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 worth it

My husband and I watched this movie last night and turned it off. This movie should have been rated R. A lot of graphic scenes with the black plague & demonic beings. Use caution if watching with a child.

This title has:

Too much violence

Okay movie, but for a more mature audience.

This movie is not appropriate for children and when viewing this movie, make sure you know the maturity level of your children. If they are interested in seeing it, it is important to keep in mind how they will react to various scenes. This might be one for you to watch before they do and decide from there.

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
