QUICK TAKE:
Action: A superhero from the past uncovers a nefarious and wide-reaching plot within his own espionage agency to eradicate current and future terrorists and criminals before they act.
PLOT:
A one-time WWII hero who reemerged in the present after a 70-year stint in suspended animation, genetically enhanced superhero Steve Rogers (CHRIS EVANS), a.k.a. Captain America, is still trying to get used to this new world and time where he finds himself. After repeatedly lapping war veteran and current PTSD counselor Sam Wilson (ANTHONY MACKIE) on the National Mall, former KGB agent turned S.H.I.E.L.D. operative Natasha "Black Widow" Romanoff (SCARLETT JOHANSSON) picks up Steve, and both later end up onboard a S.H.I.E.L.D. vessel that's been commandeered by pirates.

Yet, while Captain America is there to save the ship and its passengers, Natasha is there to extract data from the ship's computers, an act that rouses his suspicions. S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury (SAMUEL L. JACKSON) later informs Steve of a counter-terrorism program known as Operation: Insight that will use three massive helicarrier gunships to preemptively eliminate threats worldwide, including in America.

It's an idea supported by Fury's old friend and current senior S.H.I.E.L.D. official, Alexander Pierce (ROBERT REDFORD), but Fury is concerned when he can't access files that he reportedly locked himself. When he asks Pierce to hold back on deploying the operation, Nick twice ends up as the target of the masked and highly efficient assassin, the Winter Soldier (SEBASTIAN STAN), but not before handing Steve a flash drive and telling him to trust no one. Heeding that advice, Steve doesn't fully cooperate with Pierce, thus making him a fugitive within his own agency.

That causes the likes of steely S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Brock Rumlow (FRANK GRILLO) and others to try to capture or kill him, all while agents Maria Hill (COBIE SMULDERS) and Sharon Carter (EMILY VANCAMP) do their best to help the man from another time. With the helicarrier gunships set to lift off and enact their preemptive strike on scores of Americans, Captain America, along with the help of Natasha and Sam, sets out to prevent that from happening.

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.
