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.

pretty good thriller.

If you like movies where someone has to hack into a computer or is being followed by the FBI than this is the movie.

The reviewers on this website must love big greedy corporations

Wow, the people who run this website don't have an agenda or anything do they?? I'm not sure the guy who reviewed this actually watched the movie, since some of his facts are just plain wrong. They can't come up with a more positive message than the Asian slurs??? How about the little guy standing up to the greedy corporation who is trying to stamp out the free market. I'm not sure what their definition of much is, but there's not that much drinking in this movie and nobody is ever drunk. I am starting to wonder about the people responsible for this website, either they are biased toward a particular way of thinking or they are just making stuff up. I'm not saying this movie was super spectacular, it wasn't, but don't believe everything you read on this site. It's funny how a movie that questions the actions of the super-rich and greedy corporations is painted in a bad light by a website that is supposed to be for parents and kids. I guess we're just not suppose to question our financial and intellectual superiors in the tall buildings. We do know the people that work for this website are making more than $30,000 a year though, I guess we can't trust them either.
