QUICK TAKE:
Dramatic Thriller: Israeli agents attempt to find, capture and extract an infamous Nazi officer -- responsible for countless deaths in the Holocaust during WWII -- from Argentina to make him stand trial in Israel.
PLOT:
It's 1960 and Israel's intelligence agency, Mossad, has received word that infamous Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann (BEN KINGSLEY) might be living under an alias in Argentina with a wife and young adult son, Klaus (JOE ALWYN), who tells everyone that he's the man's nephew. With intel gathered by a young woman, Sylvia Hermann (HALEY LU RICHARDSON), who befriends Klaus, Mossad officer Isser Harel (LIOR RAZ) puts together a small team to find, capture and extract Eichmann from the country. While most of them would like to see the Nazi dead, their orders are to capture and bring him back to Israel to stand trial for his direct involvement with the countless deaths in the Holocaust during WWII.

The team includes -- but isn't limited to -- Peter Malkin (OSCAR ISAAC) who lost a sister in the Holocaust, and his former girlfriend, physician Hanna Regev (MELANIE LAURENT), who's reluctant to go on another such mission, what with having lost a target in the past from too much anesthesia. Others include Rafi Eitan (NICK KROLL); Ephraim Ilian (OHAD KNOLLER); Moshe Tabor (GREG HILL), the most volatile of the bunch; and Zvi Aharoni (MICHAEL ARONOV) who serves as the interrogator and the only face that Eichmann will see in the safe house they're using.

Working in a tight time window and needing Eichmann to sign a letter authorizing his removal, the team does what they can to make that happen, with Peter secretly breaking protocol by getting to know the man, hoping to get him to sign. At the same time, they must contend with Nazi sympathizers, led by the powerful local official, Carlos Fuldner (PP RAPAZOTE), who try to find and rescue Eichmann.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Unless they're interested in the real story or are fans of someone in the cast, it doesn't seem that likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For disturbing thematic content and related violent images, and for some language.

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!!!
