QUICK TAKE:
Crime Thriller: An Atlanta cocaine dealer tires of his criminal lifestyle and seeks one final big score, as rivals and corrupt cops conspire against him.
PLOT:
Priest (TREVOR JACKSON) is an Atlanta-based cocaine dealer who has been so successful at his life of crime that he's never been arrested. The local cops have never even heard of him. Rescued from the streets and mentored by Scatter (MICHAEL KENNETH WILLIAMS), Priest lives in a nice house, has a souped-up sports car, and two beautiful girlfriends in Georgia (LEX SCOTT DAVIS) and Cynthia (ANDREA LONDO).

But a run-in with a local gang known as the Snow Patrol, cocaine dealers who dress in all-white ski outfits and are led by Q (BIG BANK BLACK), gets Priest to thinking about his life and how he'd like his future to play out. He wants to set up one final big score that will net him tens of millions of dollars and then leave America. To do this, he will betray Scatter and set up his own deal with a Mexican drug cartel run by Gonzalez (ESAI MORALES) in which he promises to move triple the product Scatter had been responsible for.

But as dollars start to pile up, Priest finds it harder and harder to leave the lifestyle, especially with Q's unstable majordomo, Juju (KAALAN WALKER), gunning for him; his best friend, Eddie (JASON MITCHELL), constantly fouling things up; one of his lieutenants, Fat Freddy (JACOB MING-TRENT), wanting to be more than just "the muscle;" and two corrupt cops, Mason (JENNIFER MORRISON) and Turk (BRIAN F. DURKIN), wanting in on the action.

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!!!
