Not my favorite

(I’m 13 by the way, for some reason my review is a parent review.) It’s not a great movie, it wasn’t that interesting for me. There’s gory moments, but they weren’t that bad. My 9 year old sister was even in the room for some of the movie. There was one f bomb pretty early in the movie, but not used sexually. Overall, this movie is not inappropriate, but not worth the watch.
