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.

La mayoría que puso reseñas acá son unos Llorones

Por Favor! Que llorones se ponen unos cuantos hoy en día, recuerdo que miraba Animes como Naruto y Dragon Ball con poco mas de 4 Años y me encantaba y no soy ahora ningún puto Psicópata! Animes donde habían muertes, sangre, desmembramientos, la película "Next Gen" no es la mejor película del mundo y en momentos es incluso redundante hacia la trama, pero es completamente comprensible, está orientada para los niños y se nota, no trata de ser la Octava Maravilla del mundo, tiene una trama simple con Detalles para que los adultos que la vean se mantengan entretenidos, pero entretenido no es sinónimo de Bueno, lo que sí recalco es que la animación y la Acción son Brutales, las escenas de acción son muy Buenas y muy bien dirigidas a diferencia de la trama que aunque si puede incluso ser profunda creo que de eso es lo que más peca debido a que trata de darle mas profundidad de la necesaria, pero no me quejo, solo me caga la gente llorona que aquí comenta sus reseñas, por favor, la mayoría de ustedes son de los Estados Unidos! Uno de los países más violentos del mundo!! Le echan la culpa a las películas, comics, videojuegos de la mala educación que dan en su propio país y la cultura de mierda que tienen de desprestigio al prójimo! No interesa si no dejan mirar esta película a sus hijos o no los dejan jugar videojuegos o lo que sea, su país va a seguir tal cual como está y empeorando!!

Not what I expected

I would not watch this movie again nor recommend it to anyone. I only continued to watch it because I had already started to watch it with my 10 year old. I felt that she was at an age that could process the contents and knows right from wrong. I strongly suggest if you were to watch.. to watch this movie together as a family and talking about the various dark moments & violence contents. Like a lot of other have said. I was very surprised at the implied language and attitude from the dog in this movie. There was several moments, almost every five minutes, where the dog was angry and being bleeped out for profanity and it is hard to overlook. It also has a more violent tone then I was expecting. The overall messages I feel were not bad, but the violent undertones made it hard to see those messages most of the times. The villian in the movie becomes extremely violent and wants to kill people, which I feel is inappropriate for children who may not be able to process it.
