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.

Absolutely awful

I cannot express this strongly enough. This is positively the worst movie I have ever seen.

Violent and dark

This film is set in the last year of life for Capone, so you would expect the violence to be at a minimum. We all know that he led an ultra violent life, but I think the violent scenes in this film (mostly as flashbacks) were extended when there was no need to be, seeing a man get stabbed in the next circa 30 times after prolonged torture was excessive and unnecessary, the sexual scenes for me were at a minimum, brief and clothed. The language was coarse throughout, with barely one scene not containing f**k or c**t or mother f*****r. I would not let my children view this and my eldest is 17, this has the potential to warp young minds and harm, it has to be 18+.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
