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.

Mindless summer blockbuster

A summer blockbuster. Big explosions adjacent to large historical structures. On location with lots of chasing. Good chemistry between Thompson and Hemsworth...not shocking. The only scene that was a definite no-no was the club scene and the CGI that was employed to make Vungus felt a little icky and not in that bad but feels good kind of way. Other than that it was a fun ride.

Pretty Good!

We got this movie and me and my 6 year old brother saw it. He can handle movies like this and likes them like me. It was pretty funny with few swears, but still funny. We thought the pawn guy was pretty funny. The only scary part was in the end when they fight "The Hive". so I recommend this to you and your family any ages above 9. Unless your like my brother and can handle stuff like this.
