Dramatic Thriller: After trying to turn himself in to the FBI, a bank robber must contend with two agents trying to take his stolen money for themselves and their efforts to eliminate any witnesses and obstacles in their way.

Tom Dolan (LIAM NEESON) is a former Marine who's turned to a life of crime in that he's anonymously robbed $9 million from twelve banks in seven states over the past several years. Known as the "In and Out Bandit," he's managed to elude the authorities so far, but now that he's met and fallen for divorced grad school student Annie Wilkins (KATE WALSH), he needs to clear his conscience. Thus, and while keeping her in the dark, he calls the FBI to turn himself in, with the stipulation being that by returning all of the money he receive a reduced sentence of two years with visitation rights.

Supervising agents Samuel Baker (ROBERT PATRICK) and recently divorced Sean Meyers (JEFFREY DONOVAN) figure he's just yet another person claiming to be the bandit, but following protocol Baker sends junior agents John Nivens (JAI COURTNEY) and Ramon Hall (ANTHONY RAMOS) to check out Tom's story. Upon meeting him, they likewise don't believe his story, but take the self-storage key he gives them and head to the facility where Annie works as the manager.

There, they find millions in cash, and believing they can get away with taking it for themselves, Nivens convinces Hall to go along with the crime. But Hall doesn't realize Nivens is planning on eliminating all loose ends, and things go south when Nivens tries to kill Tom but ends up killing another FBI agent instead when that man unexpectedly shows up. Tom manages to escape and then tries to figure out how to keep Annie safe all while planning his revenge on the FBI agents who are now framing him.

Some older teens might be interested, especially if they're into movies featuring Neeson as the action star.

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!!!
