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.

I love all the Riddick movies and this one is great! Thank you for adding unrated versions... If you raise your kids to understand what they see in movies is fake then a mature teen can handle it... Some parents are just too sensitive. Nudity is ok as well and not like the prudes that think anything sexual is evil. Lol Jeff, if gore and language bother you then maybe you should go watch an animated Disney movie.

Not needed

I don't think all these movies these days need nudity it takes away from the story line and the actors in the movies. Also, we have enough blood and gore and bad language in the real world, I understand certain things sell better, but seriously if you have to do it to sell it, it's not worth it in my opinion.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
