Action/Drama: A small town sheriff and his ragtag group of deputies try to prevent an escaped drug cartel leader from crossing the border into Mexico.
In the small town of Sommerton Junction, Arizona, Ray Owens (ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER) is the local sheriff. A former narcotics detective in L.A., he now prefers the smaller and quieter scene. While his three deputies -- Figgy (LUIS GUZMAN), Jerry (ZACH GILFORD) and Sarah (JAIMIE ALEXANDER) -- aren't any sort of powerhouse in terms of law enforcement, the worst thing they encounter is having to keep Sarah's ex-boyfriend, Frank (RODRIGO SANTORO), jailed for the weekend, while Figgy and Jerry enjoy doing some target shooting with the seemingly somewhat unhinged Lewis (JOHNNY KNOXVILLE) who runs the local gun museum.

All of that changes when drug cartel boss Gabriel Cortez (EDUARDO NORIEGA) manages to escape from the custody of FBI agent John Banister (FOREST WHITAKER), takes another agent, Ellen Richards (GENESIS RODRIGUEZ), hostage, and speeds toward the Mexican border in his suped-up Corvette ZR1. The FBI realizes there's only one place he can cross the border in that car and amass their forces there. But Cortez's henchmen, led by Burrell Thomas (PETER STORMARE), have other plans that end up involving Sommerton Junction.

After a violent run-in with Burrell and his team, Ray realizes they're going to be the last stand that could prevent Cortez from fleeing to Mexico and thus escaping justice. With his meager team of deputies and a few new recruits, he sets out to prevent that from happening.

Older male teens seem the most likely target audience among kids, and those who are fans of action films and/or anyone in the cast might be interested in it.
For strong bloody violence throughout, 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.
