QUICK TAKE:
Drama: An astronaut is sent on a mission to stop a destructive energy surge that seems to be emanating from Neptune and may involve his long-missing father.
PLOT:
It's the near future and Roy McBride (BRAD PITT) is an astronaut best-known for never losing his cool under any circumstance and for being the son of legendary astronaut Clifford McBride (TOMMY LEE JONES). While working on the International Space Antenna, Roy is nearly killed by a destructive energy surge that strikes Earth. He's then informed that the surge appears to be emanating from Neptune and that Clifford -- who left with the Lima Project crew twenty-nine years ago to search for intelligent life out in the cosmos but disappeared sixteen years into the mission -- might somehow be involved.

No longer with his wife, Eve (LIV TYLER), Roy has no issues with his new assignment -- to travel to Mars via the Moon and attempt to get a message off to his father that might stop that man from whatever he might be doing. With the help of former veteran astronaut Colonel Pruitt (DONALD SUTHERLAND) and Helen Lantos (RUTH NEGGA) who runs operations on Mars, Roy tries to do just that, all while dealing with conflicted emotions regarding his dad.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those into movies about space travel and/or who are fans of Brad Pitt or anyone else in the cast might be interested in seeing it.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some violence and bloody images, and for brief strong 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!!!
