QUICK TAKE:
Action: Two men separately try to find the source of a new synthetic drug that gives users superpowers that last five minutes at a time.
PLOT:

Robin (DOMINIQUE FISHBACK) is a teenager growing up in New Orleans who's quite gifted at rapping. She's also a dealer on the streets trying to make money to pay for her sick mom's medical expenses. But the drug she's peddling is new and it's one that gives its users superpowers that vary from person to person, although all last just five minutes.

Realizing he needs to use those to even the playing field with criminals on the same, local cop Frank (JOSEPH GORDON-LEVITT) buys and uses the product from Robin while trying to find the main source of the drug. That turns out to be a man named Biggie (RODRIGO SANTORO) who's hoping to move from local sales to international, deep-pocketed buyers.

Also searching for that source is Art (JAMIE FOXX), a former soldier who was experimented on with the drug, all of which resulted in his daughter being born with such powers. Now that she's been kidnapped by forces that want to extract her biochemistry and synthesize that to make such superpowers permanent for users, he's trying to find out who's behind all of that so that he can rescue his daughter. With his path colliding with that of Frank and Robin, they end up teaming up to find the girl and stop the various villains.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
With A-list actors and a superpower plotline, it's a good bet many older preteens and overall teenagers might be interested.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For violence, bloody images, drug content and some 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!!!
