Action: A hitman and a cop team up to track down the killer of their respective partners and uncover corruption in New Orleans.
In New Orleans, Jimmy Bobo (SYLVESTER STALLONE) and Louis Blanchard (JON SEDA) are hitmen who have been partners for a while. Their latest contract is to kill a crooked Washington, D.C., cop named Hank Greely (HOLT McCALLANY) who has followed a trail of bribery and extortion to a local gangster named Morel (ADEWALE AKINNUOYE-AGBAJE) and wants his cut.

Jimmy and Louis are successful in their assignment and await payment at a local bar. Morel, though, has another contract killer waiting for them there. His name is Keegan (JASON MOMOA), an utterly remorseless and extremely efficient assassin who kills Louis and nearly kills Jimmy. Eager to avenge his partner, Jimmy teams up with D.C. cop Taylor Kwon (SUNG KANG), the upstanding former partner of Greely who has come to town to find out the truth behind his friend's murder.

Their investigation leads them to Lisa (SARAH SHAHI), Jimmy's tattoo artist daughter; Ronnie Earl (BRIAN VAN HOLT), a criminal middleman who it seems double-crossed Jimmy and Louis; and Baptiste (CHRISTIAN SLATER), a corrupt local attorney with ties to Morel. The investigation also produces a trail of blood, as Jimmy slaughters his way through the town to get to the truth.

Older male teens may be drawn to the film's action elements.

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!!!
