QUICK TAKE:
Action: An elite team of CIA ops tries to get a foreign defector out of his country in exchange for him giving up the location of missing cesium that's going to be used in a terrorist attack.
PLOT:
James Silva (MARK WAHLBERG) is the leader of an elite paramilitary team that operates under the auspices of the CIA. Sixteen months after taking out a Russian safe house where the order from their "eyes in the sky" commander, Bishop (JOHN MALKOVICH), went from capture to kill, the small unit finds itself in Indocarr City in Southeast Asia. It seems amounts of cesium have been stolen and positioned at various points around the world to be used by terrorists.

The team appears to catch a break when one of that country's elite tactical agents, Li Noor (IKO UWAIS), surrenders at the U.S. embassy. In his possession is a computer hard drive with the location of that cesium, but it's encrypted and on a self-destruct timer. If given asylum and flown out of the country, he'll give the code to stop and unlock that.

With just a small operating window where a CIA plane can land and take off with him, James and his team -- Alice Kerr (LAUREN COHAN), Sam Snow (RONDA ROUSEY) and William "Dougie" Douglas III (CARLO ALBAN) -- try to get Li from the embassy to the extraction point. But they must make their way through the city and local forces that don't want to let them succeed, no matter the collateral damage that might occur.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They might if they're into hard-hitting actions films and/or are fans of anyone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong violence and language throughout.

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!!!
