QUICK TAKE:
Suspense/Thriller: Three young burglars get more than they bargained for when they break into a blind man's home in a deserted Detroit neighborhood hoping to steal a large sum of cash from him.
PLOT:
Rocky (JANE LEVY), Alex (DYLAN MINNETTE) and Money (DANIEL ZOVATTO) are three friends who are desperate to get out of the poverty and dead-end nature of their bleak Detroit lives. Rocky, in particular, wants to move to California with her younger sister in order to get away from their abusive mother, with Money definitely going too and Alex being on the fence about joining them. In hopes of making some escape money, the three have been burglarizing homes protected by security systems installed by Alex's dad, meaning he knows how to deactivate the alarms and allow them easy entry and getaways.

Their latest and potentially most lucrative robbery is targeting a blind man who lives alone in an otherwise deserted and completely run-down neighborhood. Word is that he's sitting on several hundred thousand dollars in cash stemming from a wrongful death settlement involving his daughter sometime in the past. Knowing they can deactivate the alarm and figuring a blind man wouldn't prove to be much of an obstacle should they have a run-in with him, the three break into the house.

Little do they know, however, that the Blind Man (STEPHEN LANG), a war veteran, is more resourceful than they ever imagined and one-hundred percent determined not to let them rob him. When he ends up locking all of them inside his place, they must contend with trying to avoid the armed and violent man who has no intention of letting any of them out alive.

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.
