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.

age 9+

Bit dissapointing, but still pretty solid action.

This is no average Disney movie. It features lots of mildly violent sequences which are racy and quite fun, but for many younger children this violence will be too much for them, and with a long run time they might even get bored. But it does have pretty good acting and some light humour thrown in for good measure as well.

Best for 13 and up

I showed this movie to a group of 11 year olds and I wish I had chosen another film. After the kids said "This is really violent.," I started watching. The cast is great, the story is interesting, but there are some very violent scenes. Unfortunately, the movie goes too far with some of the disturbing scenes including a massacre of Native Americans. And, yes they could have made this movie 30 minutes shorter.
