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.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
age 11+

The movie is only a little better than ok. semi good.

This movie does have a good message. This film is more placed in the suspense genre, rather that the action genre. The audience should listen closely on the dialog in order to understand elements of the movie. Some young children could be capable of handling the "mature" material.

This title has:

Too much swearing
