QUICK TAKE:
Superhero Action: A villain masterminds an epic battle between two superheroes who were already growing increasingly suspicious of and hostile toward each other.
PLOT:
Ever since Superman (HENRY CAVILL) arrived in Metropolis in an epic battle with attacking aliens led by General Zod (MICHAEL SHANNON), Bruce Wayne (BEN AFFLECK) of nearby Gotham has viewed him suspiciously. After all, the man of steel -- whose secret alter ego is Daily Planet reporter Clark Kent -- is seemingly unstoppable, and if he decided to turn against humankind, that could be the end. Bruce, an ultra-rich playboy businessman who lost his parents as a boy to an armed robber -- knows a thing or two about bad guys. And that's because with the help of his "butler" Alfred (JEREMY IRONS) he moonlights as Batman, a caped crusader/vigilante with a unique style of doling out justice.

That doesn't sit well with Clark, but his editor, Perry White (LAURENCE FISHBURNE), isn't interested in stories about Batman. Nor is Clark's girlfriend, fellow Daily Planet reporter Lois (AMY ADAMS), who ends up needing his help as Superman to get out of a violent situation. But Superman's actions are twisted in public perception by diabolical young businessman Lex Luthor (JESSE EISENBERG) who wants to convince U.S. Senator Finch (HOLLY HUNTER) that Superman is a danger, and that kryptonite fragments of the superhero's long-lost planet are the only thing that can protect them. Bruce ends up attempting to steal information related to that kryptonite but is caught in the act by Diana Prince (GAL GADOT), who hides her own superhero alter-ego, Wonder Woman, from all involved.

When Lex has his goons kidnap Clark's mother, Martha (DIANE LANE), he sets into motion an epic battle between Superman and Batman, all while unleashing a powerful monster, Doomsday, with the safety of those in Gotham and Metropolis at stake.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet many will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For intense sequences of violence and action throughout, and some sensuality.

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.
