QUICK TAKE:
Drama: A former motocross champion, wounded while deployed in Afghanistan, tries to return to racing where he faces a new upstart challenger.
PLOT:
Marshall Bennett (MICHAEL ROARK) was a motocross champion before he joined the military and ended up deployed as a Sergeant in the Army's Motorcycle Unit. Rescuing his fellow soldier, Riley (MICHAEL KING), he ends up driving over an IED tripwire that injures both men.

A year later, he's still recovering and living with his wife, Sophie (ALLISON PAIGE), and their young son on his dad, Cal's (TRACE ADKINS), farm. To make ends meet, he works in a motorcycle shop run by Cyrus (ALI AFSHAR), whose cousin, Tony (TONY PASHA PANTERRA), has a motocross racing team featuring current champion Kurt Walker (BRANDO EATON) and his up and coming younger brother, Chris (HUNTER CLOWDUS).

With Marshall having opted not to have his ankle fused back at the time of the injury, he runs the risk of any small issue potentially meaning he might not ever walk again. And that has Sophie over-protective of him, but Marshall can't get rid of that itch to ride.

Despite the danger of him ending up permanently disabled should he be injured another time, he starts racing again, partly to help pay his dad's mounting farming bills. As he starts to regain his form, and with Sophie trying to suppress her worries and support him, he ends up competing directly with the Walker brothers.

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!!!
