Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Would have liked to have a warning...

I would have liked to have had a warning about the scantily clad women and men that appear in one of the first city scenes. I think barely there bikinis are completely inappropriate for children's movies. It normalizes women's bodies being used as entertainment. Who ever reviewed this movies obviously thinks side cleavage coming out of bikini tops is perfectly ok for kids because there was no sexy warning.

A step down

How 20 years flies by. And, this is a dark sequel. Great visual effects and editing. But as many mentioned there is some cruel scenes. Australia counts as the consumerism of course.
