Mansions neighborhood, team up with Lino, and diffuse a neutron bomb Tremaine has stolen from the government and has aimed at downtown Detroit. Damien has a double motive for accepting the mission in that his father, a decorated cop, was previously killed by Tremaine.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Due to the PG-13 rating and the fact that this is "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker's last fully completed film, some older teens -- especially males who like action flicks -- may have interest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For frenetic gunplay, violence and action throughout, language, sexual menace, and drug 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!!!
