QUICK TAKE:
Action: A small team of immortal mercenaries must contend with others wanting to take their DNA for various reasons, all while adding a new member to their team.
PLOT:

Andy (CHARLIZE THERON) is the oldest member of a small team of immortal mercenaries who've fought the good fight and then some for centuries and more. While she lost another immortal, Quynh (VAN VERONICA NGO), long ago, she's kept her current team -- comprised of Booker (MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS), Joe (MARWAN KENZARI), and Nicky (LUCA MARINELLI) -- together and under the radar for the past several hundred years. But now they've been contacted by former CIA agent Copley (CHIWETEL EJIOFOR) who hires them to rescue kidnapped children. In reality, however, that's a set-up as Copley is working for big pharma CEO Steven Merrick (HARRY MELLING) who wants Andy and her team captured so that he can profit from selling to the world a new drug based on their extracted DNA.

As Andy sends the rest of the team to avenge that treachery, she sets off to bring recently killed Marine corporal Nile Freeman (KIKI LAYNE) into their fold, having learned that she's immortal like them. The young woman initially wants no part of this shocking and unwelcome development, but Andy informs her that this is her new reality. As Nile tries to adjust, Andy is determined to hunt down Copley and Merrick and make them pay for their actions.

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.
