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.

This title has:

Too much violence
not rated for age

Keep your kids away...No better yet, stay home with them!

This movie was nothing like the reviews I had read - until the last 20 minutes of it. The first 60+ minutes were horrible: dark, disturbing, and violent. I received the tickets free...probably because no one would pay to see it...It was the worst movie I have ever seen in my life, and I felt like a terrible parent for taking my children to see it!
