Action: A top MI6 agent must contend with various attempts on her life while trying to find and protect a stolen list of spies, uncover a possible double agent, and decide who she can and can't trust in her tangled world of espionage.
It's 1989 and MI6 agent Lorraine Broughton (CHARLIZE THERON) is being questioned by her immediate superior, Eric Gray (TOBY JONES), as well as his CIA counterpart, Emmett Kurzfeld (JOHN GOODMAN), about a failed mission in West Berlin with the backdrop of the Berlin Wall about to fall. She was sent there not only to investigate the death of a spy colleague, but also rumors of a double agent and the troubling report that a list of spies had been stolen and could thus compromise all of MI6's operations and agents.

The story then rewinds to a few days before the interrogation when Lorraine -- an accomplished agent whose beauty hides her lethal abilities -- ends up teamed with MI6 station chief David Percival (JAMES McAVOY) who has in his company an East German man, Spyglass (EDDIE MARSAN), who's reportedly committed the entire stolen spy list to memory.

Lorraine doesn't trust David, which also holds true -- at least initially -- in regard to rookie French agent Delphine Lasalle (SOFIA BOUTELLA), although that initial mistrust quickly segues into a love affair. From that point on, Lorraine tries to get Spyglass to safety in order to protect the agent list, all while contending with a variety of attempts on her life.

Teenagers into hard-hitting, highly stylized action films probably will.
For sequences of strong violence, language throughout, and some sexuality/nudity.

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!!!
