QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi: A neuroscientist replicates his family members who've been killed in a car accident.
PLOT:
Will Foster (KEANU REEVES) is a neuroscientist working for Bionyne Labs in Puerto Rico. He leads a team, which includes cloning expert Ed (THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH), that's attempting to transfer all things brain-related from recently deceased donors into the heads of androids, those allowing those people to live on after bodily death. But while they're getting closer to succeeding, all of their experiments have failed so far, something that doesn't please their boss, Jones (JOHN ORTIZ).

While heading off for vacation at night, a chain reaction series of events leads to a single car accident that claims the lives the Will's family -- wife Mona (ALICE EVE) and their three kids, Sophie (EMILY ALYN LIND), Matt (EMJAY ANTHONY) and Zoe (ARIA LYRIC LEABU). Realizing he has no time to waste and not wanting to lose them, Will summons Ed to the accident scene where they transfer the consciousnesses of Mona and the kids onto hard drives.

While Ed worries about the many things that could go wrong, Will wants him to clone his family back to their state right before the accident, thus allowing Will the chance to transfer their consciousnesses into the replica bodies. From that point on, they must contend with the consequences of doing so.

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!!!
