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.

A great movie!

Honestly, it's not even that gory! Common sense media is overreacting because I say it should get 3/5 for violence, not 5/5 because its perfectly appropriate for anyone age 13 and up because it's not that violent. My kids watched it and they thought it was not that gory and the worst you get a shooting or a mild decapitation or some blood spurt.
