Crime Thriller: Two rival crime gangs meet in a Boston warehouse circa 1978 and end up getting involved in an all-night gun battle.
In late 1970s Massachusetts, a couple of Irish gangsters named Frank (MICHAEL SMILEY) and Chris (CILLIAN MURPHY) seek to purchase a truckload of firearms from South African arms dealers Vernon (SHARLTO COPLEY) and Martin (BABOU CEESAY). They are joined by Justine (BRIE LARSON), an intermediary for the Irishmen, and Ord (ARMIE HAMMER), a suave, smarmy American frontman for the arms dealers. No one trusts anyone.

Nevertheless, a deal is agreed upon and money is about to change hands. But then a preexisting feud between two foot soldiers on each side of the deal, hotheaded junkie Stevo (SAM RILEY) and trigger-happy driver Harry (JACK REYNOR), turns very violent, very fast, and a gun battle erupts. Everyone takes cover, as some of the players are shot. No one fatally at first.

But the longer the night goes on, the more people join the firefight like the tough-talking Gordon (NOAH TAYLOR) and the hired muscle, Bernie (ENZO CILENTI). The struggle to get to a phone in a distant, upstairs office to call out becomes a matter of life and death.

If the film gets a reputation for its hard-R language and gun violence, older teens may show some interest.
For strong violence, pervasive language, sexual references, and drug use.

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!!!
