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.

This movie is for older teens...

VIOLENCE/HORROR: This movie is filled with intense violence such as: stabbing, fighting/punching, and sci-fi terror. SEX/NUDITY: In one brief scene, a woman seductively winks and giggles at a man, to which they later have sex together. In the scene, they take each other’s shirts off revealing her bra and his chest. Then it shows them intensely kissing on bed then rolling off of it, and cuts the scene before it gets more mature. They are later seen in the movie holding hands and flirting/kissing. LANGUAGE/PROFANITY: At least 2 uses of “f—k”, and a couple of uses of “s—t”, “d—k”, “hell” and “damn”. DRINKING/DRUGS: There is mild references to wine and shows of some characters smoking. MESSAGE/EDUCATION: This movie slightly represents team work and great attitude of defeating enemy’s.

Too much violence and swearing!

I think parents who are considering this movie need to know that there is a scene where a jumper is stabbed violently by the Paladin who has caught him. Not great! :( Also, there is a lot of swearing peppered throughout the movie. Definitely for kids 13 years plus.
