QUICK TAKE:
Action: A former government covert op sets out to find who killed his friend and then acts as a one-man judge, jury, and executioner while doing out his comeuppance and justice.
PLOT:
Robert McCall (DENZEL WASHINGTON) is a former government covert op who long ago let everyone believe he perished during an assignment and has since lived a low-key life, save for when he uses his special set of skills to help those in need and deal with various bad guys. Working as a Lyft driver, he's become friends with Holocaust survivor Sam Rubinstein (ORSON BEAN) while also becoming a mentor of sorts to Miles (ASHTON SANDERS), a young art student who could easily succumb to the pull of becoming a gang member.

But Robert has bigger issues to contend with when his friend and former work associate, Susan Plummer (MELISSA LEO), is murdered while investigating a double homicide in Brussels, leaving her author husband, Brian (BILL PULLMAN), a widower. Seeing out the help of his former work partner Dave York (PEDRO PASCAL) -- who thought he died all those years ago -- Robert sets out to figure out who's responsible for the murder and then deliver his own form of comeuppance and justice while serving as his own one-man judge, jury, and executioner.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the first film or hard-hitting action films in general they might be interested.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For brutal violence throughout, language, and some drug content.

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!!!
