Action: A number of scientists and others must contend with an eco-terrorist's plan to release gargantuan monsters around the globe in order to rebalance the natural order of the world.
Following the death of their son caused by the widespread damage that resulted from Godzilla battling other monsters a few years back in San Francisco, scientists Mark (KYLE CHANDLER) and Emma Russell (VERA FARMIGA) have split up, with their teenage daughter, Madison (MILLIE BOBBY BROWN), now living with their mother at a Monarch facility, one of many that continues to research monsters. Emma has continued to work on a device known as Orca that can communicate in a way with monsters via operating on a frequency they understand, and that's put to use when Mothra emerges from her cocoon as a giant worm.

But then eco-terrorist Alan Jonah (CHARLES DANCE) shows up with armed men who kill nearly everyone at the facility, steal the Orca, and kidnap both Emma and Madison. Believing humans are destroying the world, Jonah wants to unleash all of the world's dormant monsters and let them rebalance the natural order of the world -- all of which means millions if not billions of people might die.

That doesn't sit well with Monarch officials such as Dr. Ishiro Serizawa (KEN WATANABE), Vivienne Graham (SALLY HAWKINS), Rick Stanton (BRADLEY WHITFORD) and Sam Coleman (THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH) who think that Mark might be able to help stop Jonah, what with more than a working knowledge of the Orca device, having devised and developed that with Emma in the past. Mark is willing to help, but only if military types such as Col. Diane Foster (AISHA HINDS), Chief Warrant Officer Barnes (O'SHEA JACKSON JR.) and others of service kill all of the monsters, including Godzilla, something Dr. Serizawa is wholeheartedly against.

But with the likes of Mothra, Rodan and especially the three-headed Ghidorah now on the loose, they come to realize that all of humankind is now in danger and their only hope might be Godzilla, the king of all monsters.

If they're into Godzilla or other monster movies, they probably will.
For sequences of monster action violence and destruction, 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!!!
