QUICK TAKE:
Action: American troops try to defend a remote and poorly located outpost from repeated Taliban attacks in Afghanistan.
PLOT:

It's 2009 and deep in the valley of three mountains in Afghanistan's Nuristan Province near the town of Kamdesh lies Combat Outpost Keating, a U.S. military base located there as part of America's counterinsurgency strategy during the War in Afghanistan.

The commander there is First Lt Benjamin Keating (ORLANDO BLOOM) who believes that the success of their mission -- not to mention their own safety - lies in having good relations with the local elders in helping them against Taliban-backed forces.

But Keating and those serving under him, including Staff Sergeant Clint Romesha (SCOTT EASTWOOD), First Lt Andrew Bundermann (TAYLOR JOHN SMITH), Staff Sgt Ty Carter (CALEB LANDRY JONES), and various others, must contend with routine random attacks from the steep hills above the base. With mortars being the only thing that fends off such attacks, the soldiers realize they're sitting ducks, with word that the military is planning on shutting down the base.

Before that can happen, however, and following a revolving door of commanding officers, the Taliban mounts a coordinated attack involving hundreds of fighters. With no support from the outside and dwindling supplies, the soldiers try to fend off the attackers and hold the fort.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're into movies about the U.S. military and/or are fans of anyone in the cast, they might be interested.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For war violence and grisly images, pervasive language, and sexual references.

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.
