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.

Once they go to the restroom you know something interesting is going to happen

The story is a bit contrived but is still very entertaining. Saldaña sells it...however impossible the stunts seem. The film revels in it's extreme and cartoon-ish violence. Every time she went to the restroom I knew there was going to be some elaborate jump out of a window. Although predictable in many spots I enjoyed seeing Saldaña "convince" the CIA to help her.

Great movie but not for teens.

Common Sense miss spoke when it stated no nudity. In the shower scene from the top angle her nipple is seen. Gotta pay closer attention CSM
