QUICK TAKE:
Action: A small group of covert spies tries to stop a villain from changing the course and outcome of WWI.
PLOT:

It's the mid-1910s, and a mysterious villain has decided to upend world peace by having Archduke Ferdinand of Austria assassinated. That results in WWI, and aristocratic pacifist Orlando Oxford (RALPH FIENNES) is determined not to allow his barely underage teenage son, Conrad (HARRIS DICKINSON), to join the war, all to uphold a promise he made a decade earlier to his now late wife. Despite Conrad desperately wanting to go to war, British General Kitchener (CHARLES DANCE) assures Orlando that should Conrad sign up once of age, he will never see combat.

As a result, and with the help of his two assistants -- Shola (DJIMON HOUNSOU) and Polly (GEMMA ARTERTON) -- Orlando directs his attention toward figuring out the lead villain's identity, all while dealing with his various henchmen including Grigori Rasputin (RHYS IFANS). With the villain determined to prevent America from joining the war through risqué subterfuge, Orlando and his small team must race against time to prevent Germany from winning the war.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
They probably will if they're fans of the previous two "Kingsman" movies.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For sequences of strong/bloody violence, language, and some sexual material.


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!!!
