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.

Horrible portrayal of women

This film only depicts women as props to the main character to be tossed around. They are unidimensional, incredibly sexualised and presented as unintelligent and inconsequential.

This title has:

Too much sex
age 18+

One of the best action movies of the 2000's

This movie is one of my favourites ever. It is so action packed, crazy, raunchy, gory, and feels like a GTA movie. The plot is that this hitman is poisoned with a Chinese drug and has to stay a live long enough to kill the man who poisoned him before the drug kills him. I really enjoy it but it is definitely not for anyone under 18

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
