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.

Fun and relatively clean all around

This is a great film to watch with teenagers as the themes walk them through anger, pressure, honor and more. The fight scenes don't go into the bloody category yet also don't lose any grit. The reliance on natural storytelling versus excessive CGI is also noteworthy. Only a few swear words (that are likely just thrown in as they don't help the plot). Enjoy!

Great time at the movies but has a rating for a reason

Okay so I'll say I really wholeheartedly enjoyed this movie I clapped by the end and was happy I went great time at the movies however this review also comes with a reminder/warning this movie has a pg-13 rating for a reason it's nonstop action pretty much and also a great deal of profanity however if your kids really wanna see it and can take the content I mentioned then it's highly recommended

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
