Attack of the Murder Hornets is informative and often interesting, but at 86 minutes it's a repetition fest that would've been just as illuminating at half the length. We're told over and over how important are honeybees to the agricultural ecosystem and to the pocketbooks of beekeepers. We're told over and over how deadly and invasive the hornets are. We're told over and over of the damage they've done. We watch repeated trial and error attempts at gluing monitors to sedated hornets. Once would've been sufficient. The one time detailed explanations would've been helpful -- when men in protective suits go in at night to wrap the nest -- no one explains anything.

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.
