It’s good I just have not watched it in a while. It is kind of a thiller I guess . But it’s not r rated so it’s alright for teens and tweens to.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Extreme Ops is a movie that is fairly successful at faking some pretty cool stunts, but a complete failure at trying to create some pretty cool characters. The plot is thin and the premise is an obvious pander to the Hollywood notion of what teenage boys think is cool. Basically, it's an opportunity for three kinds of stunts: get acquainted with the characters stunts, showing off for each other stunts, and getting away from the bad guy stunts.

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.
