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.

Pretty horrible

Not much to say, the repetitive suspenseful music makes it seem cheaply made. Acting wasnt that great. Plotwist is expected and doesnt give any proper explanation of why specific characters are doing what they are doing. Good to watch with olderkids where you can share your opinion out loud, and laugh at the poor acting without really needing to pay attention to understand the basic and plain plot.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
