Western/Action: A disparate group of men join forces to take on a ruthless mining baron and his armed men who've taken over a small town.
It's 1879 and Rose Creek is a small town in the west that's been taken over by mining baron Bartholomew Bogue (PETER SARSGAARD) and his armed men. When they end up killing various residents, one of the new widows, Emma Cullen (HALEY BENNETT), wants righteousness but will take revenge. When she sees that warrant officer Chisolm (DENZEL WASHINGTON) is more than capable of getting his man and dealing with others, she offers to pay him everything she has for him to deal with the culprit. Chisholm's initially reluctant, but when he hears it's Bogue, he agrees and sets out to put together a small group of men for the job.

Among them is Josh Faraday (CHRIS PRATT), a poker player and dead shot; legendary former Civil War soldier Goodnight Robicheaux (ETHAN HAWKE) and his right-hand man, Billy Rocks (BYUNG-HUN LEE); former Indian fighter Jack Horne (VINCENT D'ONOFRIO); Mexican Vasquez (MANUEL GARCIA-RULFO) and Native American Red Harvest (MARTIN SENSMEIER).

They easily dispatch Bogue's small array of men in the town and allow the sheriff -- who's under Bogue's pay -- to deliver a message that they'll be there waiting for him and his men. As Bogue gathers a small army, the men do what they can to prepare themselves and the townsfolk for the battle that's to come.

They might if they're fans of anyone in the cast or Westerns.
For extended and intense sequences of Western violence, and for historical smoking, some language and suggestive material.

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!!!
