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 movie is very gory. I saw it when I was nine with my friend we both loved it but that is because we like gory movies so if you do not like gory movies then I would no suggest this movie. You see legs with no body and sharks eating parts of body's. From a 9 year old.
