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.

Better than the reviews

Very violent and relistic cop moivie. Just caught it on cable...tons of f-bombs and other inapropriate verbage for kids. But...a really intense movie for those that like this type of movie. Whitiker and Reeves are really good in this flick.Overall much better than I was led to believe....BUT NOT FOR KIDS.
