Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (7 ):

It's hard to find much good in this strange flick, which doesn't seem to know who its target audience is. Bling is an odd mix of a bad, one-note romcom mixed with a superhero movie, and it's a combination that doesn't work. Kids young enough to be into the movie likely won't be interested in the mechanics of a marriage proposal, especially the ones who will be entertained by the exhausting stream of nonstop action. The characters are flat, the robots are only mildly funny (in fact, some of the minor robot characters are a bad rip-off of the minions from Despicable Me, only they're minotaurs here), and it's hard to tell who the villain actually is.

Also, a lot of parents will probably be horrified by the consumerist message and the one-dimensional portrayal of the female characters. Who thought it was a good idea to show Sam putting an engagement ring he couldn't afford on his credit cards? Most kids won't get that the filmmakers are trying to illustrate what not to do, and most parents will wonder why these kinds of details are in a kids' movie in the first place.

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.
