QUICK TAKE:
Sci-Fi/Action: An operative tries to save the world while contending with objects and people that can move and operate in reverse.
PLOT:

The Protagonist (JOHN DAVID WASHINGTON) is an operative who, after proving his worth and allegiance to the cause, is tasked with an even bigger mission. And that's to save the world from an existential threat stemming from forces in the future who are sending back objects and people to the present where they function in reverse, something that could ultimately lead to the end of everything.

Teamed with fellow agent Neil (ROBERT PATTINSON), The Protagonist meets arms dealer Priya (DIMPLE KAPADIA), but his ultimate goal is to find an even more notorious arms dealer, Andrei Sator (KENNETH BRANAGH), who's somehow involved with the backward moving elements.

Complicating matters is Sator's wife, Kat (ELIZABETH DEBICKI), who wants out of their marriage but is being held hostage by the fact that if she leaves she'll never see their young son again. Feeling responsible for her, The Protagonist must not only try to keep her safe, but also figure out exactly what's going on and how to stop it before it's too late.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of Christopher Nolan movies, they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For intense sequences of violence and action, some suggestive references 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!!!
