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 so bad

There is plenty of violence, but very little gore or blood. It's a very watered down version of the original. I would say there is more brutality than anything. There is some language and drug references. I also think it's a very interesting opportunity to teach your children about how easily their online movements can allow people (law enforcement or not) to track their location. This is very real and the movie makes it a major plot device. My son was astounded at how easy it was to track an individual. If you or your kids don't like mid-range violence (gunfire, victims dropping, robots being shot) then give it a miss. Otherwise, enjoy.
