QUICK TAKE:
Action-Drama: A man possessing psychic powers and an ability to absorb physical punishment without breaking bones or suffering life-threatening injuries comes into conflict with an old nemesis and a frightening new threat.
PLOT:
Security guard David Dunn (BRUCE WILLIS) was once the only survivor of a major train derailment that killed every passenger onboard except him. He didn't suffer a single scratch. That was years ago. In the present, he is a vigilante who uses his psychic abilities and the computer skills of his son, Joseph (SPENCER TREAT CLARK), to track Kevin Crumb (JAMES McAVOY), a disturbed man who abducts teenage girls and has 24 distinct personalities.

Both men are apprehended during a late-night showdown and sent to a psychiatric facility where David is reacquainted with his old nemesis, Elijah (SAMUEL L. JACKSON), a.k.a. "Mr. Glass." Elijah, whose brittle bones have left him extremely susceptible to injury all of his life, has been at the hospital for years after masterminding several major accidents to try and find his exact opposite (David). He is visited often by his mother (CHARLAYNE WOODARD).

All three men are placed under the care of Dr. Ellie Staple (SARAH PAULSON), a psychiatrist who specializes in people who believe they have superhuman abilities. She tries to convince each that they have created a shared delusion that they are superheroes (and super-villains) but are really normal and suffering from childhood trauma. Dr. Staple enlists the help of Casey (ANYA TAYLOR-JOY), who survived a previous abduction by Kevin because she was able to appeal to the decency of one of his personalities...the real Kevin. But Elijah has other plans for all of them.

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13

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!!!
