QUICK TAKE:
War Drama/Action: A newly assigned captain tries to protect a convoy of ships heading across the North Atlantic from waiting German U-boats.
PLOT:

It's 1942 and newly assigned Captain Ernest Krause (TOM HANKS) has the command of the USS Keeling, a.k.a. Greyhound, one of four Fletcher Class Destroyers deployed to protect a convoy of thirty-seven Allied ships heading across the North Atlantic toward Liverpool.

With air support unavailable in the middle of the trip known as "the black pit," Ernest along with his crew -- that includes XO Charlie Cole (STEPHEN GRAHAM), navigator Lt. Watson (TOM BRITTNEY), sonar operator Epstein (KARL CLUSMAN), and crewmate Bushnell (CHET HANKS), among many others -- must keep a watchful ear and eye for German U-boats patrolling the waters, while steward Cleveland (ROB MORGAN) tries to keep the captain fed.

As the 50-hour duration of the lack of air support slowly ticks by, Ernest must use all of his training, smarts and instinct to find and sink the subs all while being a target themselves.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those into WWII action movies or who are fans of Hanks or anyone else in the cast might show some interest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For war-related action/violence and brief strong 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!!!
