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.

Action packed- fast paced.

Good movie, fast paced, full of action. Great actors. Keeps you guessing the entire movie. I’d say children over 13yrs, if mature enough. Some language, violence, drug mention. There is one scene where a couple is arrested at their home from their bed, but no sexual activity. Female is wearing tank top and shorts, and it might be a little much for younger kids, but nothing “showing”.
