Action-Thriller: A U.S. sub and her untested commander are ordered to Russia to rescue a Navy SEAL team tasked with extracting the Russian President, who's been the target of a military coup.
In Russian waters, both an American submarine and the Russian sub it had been tracking suffer major damage in a coordinated attack. The USS Arkansas under the command of the untested Captain Joe Glass (GERARD BUTLER) is ordered to investigate and prevent World War III if possible. Along the way, Glass has to deal with an insubordinate XO, Brian Edwards (CARTER MacINTYRE); gain the trust of a captured Russian sub captain, Andropov (Michael NYQVIST); and earn the loyalty of his new crew.

Little does he know that both subs were sunk on the orders of Admiral Dmitri Durov (MICHAEL GOR), a member of Russia's Defense Ministry who has successfully staged a military coup on President Zakarin (ALEXANDER DIACHENKO) who he sees as weak and indecisive. Durov moves quickly to consolidate his power and reposition the Russian fleet for a showdown with the American navy.

In Washington, Pentagon commander John Fisk (COMMON) quarrels with NSA operative Jayne Norquist (LINDA CARDELLINI) and Charles Donnegan (GARY OLDMAN), Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, over how to respond to the threat. President Dover (CAROLINE GOODALL) ultimately decides to go to DEFCON 2, move the U.S. fleet to a defensive posture in the Atlantic Ocean, and green-light Fisk's plan to send a four-member Navy SEAL team led by Bill Beaman (TOBY STEPHENS) to extract Zakarin and escape aboard the USS Arkansas.

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!!!
