Did we miss something on diversity?

So many problems...

I like Liam Neeson's acting but I have so many problems with this movie. 1. They squeezed in as many minorities as possible, only to degrade or kill them off. 2. Too many jokes made at the expense of others ethnic backgrounds. 3.The only person trying to solve the mystery, legally, is told to leave well enough alone. Also, the kills in this movie can get really brutal so I wouldn't take anyone under 13 to see this. Even if you take a kid over 13, talk about what happens in the movie, because many of the jokes are crude and disrespectful.
