Action: A street fighter trains to become a ninja warrior while getting tangled up in a Japanese clan's family feud.

Having witnessed, as a young boy, his father murdered, Snake Eyes (HENRY GOLDING) has long wanted to avenge that death, and takes out his aggression as a street fighter. His prowess at doing so has drawn the intention of Kenta (TAKEHIRO HIRA) who wants Snake Eyes to work for him in exchange for finding and delivering his father's killer to him.

Snake Eyes agrees, but when Kinta wants him to kill Tommy (ANDREW KOJI), he instead saves the man and thus draws the wrath of Kinta, barely escaping with his life. It's then that he learns that Tommy is next in line to lead an ancient Japanese clan known as the Arashikage, currently headed by Tommy's grandmother, Sen (ERI ISHIDA) and he wants Snake Eyes to be his right-hand warrior. That doesn't sit well with the clan's chief of security, Akiko (HARUKA ABE), but Sen will allow it if Snake Eyes can pass a series of tests -- conducted by Blind Master (PETER MENSAH) and Hard Master (IKO UWAIS) -- to become a trusted ninja.

But at the same time, he continues working for Kinta who was previously kicked out of the Arashikage, and now wants to get his hands on a supernatural jewel with incredible powers. As does Baroness (ÚRSULA CORBERÓ) who works for the terrorist organization known as Cobra, with her presence drawing the attention of G.I. Joe team member Scarlett (SAMARA WEAVING). Torn by his dual allegiance, but still fueled by his desire to avenge his father, Snake Eyes must decide what to do.

They probably will if they're fans of the G.I. Joe universe.
For sequences of strong violence and brief strong language.

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!!!
