Superhero Action: Various superheroes attempt to stop a megalomaniacal villain from obtaining six rare but powerful stones that he intends to use to wipe out half of the universe's population.
Thanos (motion capture performance by JOSH BROLIN) is a megalomaniacal villain who wants to get his hands on six rare but powerful Infinity Stones -- they being the mind, soul, space, power, time and reality ones -- that will make him the most powerful being of all time and allow him to carry out his misguided quest to save those in the universe from themselves, mainly by using genocide to cull the herd by half. Naturally, there are those who desire to stop him, but we quickly see that Thor (CHRIS HEMSWORTH), his brother Loki (TOM HIDDLESTON) and even the mighty Hulk (motion capture performance by MARK RUFFALO) are no match for the villain's might, even with only a few stones put into his massive glove so far.

When Hulk's alter ego, Bruce Banner (MARK RUFFALO), ends up literally crashing into the estate of Dr. Strange (BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH), the scientist warns him and Wong (BENEDICT WONG) about Thanos and his deadly quest. They then find Tony Stark (ROBERT DOWNEY JR.), a.k.a. Iron Man, and hope he can get the Avengers to help battle the villain. Tony informs them that his former superheroes group went through a civil war of their own and are not on speaking terms, but is nonetheless urged to make the call.

Before he can, two of Thanos' goons -- including the telepathic Ebony Maw (motion capture performance by TOM VAUGHAN-LAWLOR) -- arrive and try to get their hands on the Infinity Stone that Dr. Strange wears around his neck. Ebony Maw manages to kidnap Strange and both Iron Man and Spider-Man (TOM HOLLAND) -- who's swung in to help his mentor -- catch a ride aboard the enemy spaceship in hopes of saving him.

The Guardians of the Galaxy -- Star-Lord (CHRIS PRATT), Rocket (voiced by BRADLEY COOPER), Drax (motion capture performance by DAVE BAUTISTA), Gamora (ZOE SALDANA), Groot (voiced by VIN DIESEL) and Mantis (POM KLEMENTIEFF) -- end up saving Thor who they find adrift in space. They learn about Thanos' plans from him, something that doesn't sit well with Drax whose family Thanos killed in the past, or Gamora who, like her sister Nebula (KAREN GILLAN), were "adopted" by the villain as children.

Also needing saving are Wanda Maximoff (ELIZABETH OLSEN), a.k.a. Scarlet Witch, and her android boyfriend, Vision (PAUL BETTANY), who've come under attack by more of Thanos' goons who want the Infinity Stone that's planted in Vision's forehead. Thankfully for them, Steve Rogers (CHRIS EVANS), Natasha Romanoff (SCARLETT JOHANSSON), and Falcon (ANTHONY MACKIE) show up just in time.

Realizing they're going to need extra help, they head for the hidden, high-tech capital of Wakanda where they join forces with that land's ruler, Black Panther (CHADWICK BOSEMAN), his top general, Okoye (DANAI GURIRA), Rogers' best friend, Bucky Barnes (SEBASTIAN STAN), and others, all while T'Challa's sister, Shuri (LETITIA WRIGHT), tries to figure out how to get the stone out of Vision's head without killing him, and before Thanos' army of monsters break through the Wakandan force field and attack the army inside that.

As various battles take place on various fronts, the assemblage of superheroes tries to stop Thanos from collecting all six Infinity Stones and unleashing mass murder across the universe.

They will if they're into superhero movies.

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!!!
