Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (6 ):

The acting is sub-par, the plot is riddled with holes, and the scares are simply pathetic; they consist of grown people wearing Halloween masks jumping out of the shadows. Worst of all, the movie is excruciatingly boring; not even the scenes of research and discovery bring any chills. Not to mention that, now that 11/11/11 has passed without any doom, the movie is already obsolete.

Earlier in 2011, the director of the original Saw made a very good horror movie, Insidious, using suggestion and off-screen chills. Now, Darren Lynn Bousman, the director of Saw II, Saw III, and Saw IV, tries the same thing, with significantly lesser results. 11-11-11 smacks of being a quickie meant to cash in on a superstition behind a particular date and rushed into production to meet this deadline.

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.
