Action/Drama: After saving his estranged adult son's life by killing his crime boss' thuggish adult son, an emotionally damaged hitman tries to protect his boy from those out to kill both of them.
To the criminals and police officers of New York City, Jimmy Conlon (LIAM NEESON) is a known hit-man who's long worked for his childhood friend turned crime boss, Shawn Maguire (ED HARRIS). While the likes of Det. Harding (VINCENT D'ONOFRIO) would like to put Jimmy away, no charges have stuck and he's a free man. Yet, the many lives he's taken, along with being estranged from his family, have taken an emotional toll on the man. His adult son, boxer wannabe and current limo driver Mike (JOEL KINNAMAN), wants nothing to do with him while trying to do the best for his two girls and pregnant wife, Gabriela (GENESIS RODRIGUEZ), all while helping mentor the likes of young Curtis 'Legs' Banks (AUBREY JOSEPH).

When Shawn's adult son, Danny (BOYD HOLBROOK), can't convince his father to accept a lucrative heroin deal, Danny ends up killing the dealer and his partner, a crime witnessed by both Legs and Mike. The latter ends up escaping from Danny and his buddy only to be tracked down again, their intent to silence him by killing him. But Jimmy kills Danny first, knowing full well what that will cause. And that's Shawn pulling out all the stops to get his revenge, including hiring a rival hitman, Andrew Price (COMMON), to take out both Jimmy and Mike.

Older teens into hard-hitting, crime action-dramas might be interested, especially if they're fans of anyone in the cast.
For strong violence, language including sexual references, and some drug use.

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!!!
