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.

Idk why its a rating to see if its kid friendly, when the movie was made for adults anywayyyy... So for the ones thats saying its not kid friendly, we know that. It wasnt made for kids lol

The film is very bloody, but this violence is easily manageable from an early age because the victims are often the villains of the story, so horrible criminals, but also because the film is tinged with a lot of humor.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
