QUICK TAKE:
Drama/Action: A U.S. tank crew makes their way behind enemy lines near the end of the European half of WWII.
PLOT:
It's April 1945 and the Allies have pushed German forces back into Germany, and Sgt. Don "Wardaddy" Collier (BRAD PITT) has lead his Sherman tank crew -- consisting of driver Trini "Gordo" Garcia (MICHAEL PENA), gunner Boyd Swan (SHIA LaBEOUF) and his shell loader, Grady Travis (JON BERNTHAL) -- there all of the way from the earlier battles starting in Africa. But they've lost their assistant driver and machine gunner in their latest battle and aren't particularly happy to see his replacement.

And that's because Norman Ellison (LOGAN LERMAN) has only been in the war for a few weeks and has been trained as a clerk-typist and not a soldier. Nonetheless, Don and his crew head out on their next mission under the orders of Captain Waggoner (JASON ISAACS), and Norman's inexperience is put to the test during an ambush, all of which results in Don forcing him to make his first war kill.

Along the way, they have a brief interlude in a German town where Don takes Norman up to meet a local woman, Irma (ANAMARIA MARINCA), and her daughter, Emma (ALICIA VON RITTBERG), who's about Don's age. When the rest of the team eventually shows up and isn't pleased that Don seems to be favoring Norman, it's uncertain what will happen.

Yet, duty calls and they're off again, this time to defend a vital intersection from approaching German forces. But when their tank breaks down, they must contend with the challenges that and the opposing forces will provide.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They will if they're into war movies (especially WWII ones) or are big fans of anyone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong sequences of war violence, some grisly images, and language throughout.

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!!!
