QUICK TAKE:
Action: A former Army major helps out his successor when she is wrongly framed for espionage.
PLOT:
Jack Reacher (TOM CRUISE) is a former Army major who still does work from time to time for the military, but is mostly a drifter and mercenary answering only to himself. He has had a phone and e-mail flirtation with his successor, Major Susan Turner (COBIE SMULDERS), for some time and finally decides to travel to Washington, D.C., to take her on a dinner date.

Once there, he learns that she has been court-martialed and is suspected of international espionage. He is immediately suspicious of a colonel (HOLT McCALLANY), who is her interim replacement, and Espin (ALDIS HODGE), an officer who was on Turner's team up until her arrest. All the while, a shadowy figure known as General Harkness (ROBERT KNEPPER) seems to be calling the shots from behind a corporate desk.

At the same time, Reacher learns that he may have a 15-year-old daughter, Samantha (DANIKA YAROSH), who he knew nothing about. When an assassin known as The Hunter (PATRICK HEUSINGER) tries to kill her at her foster home but fails, Reacher realizes there may be a larger conspiracy at play. He busts Turner out of military prison and goes on the run with her and Samantha to try and draw out the real culprits.

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!!!
