Action: A dying CIA agent is assigned to track down and kill an international arms dealer and terrorist, all while reconnecting with his estranged daughter and ex-wife.
Ethan Renner (KEVIN COSTNER) is a veteran CIA agent who finds out he is dying from cancer. He is discharged from the Agency and opts to go to Paris in an effort to reconnect with his ex-wife, Christine (CONNIE NIELSEN) and teenage daughter, Zoey (HAILEE STEINFELD), neither of whom he has seen in five years.

He swears to Christine that he's done with the spy/assassin life and tells her of his terminal illness. But Ethan is pulled back into the life by an enigmatic agent named Vivi (AMBER HEARD). In exchange for killing two vicious arms dealers named The Wolf (RICHARD SAMMEL) and The Albino (TOMAS LEMARQUIS), she will supply him with an experimental government drug that will prolong his life.

Ethan agrees, and tries to balance hunting down The Wolf and The Albino with learning to be a father to a moody teenager. This includes meeting her boyfriend, Hugh (JONAS BLOQUET); being called to her school by the principal for misbehaving; rescuing her from a rave party gone wrong; and playing music loud enough in the car to cover the sounds of criminal Mitat (MARC ANDREONI) who he's kidnapped and intends to torture to get information on the Wolf's whereabouts.

Older teens may have some interest, especially with Amber Heard and Hailee Steinfeld present.
For intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality, 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.

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!!!
