Action: A man learns that not only has he been reincarnated through the ages, but also that his former self hid a weapon that his adversary wanted and now still wants to use to destroy the world.

Evan McCauley (MARK WAHLBERG) is a troubled soul who was diagnosed as a schizophrenic as a teen. With a history of violence, he has a hard time landing or holding down a job, and thus gets by -- including being paid in antipsychotic medication -- by crafting specialized weapons for others, something he has an apparent innate talent for doing.

Little does he know that he's just one of several hundred so-called Infinites who've been reincarnated countless times. Yet, unlike the rest -- that are split between the Believes who want to protect and promote growth and the Nihilists who want to kill everything -- he doesn't have a memory of his past lives.

That is, at least so far, something Nora Brightman (SOPHIE COOKSON) wants to awaken in him after saving him from his age-old enemy, Bathurst (CHIWETEL EJIOFOR). It seems that in the past, Evan was Heinrich Treadway (DYLAN O'BRIEN) who managed to stop Bathurst (RUPERT FRIEND) from killing all life on Earth via a high-tech weapon that he hid before perishing.

Now the current day Bathurst wants to get his hands back on that and complete the job -- to end the cycle of reincarnation. That's something Nora and her cohorts Kovic (J”HANNES HAUKUR J”HANNESSON) and Trace (KAE ALEXANDER) want to prevent, thus necessitating a trip to see The Artisan (JASON MANTZOUKAS) who might be able to shock Evan's past-life memories back into his consciousness.

Some might if they're fans of action films and/or anyone in the cast.
For sequences of strong violence, some bloody images, strong language, and brief drug use.

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!!!
