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.

Not realistic action movie

Its all about violence and the story is not very realistic. Everyone around this family dies but they stay totally unharmed, even if a tank is shooting at them. Seems as the whole country is after this american family LOL!!! Halfway the movie i decided to go to bed.

This title has:

Too much violence

Absolute Must See

Kept my adrenaline pumping and me on the edge of my seat. Was not expecting such a fast pace plot but it is pulled off perfectly. Definitely a different role than normal for Owen Wilson but this film shows how diverse of an actor he is and how well he can pull off serious and dynamic characters. Recommend for sure
