Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The choreography of the action sequences rarely makes sense, the dialogue sounds strained, and the characters are one-note stereotypes. Christopher Moore is an accomplished satirical novelist (Bite Me, Lamb, The Stupidest Angel), but he and his collaborator, screenwriter-director Ian Corson, display no facility for comics scripting in this muddled, unfunny, annoying graphic novel.

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.
