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.

It's an ok movie.

A football player is shown tasering himself in the thigh, and it is said he pulled out his own teeth and superglued them back in. A graphic surgery scene. Photos of a dead woman's hands, which look mangled and bloody. Some swearing.

Another upsetting movie

I liked at review and said nothing about blaspheme. Usually it will say ALL the curse words, apparently not in this case. Movie was good until they blaspheme the Lord then its over for me!! Sad that they can't just make a move without speaking blaspheme against our Lord!!

This title has:

Too much swearing
