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.

Great movie, saw when I was 10

Yes, there is violence in it, yet it is a very good movie. All kids 11 and up have seen violence and kissing (yes there is a couple kissing on a rooftop for a .5 second). There is revenge also, yet if you have a somewhat normal kid, they should know what revenge is and most of the time it is not good. There is not a highly defined ¨good role model¨ for the ¨kiddos¨ but there is Batman. Also some cursing.
