Drama: A team of firefighters strive to attain elite status, all while contending with the dangers of various wildfires they must battle.
Eric Marsh (JOSH BROLIN) is the superintendent of Fire Station 7 in Prescott, Arizona. He's a seasoned firefighter and seems to have an innate knowledge of how wildfires will behave, but he and his crew must often take the back seat to elite hotshot crews from other jurisdictions. Accordingly, he wants his team to achieve that same status and pushes fire chief Duane Steinbrink (JEFF BRIDGES) to make that happen. While those on his team look forward to the prospects of that, including Eric's number two man, Jesse Steed (JAMES BADGE DALE), Eric's wife, Amanda (JENNIFER CONNELLY), is less than thrilled. She already worries about his safety and time spent away from home, and a promotion to hotshot status would only exacerbate that.

One young man who wants in on the action is former deadbeat drug user Brendan McDonough (MILES TELLER) who's decided he must turn his life around now that he's fathered a baby with Natalie (NATALIE HALL), even if that young woman initially doesn't want him around. Nor does Station 7 member Christopher MacKenzie (TAYLOR KITSCH) who knows of Brendan's burnout past. As Brendan tries to prove his worth to him and the rest of the crew, Eric does what he can to get his seasoned veterans and green rookies ready to pass their hotshot evaluation, all while battling various wildfires, some of which grow into quick moving and very dangerous disasters.

Teens might be drawn to it, especially if they're fans of anyone in the cast or are interested in movies about firefighters.

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!!!
