Action: New York cop John McClane travels to Russia to help his CIA agent son foil a terrorist plot.
New York cop John McClane (BRUCE WILLIS) learns that his wayward son, Jack (JAI COURTNEY), has been arrested for murder in Moscow. Feeling guilty for being an absentee father, he hops on a plane for Russia to help Jack out. He gets to the courthouse just at the time terrorists detonate car bombs and swarm the building with automatic weapons looking to kidnap Komarov (SEBASTIAN KOCH), a political prisoner also on trial.

John soon learns that Jack is a CIA agent assigned to protect Komarov and get him out of the city. McClane, though, unwittingly gets in the way of his exit strategy. Forced on the run, the McClanes run afoul of Yuri (SERGEI KOLESNIKOV), a master criminal who is eager to retrieve a computer file that could incriminate him in the Chernobyl disaster; Alik (RADIVOJE BUKVIC), Yuri's top henchman; and Irina, (YULIYA SNIGIR), Komarov's duplicitous daughter.

Father and son escape death several times and vow to foil a nuclear-weapons heist that could alter the balance of power in the world. To do so, they will have to put aside their differences and work together.

Older teens who have cut their teeth on the "Die Hard" series on cable and DVD will have some interest.

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!!!
