Superhero Action: Having spent several millennia on Earth, the latest in obscurity, a group of immortal superheroes regroup to battle monsters that have mysteriously reemerged.

Seven thousand years ago, a powerful Celestial being known as Arishem sent a group of immortal superheroes, the Eternals, to Earth to protect the primitive human species from monsters known as Deviants. Led by Ajak (SALMA HAYEK) who possesses instant healing powers, the group consisted of Ikaris (RICHARD MADDEN) who can fly and shoot lasers from his eyes; Sersi (GEMMA CHAN) who can turn non-living substances into other materials; and Thena (ANGELIA JOLIE) a warrior with magical weapons.

There's also Kingo (KUMAIL NANJIANI) who can summon and fire masses of explosive energy; young Sprite (LIA McHUGH) who can create duplicate illusions of anything; and technology master Phastos (BRIAN TYREE HENRY). Then there's Makkari (LAUREN RIDLOFF) who can zip around at incredible speeds; Gilgamesh (DON LEE) who possesses a magically powerful punch; and Druig (BARRY KEOGHAN) who can control human minds. Yet, like the others, he has been ordered not to intervene in any human affairs that don't involve the Deviants.

With the latter seemingly vanquished five centuries ago, the Eternals have waited for orders back to their home planet of Olympia. With that not happening, they've split up and blended in with the rest of humanity, such as Sersi who teaches in London alongside her boyfriend, Dane (KIT HARINGTON), while Kingo is a Bollywood star with his faithful assistant, Karun (HARISH PATEL), always by his side.

And then out of nowhere, a Deviant attacks Sersi and Sprite, resulting in the group reuniting to protect humanity from the monsters, unaware of the greater danger they're facing.

If they're fans of Marvel superhero movies, they probably will.
For fantasy violence and action, some language and brief sexuality.

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!!!
