Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

Gregory Hoblit's movie is beautifully composed -- scene for scene, it offers great-looking shadows, camera angles, and deep focus shots. But it moves slowly and utterly predictably, a sad state for a thriller. The liveliest surprises come from an observer of the central action, Rob's partner Detective Flores (Cliff Curtis). Though he only appears in a few scenes, Flores is consistently funny, clever, and convincing. And that makes him more than welcome.

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.
