Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (6 ):

Young fans of the TV series will naturally gravitate toward this action-packed movie. But their parents should know that it ups the show's violence level (many battle scenes feature hand-to-hand fights, gun use, and super powers). Even kids who are unaffected by the series' cartoon battles could find the clashes here upsetting, since the live-action factor makes it more difficult to distinguish between fantasy and reality. And for really young kids, the very idea of aliens invading a town is nothing more than a nightmare waiting to happen.

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.
