QUICK TAKE:
Horror: A zombie attack survivor is hired to assemble a team to retrieve $200 million from a casino vault in the walled-off, zombie-filled city of Las Vegas.
PLOT:

Sometime after zombies were accidentally unleashed on Las Vegas and eventually overran the city that's now walled off, those who acted heroically during the outbreak are working regular jobs. Having had to kill his wife after she turned into a zombie, much to the horror of his now-estranged daughter, Kate (ELLA PURNELL), Scott Ward (DAVE BAUTISTA) is flipping burgers and dreaming of having his own food truck. Maria Cruz (ANA DE LA REGUERA) works as a mechanic and Vanderhoe (OMARI HARDWICK) is a physical therapist.

Familiar with Scott's exploits, Vegas casino owner Bly Tanaka (HIROYUKI SANADA) comes to him with a proposition. With $200 million still in his casino vault now off the books due to the insurance payout, Tanaka offers to pay Scott one-quarter of that to put together a team, get into the walled city, grab the cash, and get out of Dodge. All while contending with the zombies and the government's plans to nuke the city to rid the world of the undead.

Scott immediately gets Maria and Vanderhoe on board and then recruits social media zombie killer star Mikey Guzman (RAUL CASTILLO) and his equally proficient cohort, Chambers (SAMANTHA WIN); chopper pilot Marianna Peters (TIG NOTARO); and safecracker Dieter (MATTHIAS SCHWEIGHÖFER), with Tanaka's head of security, Martin (GARRET DILLAHUNT), being forced onto the team.

Needing a way in, Scott reluctantly decides to use Kate for that, what with her working as a humanitarian volunteer at a detainee camp near Vegas where she must contend with the likes of lecherous guards such as Burt Cummings (THEO ROSSI). Kate agrees to help, but only if she gets to come along, what with her friend, Getta (HUMA QURESHI), having been transported with two other women into the city by mercenary Lily, a.k.a. The Coyote (NORA ARNEZEDER), only to not return.

Scott and Kate agree on the conditions of her joining the team that then heads into the city in hopes of retrieving the money, all while contending with the nuke countdown and the hordes of zombies and their smarter-than-average, alpha leaders.

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!!!
