QUICK TAKE:
Action: A thrill-seeking government operative comes out of self-imposed exile to try and recover a weapon of mass destruction known as Pandora's Box.
PLOT:
Xander Cage (VIN DIESEL) was known as an extreme sports competitor before he was recruited by Augustus Gibbons (SAMUEL L. JACKSON) to become a government operative as part of Gibbons' xXx program. But that was years ago. Xander grew tired of authority, faked his own death, and has been living off the grid in the Dominican Republic ever since. But when Gibbons is killed by an intentionally crashed satellite caused by a terrorist operating a super-weapon known as Pandora's Box, Xander is drawn back into NSA service by Gibbons' successor, Jane Marke (TONI COLLETTE).

He's up against a team of former xXx agents gone rogue, headed by the ruthless Xiang (DONNIE YEN). His team consists of Serena (DEEPIKA PADUKONE), a weapons expert; Talon (TONY JAA), an acrobatic, martial arts daredevil; and Hawk (MICHAEL BISPING), a former Mixed Martial Arts fighter always looking to brawl.

Xander knows he has to assemble a team of equally specialized, risk-taking rogues. So, he calls on Adele Wolff (RUBY ROSE), an expert sniper always looking to challenge herself; stuntman Tennyson Torch (RORY McCANN), who specializes in crashing cars; and Nicks (KRIS WU), a club DJ with insane fighting skills. They are aided by government IT specialist Becky Clearidge (NINA DOBREV), who regards Xander as a living legend. He'll have to be when the mission takes him from London to the Philippines to Detroit.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Due to the PG-13 rating and the marketing that's doing a good job making it look like a "Fast and Furious"-style actioner, interest among teens could be high.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For extended sequences of gunplay and violent action, sexual material, and language.

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!!!
