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.

Some Sad Parts, but Great

Sad at end for some kids. Kids 11 and older will like it though. 2.5/5 violence, 1/5 romance, 1.5/5 language, 2/5 drinking/drugs/smoking

Too much violence

Great but violent at times

The movie is great and good fun and has message about how revenge does not help you and how you need to be responsible. However there are some very violent scenes like when sand man had face grinded and scratched and pressed against a moving train. Some scenes may scare young kids. There is also a scene where spider man is stabbed. Several people get blown up and multiple people die, including some of the good guys. There is also gun violence at one scene.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
