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.

Enter Review Here We love the main character -- a monk who never hurts anyone -- but we wondered why there was over-the-top violence in a movie like this that basically had good messages for young teens. Half send up, half action flick, this had SO much potential, but a scene with TORTURE in it really put off me and my tweener kids.
