QUICK TAKE:
Drama: Ten years after a global economic collapse, a stoic loner takes a younger, wounded man hostage while trying to find the latter's brother who stole his car along with two other men.
PLOT:
It's ten years after a global economic collapse and a botched robbery in a remote part of Australia has left several men dead and one, Rey (ROBERT PATTINSON), severely injured. Rey's brother, Henry (SCOOT McNAIRY), has fled with his two associates, Archie (DAVID FIELD) and Caleb (TAWANDA MANYIMO), but a disagreement between Henry and Archie results in their truck crashing and becoming stuck. As a result, they steal a car belonging to a mysterious drifter, Eric (GUY PEARCE), and speed away.

Angry about the theft and determined to get his car back, Eric manages to free the stuck truck and gives chase, only to end up knocked out. He eventually runs into Rey who wonders why he has Henry's truck, but passes out from his injuries before explaining his relationship with that man. Knowing he needs him alive to get that information, Eric gets Rey to a doctor who patches him up, with the two then becoming an unlikely duo as they search for the three men who have Eric's car.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Some older teens might be interested, while Pattinson could potentially draw some of his "Twilight" fans.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For language and some bloody violence.

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!!!
