QUICK TAKE:
Dramatic Thriller: A woman trains to become an assassin in order to avenge the deaths of her parents and siblings in a plane crash.
PLOT:
It's been three years since Stephanie Patrick (BLAKE LIVELY) lost her parents and siblings in a plane crash that claimed the lives of several hundred other people. Since then, her life has been a downward spiral into drugs and prostitution, with bruises all over her body displaying the sort of clientele she's servicing.

She thinks the next man who's booked time with her will be just more of the same, but he isn't interested in having sex with her. Instead, Keith Proctor (RAZA JAFFREY) is a reporter who believes that the crash wasn't an accident and instead was the result of a bombing. And not just that, but that the bomb maker, Reza (TAWFEEK BARHOM), is freely walking the streets of London.

After being unable to kill that terrorist herself when given the chance, and following something bad that happens to that reporter, Stephanie seeks out his source, known to her only by map coordinates. She ends traveling a long way to find Iain Boyd (JUDE LAW), a former intelligence agent who knows what's going on but initially wants nothing to do with her. She eventually wears down that opinion, however, and he ends up training her in the ways of being an assassin.

When he thinks she's ready, he sends her on her way, with marching orders to find another former intelligence agent, Marc Serra (STERLING K. BROWN), who knows who was behind the bombing beyond Reza. Armed with that information and her new set of assassin skills, Stephanie sets out to dole out justice on those responsible for killing her family.

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!!!
