QUICK TAKE:
Action: An FBI agent in training infiltrates a group of environmentally conscious, thrill-seeking criminals in hopes of stopping them before they strike again.
PLOT:
Following the death of his best friend, extreme athlete Johnny Utah (LUKE BRACEY) has decided to join the FBI and is close to becoming a full-fledged agent, all under the watchful eye of his instructor (DELROY LINDO). When a group of environmentally conscious, thrill-seeking criminals strikes again, but ends up giving away the $100 million worth of diamond they stole to the poor in Mumbai, Johnny thinks he knows what they're up to.

It seems they're completing a series of extreme, thrill-seeking endeavors known as the Ozaki 8, and knowing one of those is surfing once-in-a-lifetime waves, he convinces his handler to put him in the field despite not yet being a full-fledged agent.

He ends up teamed with crusty FBI agent Angelo Pappas (RAY WINSTONE) and the two head out to sea where they not only encounter said waves, but also Bodhi (EDGAR RAMIREZ) who saves the young man when he wipes out and appears headed for death. Sensing a kindred spirit in Johnny, Bodhi introduces him to others in his group including Chowder (TOBIAS SANTELMANN), Roach (CLEMENS SCHICK) and the alluring Samsara (TERESA PALMER), among others.

As he begins hanging out with them and increasingly participating in their extreme stunts and getting involved with Samsara, Pappas begins to worry that Johnny might be getting in too deep with the thrill seekers to do his job.

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!!!
