QUICK TAKE:
Action: A gravely injured surgeon seeks out a hidden world of mysticism for healing, acquires supernatural powers, and becomes embroiled in an interstellar war that threatens Earth.
PLOT:
Dr. Stephen Strange (BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH) is one of the world's top neurosurgeons. He appears to have everything. Money, prestige, a staff position at one of New York City's finest hospitals, and an ongoing flirtation with the pretty Dr. Christine Palmer (RACHEL McADAMS). But the good doctor takes his hand off the wheel for a moment ... literally ... crashing his sports car outside the city and causing terrible nerve damage to his hands and fingers.

After seeking the advice of Jonathan Pangborn (BENJAMIN BRATT) a man who miraculously beat paralysis, Strange travels to Nepal to seek out a secret society of healers. What he finds is a cult-like order under the direction of The Ancient One (TILDA SWINTON). He is accepted into her inner circle, which includes the warrior Mordo (CHIWETEL EJIOFOR) and keeper of the records, Wong (BENEDICT WONG). Among them, he learns to control energy, create portals to other dimensions, and wield supernatural powers.

He also is placed into harm's way. A former disciple of The Ancient One's, Kaecilius (MADS MIKKELSEN), has returned to steal pages from a centuries-old text that he hopes to decipher. His goal is to present Earth to a malevolent, all-powerful, intergalactic tyrant named Dormammu (voice of CUMBERBATCH), who yearns to bring our world into his dark dimension and consume it.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Yes, indeed. It's the latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For sci-fi violence and action throughout, and an intense crash sequence.

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!!!
