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.

One of the best comic book movies ever

This is one of my all time favourite movies! The action is great, the humour is great, and the performances are great. Be warned though that just because it's a superhero movie does not mean it's for kids

This title has:

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

    Not a superhero movie; a dark, gory, complex morality tale.
