Dramatic Thriller: A widowed Vietnam vet goes up against a Mexican drug cartel to ensure that an orphaned boy safely gets to his relatives in Chicago.

Jim Hanson (LIAM NEESON) is a widowed former Marine who's about to lose his Arizona ranch due to his late wife's medical bills. Things get worse for him when a single Mexican mom, Rosa (TERESA RUIZ), and her son, Miguel (JACOB PEREZ), run in front of his truck, what with having just passed through a hole in the border fence. They're running from a Mexican drug cartel due to Miguel's uncle having wronged them and now they want revenge.

Jim doesn't want to get involved, but during a confrontation with the cartel's goon, Mauricio (JUAN PABLO RABA), and his small squad of hitmen, he ends up killing the leader's brother while Rosa is also fatally shot. Jim manages to escape and delivers the boy to the border patrol agency where his stepdaughter, Sarah Reynolds (KATHERYN WINNICK), works.

But after seeing the cartel waiting nearby, he decides to take the boy to an address Rosa earlier gave him before dying. The only problem is it's in Chicago and Mauricio has no intention of letting the boy get away. And thus begins their frantic road trip with the unlikely duo getting to know each other all while trying to stay one step ahead of the killers who are after them.

They might if they enjoy Liam Neeson action-dramas movies where he puts the bad guys in their place.
For violence, some bloody images, 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!!!
