QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Action: A top-level spy must not only contend with a dangerous criminal trying to destroy his agency, but also being turned into a pigeon by a gadgets expert.
PLOT:
Lance Sterling (voice of WILL SMITH) is one of the best top-secret spies around, something not lost on his ego. But when he finds himself framed for stealing an important device -- by arch-villain Killian (voice of BEN MENDELSOHN) who changed his appearance to match that of Lance and thus make the crime seem real -- he must think outside of the box.

With internal affairs agent Marcy Kappel (voice of RASHIDA JONES) hot on his trail with her assistants Eyes (voice of KAREN GILLAN) and Ears (voice of DJ KHALED), that results in a visit to gadget guru Walter Beckett (voice of TOM HOLLAND). Ironically, Lance just fired him for the unorthodox but nonetheless effect tool Walter had created for him.

Walter wants to help and Lance ends up accidentally drinking the invisibility potion Walter had been working on. But instead of that making him disappear visually, that formula turns Lance into a pigeon. Walter's theory is that no one pays attention to such birds and thus Lance will be able to get around unnoticed and thus better be able to find and stop Killian.

With that villain prepared to unleash his squadron of deadly drones onto the spy agency headquarters, Lance must try to save the day, all while having to become accustomed to and best take advantage of his new physical state.

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!!!
