Drama: Months after the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, remaining American forces try to figure out where the Japanese will strike next and then mount a defense and counterattack.
Following the surprise Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the American Navy in the Pacific arena is severely crippled, something not lost on Admiral Chester Nimitz (WOODY HARRELSON) who's just been named as the Commander in Chief there. He relies on Navy intelligence officer Lieutenant Commander Edwin T. Layton (PATRICK WILSON) for intel on what the Japanese fleet might next have in store, with Layton not wanting a repeat of the December 7th attack that he warned was likely coming.

Based on the work of his code breakers, he guesses the Japanese -- led by Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto (ETSUSHI TOYOKAWA), Vice Admiral Chuichi Nagumo (JUN KUNIMURA) and Rear Admiral Tamon Yamaguchi (TADANOBU ASANO) -- are likely going to target the Midway Islands in hopes of destroying the remaining American fleet, especially after the bombing raids on Tokyo carried out by Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle (AARON ECKHART) and his squadron.

Under the command of Vice Admiral William "Bull" Halsey (DENNIS QUAID), those aboard the USS Enterprise prepare for what's coming next. That includes Lieutenant Commander Clarence Wade McClusky (LUKE EVANS) who's in charge of the torpedo and dive bombers. Richard "Dick" Best (ED SKREIN) is his best pilot, but one who takes risks, much to the concern of his wife, Anne (MANDY MOORE), and tail gunner, James Murray (KEEAN JOHNSON), but who's appreciated by good friend Clarence Earle Dickinson (LUKE KLEINTANK) and the likes of Aviation Machinist Mate Bruno Gaido (NICK JONAS).

With Layton narrowing down the time frame and location of the likely Japanese attack, all involved prepare for a battle that will prove to be the turning point in WWII.

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!!!
